Can Abnormal EKG be normal for an individual?

I've had 8 EKGs, that show I've had an Anteroseptal infarct. But, my cardiologist tells me that because my Heart Cath came back normal, I should worry. My really bad EKGs are normal for ME! Could there have been an error on my Heart Cath? So many bad EKGs worry me.

I presume that you meant "I should not worry.", right?

Did your EKGs say, "Possible Anteroseptal infarct"? The EKG can the measure electrical pulses through the heart, and the EKG can locate problems with the heart's electricity, but in many cases EKGs can only "suggest" possible problems.

What did your EKGs actually say? What is so bad about them? Why did you have 8 EKGs? Did you have a bunch of palpitations? Did you suffer from a fast heartbeat? Slow heartbeat?

Heart Catheterization, under the supervision of a competent, qualified Cardiologist, is perhaps the most accurate procedure to check for heart disease.

What were the results of the Heart Catheterization evaluation?

I don't blame you for being worried. Why do many? Were they taken over a period of years?
