Can An Ekg Find Anything Wrong When Your Heart Flutters
Depends: When you feel fluttering in your chest, it may be due to irregular, rapid heart beat, i.e. "arrythmia." if that is the case, the ekg will only show the abnormality if it is hooked up at the exact moment the symptoms occur, i.e. When the abnormal rhythm is present. (prolonged monitoring, with devices worn at home, can be used to try to capture the rhythm when symptoms of palpitations occur.). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more
I had an ekg because I'm having heart flutters. I have panic attacks but what would have made "widespread changes " in my ekg?
What ARE the changes: It really depends what these changes are ... some are more worrisome than others. The word "widespread" would mean that the changes are seen in multiple leads suggesting that the finding is seen in multiple areas of your heart. But what the changes are...t wave inversion, ST depression, etc is much more relevant. It may mean nothing much or need further testing. Ask your doctor to interpret. ...Read more
Woke up, went outside for a smoke, felt heart flutters and then fainted. Went to doc and EKG is normal. Could the issue be head related?
Probably not: Fainting is an important symptom. To be head related, it would have to be a seizure, and this is very unlikely based on what u describe. Because u had a fluttering sensation first, it implies that u fainted due to a heart issue. Most common problem would be brief atrial fibrillation, but u r quite young for that. I would do a holter monitor on you to track your heart rate through the day. ...Read more

Hi! Can exercise cause heart flutters (PVCs)? I've had echo, EKGs, Holter, event, but no stress test. Cardio cleared me. What is this? Thx
PVCs: PVCs can occur at any time. They do not necessarily occur due to exercise. They are more interesting when they occur very very frequently, especially after someone has had a heart attack. Your normal testing indicates you are in good shape! http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/premature-ventricular-contractions/basics/definition/con-20030205 ...Read more
I had an EKG done today after having some heart palpitations & all that come about was RSR in V1, can this explain dizziness & heart flutters?
No: an ECG is a static test and so as it has been read is normal. RSr likely refers to incomplete RBBB (normal variant in 15% of adult population). If u r dizzy and/ or palpiations, the yield on plain ECG is only good if u had ur sxs at that time. A normal resting ECG bodes well for u, but u need an even monitor or a holter monitor to evaluate for arrhythmia, if any. See a cardiologist. ...Read more
Heart flutters (PVCs) during exercise; had multiple EKGs, echo, Holter, event, and physical by cardio who cleared me. Are these benign? Thank you docs
My breath catches and heart flutters at times esp when i take a deep breath. Ekg stress test normal. Echo showed "normal" murmer. What could it be?
24 hr holter monitor: There is no normal murmur to my knowledge at the age of 32 yrs , unless you are pregnant. Also it might be panic disorder , but i would do 24 hr holter monitor , thyroid tests if i were your physician to rule out other causes. You should see a physician for your symptoms. ...Read more
Been having heart palpitations for a around a week now, i'll usually get around 2-3 flutters and fast heartbeat.Had clear ekg, chest x-ray, blood test.
Usually ok: Palpitations in an 18 year old who is otherwise healthy and has a normal ekg and chest xray are not usually of concern - but you should discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more
I get Heart flutters when lying down then burping right after? why? Normal EKG/echo/holter/stress. Occasional PVC's/PAC's with anxiety.
Stress: make sure you have a better control of your stress and anxiety even if you have to take medicine for it make sure you do not have any digestive problems that could imitate heart problem since you were cleared by cardiologist from any heart problem you might need to see a specialist on cardiac electrical system to make sure these arrhythmia are not from faulty heart wiring good luck ...Read more
