Hi from the UK,
I know probably this is the wrong place but I have been searching the net for ecg information. I won't go into the long story here but for years I have had on and off problems with fast heart rate tachycardia. I also have angina which I use the nitro spray when needed and I take 10mg Amlodipine daily which I have been taking for nearly 2 years.
Anyway the last time I was in hospital they again setup some more tests a treadmill which they never really told me if it was okay or not and an echo cardiogram which I was told was okay. I wore a 24 hour monitor and the results from that the doctor just said I should go see him when I am having the problem as something showed up but he needed me there when it was happening.
Since my last time in hospital around 7 months ago, about a month after I started to get what I can only describe as fluttering and something like a feeling moving up in my chest and breathless with it when it is at it's worst.
It's gradually got worse and the fluttering is more or less here everyday now sometimes a lot worse than others. I had a talk with my doctor about it over the phone who suggested that I get a personal type ecg monitor which I now have and have started to use after he showed me how to use it properly. I have to take copies of ecgs I have done from it back to him later next week. I thought that I might share them here to see if any of you could shed some light onto the ECG readings I have attached here. I have removed my full name for obvious reasons but all my other info on it is correct.  Thank you for your time.
Did this earlier evening when I had no fluttering feelings.
Appears to be a normal sinus rhythm
Did this early evening before I setup the time and date on ecg. I got a pain in middle of my chest on and off for a few minutes so thought I would do a trace and here it is, no flutter feelings.


Appears to be a normal sinus rhythm with motion artifact (or a false signal created by static as you  are moving about).

This is also when I got the pain but no flutter feelings so carried on another trace. Year is wrong again because I had not set the year and time.
Again this appears to be a normal sinus rhythm with artifact.

This one was done when I was feeling the fluttering.
This appears to be normal sinus rhythm with 3 premature beats but without a calipers and just viewing online I cannot say with any certainy whether the abberant beats are junctional in nature of ventricular beats.
Slight flutter feeling on this one I had.
Again one premature beat noted and is same type of beat as the 3 noted in above tracing.
This is the last one I just did but with no flutter feeling going on.
This appears to be a Normal Sinus Rhythm.  You heart rate has been in the 70s - 80s in all of the strips. 
Important :  PLEASE, don't depend on any reading you get via the internet.

Please remember I am not a Doctor and your final reading needs to be done by an expert in reading Hotler Monitoring strips.

Also without having the tracings on paper and being able to use my calipers it is difficult to give you an accurate reading.

I posted answers into your original post.

Thank you,
