Hello all. Next year I am planning on having rhinoplasty, but ahead of time, I’m trying to get to the bottom of heart issues and straitened this out. I went for a EKG last week that showed pericarditis/st elevation/ sinus rhythm. My cardiologist brushed it off and said it was nothing. She then ordered me a stress test and a ultrasound of the heart(I did the ultra sound the same day). flash forward to Today, I had another ekg at a hospital(I checked in for a foot reason) and it showed a couple of things. First it showed peaked T-levels in the ambulance, which was weird. They did more ekgs, and Even the ambulance people were trying to figure out the different results the ekgs were showing. Eventually they said that my heart rate was fine but something was going on, maybe with my electrolytes. Then I had another one at the hospital, which showed probable Left Ventricular Hypertrophy and probable right bundle branch block. Strangely enough, last year when I went to the hospital, I had LVH also, but never knew.
the doctor told me since I was tall and slim, that LVH was normal and since it showed up on my ekg from last year, that it would be nothing to worry about
. He then did a minor echo test(I’m calling it minor cause according to the doctor, that machine wasn’t as good as the echo machine that the cardiologist use) which showed my heart function was normal and that the left side just pumped more blood than the right. I go for the stress test tomorrow and I’m just a bit stress. I try not to be stressed, as that doesn’t help but I can’t help it. Has anybody had different EKG results pop up?
Disclaimer(I should of put this at the top) no I’m not asking for a diagnosis so please don’t lock the thread or think I’m looking for answers from people who are not doctors. I just want to talk to people who have experienced multiple ekg results and LVH since I’m not well versed on that. I’m a 27 year old male
