Irregular Heart Beat
I was at the doctor yesterday for an eye infection, and when she checked my heart, she asked me if I have heart palpitations ever, b/c she is hearing an irregular heart beat. I told her that I had chest pain in the past, but have always attributed it to stress/anxiety. She told me to come back in a month for an EKG. Everyone I speak with are in shock that she didn't do the EKG right then and there and decided to have me wait a month. I had blood work about 2 months ago which all came back fine, my blood pressure/heart rate is also okay and I have never had this problem before. I did check my blood pressure again on my fathers home machine, which also detects irregular heart beats, and the machine did show about 3 out of the 5 times that I checked that my beat was irregular. I am thinking of going for a second opinion, as I rather be safe than sorry. Has anyone had any experiences with irregular heart beats? TIA!
