So I've been having chest pains and weird sensations lately...
Like, some kind of tightness on the left side, heaviness... hard to describe.
In the end I went to do a 24 hour Holter ECG...
And here's what it returned among other things.
-5 SA-blocks, 2nd degree type 2
-1 VA-block, type 1
Both were transistent - meaning they come and go. Yet both sound threatening enough as is. And then...
-Increased QT-interval - up to 482 ms
Although cardiologist said everything is fine and only wondered if I fainted at the episodes of blocks, of course I wasn't satisfied yet and went to Dr. Google... and what do I find?
Somebody said...
Sometimes, prolonged QT intervals in people with long QT syndrome never cause problems. However, physical or emotional stress might "trip up" a heart susceptible to prolonged QT intervals. This can cause the heart's rhythm to spin out of control, triggering life-threatening, irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias)


I couldn't be more scared now cry I don't want it! Tell me, are these conditions really that life-threatening? sad What can I do about it?

First off, stay off of Dr. Google. Dr. Google has not ever cured or diagnosed anyone properly yet. Listen to the cardiologist. Hearts are his specialty not Dr. Google. If it will help calm your anxiety get a 2nd opinion with another cardiologist & take your report with you to discuss with him.

If you continue to surf the net all this will do is drive the anxiety through the roof & realistically, what good will that do you? Don't keep trying to look for something that is not there. That will suck the life out of you & life is too short.

Take care.

I suggest that you go the this site & read; www.MayoClinic.com & read up on LQTS. You will get the most accurate information on their website & it is user friendly.

Take care.
