ECG Question

Hello!

I had a perfect echocardiography last year.

Two weeks ago I had an ecg (to check my qt interval) the ecg machine recorded 'left anterior hemiblock'.

When the ecg was taken, my heart was up to 150 bpm - I was so stressed because the nurse said there was something wrong.

Anyway, my gp refused to refer to cardiologist as he said the finding was insignificant.

I'm just wondering why, in one year, a young healthy person would develop left anterior hemiblock? Or was the very high heart responsible for a slightly skewed ecg result?

I'm so stressed about this = any advice or thoughts would be appreciated!!

Linda

Re: ECG Question

Greetings In my past if I did not enjoy what the doctor had to say I looked for another. Of course everyone makes their own health care choices in life and is in charge of their own health care. If in fact the General Practioner does not allow a needed referral a different General Practitioner might provide the referral to the cardiologist desired. Peace
