Can you give us some more info?
1. Were you having heart palpitations in the midst of panic attacks and anxiety?
2. If so, were they the reason you went to the doc and ended up with the heart monitor?
3. Do you know if there was any correlation between the palpitations that you felt (if you did) and the abnormalities from the test?

In my opinion, anyone with heart palpitations should have a check up to make sure there's nothing awry with their heart. I did - although I didn't know it at the time, they turned out to be symptoms of the anxiety train that was about to run over me. But it was comforting to know that my heart was ok. Probably 99% of the people on this board with palpitations don't have an abnormal heart.

vdaloka - we'll pray for you. Do your best not to be a "fortune teller". Keep us informed.

Ok...so this is a good lesson for all of us that if you're having heart palps you should have it checked out.

vdaloka - it's reasonable for you to be "concerned". But a specialist will give you the information and a course of action to deal with it.

It's kind of funny that it's called a "stress test". Heck we have those every day! : )

True..I am just hoping that it is abnormal just because my heart beats faster at times because of the anxiety.
