I had a strange EKG with inverted T1 to T3 variance done two weeks ago. I have no medical history because I am adopted. The EKG was done because of concern I was having a gallbladder attack which I wasn't. I went to see a cardiologist who said it could be a normal variance but ordered an echo and a stress echo. I did the echo that day and had to wait a week to do the stress echo. I am 40 years old, don't smoke and exercise regularly. I am not overweight. I went for the stress echo today and had to get off the treadmill quickly because the tech saw something "not right" I wasn't feeling any pain at all but the other echo tech said while we were waiting for the results to be read, "don't run" and that my heart started throwing extra beats. Imagine, this, my doc. isn't in town and after I was released with the ok to leave (they said I recovered well) I am left wondering what on earth is going on. Help!

I suspect the tech saw some ectopic beats and when they stopped the test your cardiac rhythm returned to normal.  If they had documented anything life threatening I believe they would have admitted you to the hospital.
It is a good sign that you had not chest pain or any sx with the extra beats.
If you should experience anything out of the norm do not hesitate presenting to the clinic or the ER just to be on the safe side.
Big breath and I will keep you in my prayers that nothing seriously is wrong.
Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard any professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on HealingWell.
