Heart & Cardiology/abnormal ekg's
Hello, i am a 44 year old female. I had seen a cardiologist about 7 years back regarding chest pain and all test were negative for any mitral valves problems. Recently i have been having tightness in chest along with chest pain, sometimes lightheaded, a discomfort in my right hand. An ekg was performed and showed atrial premature complexes, left atrial abnormality , t abnormality in anteroseptal leads. Heart rate 81, RR 743ms, P 100 ms, PR 126 ms, QRS 70ms, QT 372 ms. QTC 433 ms. P (11) 0.08mV. S (V1) -0.92 mV. R (V5) 1.48 mV. my doctor wants to follow up with cardiologist again and i believe its from the t waves. I had recent lipid profile and it was slightly elevated for the first time, i am a smoker, i exercise and under lots of stress, advised me that in the mean time if chest discomfort persist go to the emergency room. Should i be really concerned if i already had cardiac testing 7 years ago.
