Stay calm: 28 year old woman with cardiac concerns. Please stay calm and follow up with your physician. Hypertension is a disease with no symptoms that can affect young people, as can arrhythmia. EKG is one point in time and arrhythmia can be episodic and needs to be investigated with a ZIO patch or holter/event monitoring. You need a cardiology consult. Stay strong and manage it. You can do it, good luck.
