If : If you are still concerned about your daughter, then you should definitely see a specialist. It sounds as though her doctor has been pretty thorough with the testing he/she has ordered, but if your daughter is still symptomatic, it is worth looking farther for answers. Call your child's doctor and ask for a specialist recommendation. Good luck!

Yes: Palpitations are often nothing but teen years are when we see a spike in the diagnosis of svt. Her asthma medicines will speed her heart rate anyway which might explain all, but they could help trigger svt. A 24 holter monitor would really help if she is having palpitations on a daily basis. Yes see a pediatric cardiologist.
