Just wondered if anyone could help. I had an ECG done nearly 2 weeks ago, as had been having palpitations on and off. Have had these for years, started when thyroid was overactive 7 years ago. Anyhow, phoned yesterday for results, expecting them to be fine, but was told ECG looked fine, as in, normal rythym and stuff, but blood seemed to be flowing quicker than normal through ventricles.
Was told this could be nothing, and she was wanting to let my usual dr see results(she is off till next week). Said that could be various causes, one of them being if my thyroid is off. She told me not to worry, there was nothing worrying or urgent on it, but I am worrying! I see my own dr next Thursday.
Does anyone know what this could mean?
I have taken thyroxine for 6 years now after having treatment for my overactive thyroid. Have low iron levels and am anaemic on and off, but last bloods showed that was all fine back in September. Im 37, and no other symptoms. Well, I do struggle with anxiety and panic, which I know will not help all this, but thats another story!
Thanks for any help,
Don't worry, I get this, ECG is abnormal, but within normal non life threatening parameter's.
I was referred to a cardiologist who looked at the results, did not seemed at all concerned, listened to my heart, heard a murmur, once again said he thought was nothing, I am getting a Holter monitor in a couple of weeks for 24 hours and a Echo on the heart in about 3 weeks. (no great rush it seems.)
Said he was not worried at all, I get PVC's, skipped and double beats, and apparently I have a murmur (all new to me) etc. I freak out, but my doctor and cardiologist look at me funny, and say "stop it, don't worry."
I too have a slightly overactive thyroid, but the thyroid levels are normal within the blood so I never require treatment.
So I try my best not too worry, just wait for the doctor, most likely they will do some more tests, just to be on the safe side.
