Well, symptoms ARE such telltale signs. I mean if you have runny nose and coughs, you'd think you have a cold. I guess you're hoping to know if there are less traumatic ones besides cardiac arrest. I don't want you to misunderstand. Cardiac arrest can happen but not all cases of Long QT ends up in that. If you felt chest or neck pounding then you might have had a case of Long QT. Irregular heart beat can go on then return to normal. In serious cases cardiac arrest happens. If you never felt the common symptoms then I don't see why you should worry. Going back to the cold analogy, if your nose isn't running and you're not coughing then you normally don't worry that you caught the cold, right? But if you're worried, I say double check with your doctor.
