Hi there, I posted a few weeks ago about abnormal ecg results. I now have a bit more information, and was looking for some opinions.
Im 37, and have had palpitations on and off for years, not bothersome, and I usually put it down to thyroid, or anaemia, hormonal, stress etc... all of which I have bother with sometimes(well, thyroid controlled now, did have RAI for graves disease 7 years ago and on thyroxine now).
Anyhow, went for an ecg 3 weeks ago, came back as normal sinus rhythm with short pr
interval. My GP emailed ecg to cardiologist, who replied saying it wasnt an av junctional rhythm as p waves normal and to get a 24 hr holter and if that didnt show anything up an event monitor.
I have looked things up on internet, bad move, and am terrified I have something like WPW. Cardiologist never mentioned this, and I told GP was worried about this and she said if had been things wouldve been moving a bit quicker etc... so it seems they are not worried about that, but Im still scared as they have never said that is ruled out because such and such...
Ive never had a fast heart rate, well, apart from with bother with my thryoid years ago, and occasionally if have a panic attack, which is rarely these days, and no other symptoms apart from palpitations that last a few seconds, maybe a couple of days a month, usually at hormonal times in cycle.
Im waiting on 24 hour tape, see what that says, but I just feel so worried about it,
Any advice, reassurance?!
