What can cause feelings of passing out? Haven't felt right in 5 months now. Had different tests, all negative. Including ekg's

Many things: This can be metabolic, neurological, medication related, cardiad, absence seizures, blood pressure related, not eating enough, .. Too much to list. Perhaps a more comprehensive multi-disciplinary evaluation may be helpful - try mass general, lahey clinic, or a university based medical center if doctors are stuck - a psychiatric or psychological consult can also help if its anxiety. ...Read more

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

Start a new hobby, book or sport on Monday to feel extra healthy. Just deciding to quit was 1/2 the battle! ...Read more

What does an EKG 12-lead impression: non-specific st t wave abnormality mean?I i just need to know what this test result means.

What does an EKG 12-lead impression: non-specific st t wave abnormality mean?I i just need to know what this test result means.

A : A "nonspecific" abnormality means that the wave doesn't look like the typical, standard ekg. The st-t wave is the wave that occurs right after the qrs. Often times the wave doesn't look typical, but it is important to note if prior ekg's have appeared the same for the patient. Also, some medications can cause these changes. ...Read more

Im 22 I have had about 10 ekgs and one eco test all fine so why do I still from time to time think something's wrong with my heart ? Aniexty anybody?

Im 22 I have had about 10 ekgs and one eco test all fine so why do I still from time to time think something's wrong with my heart ? Aniexty anybody?

Need more info: While ecgs and an echo can diagnose most serious heart conditions, they don't catch them all. But for an otherwise healthy 22 year old with 10 normal ecgs and a normal echocardiogram, it is very very unlikely that you have a serious heart condition. What is the specific symptom that you experience to lead you to believe something is wrong with your heart? Why did you undergo a liver biopsy? ...Read more

Weakness and dizzy: are symptoms that are nonspecific. Probably unrelated to cholesterol or cardiac issues if the EKG is normal. Perhaps you should seek a second opinion. You are in a very small town. Fortunately you are less than 50 miles from Chattanooga TN where there is a university hospital. Make an appointment to be seen there by an Internist for evaluation. ...Read more

What is the purpose of having t.Waves, q.T. Intervals, long q.T syndrome studies with stress & EKG tests for? What are they and what reason/diagnosis?

Arrythmia: The different waves on the ekg represent the electrical impulses reaching different parts of the heart as it beats. Long qt syndrome is a condition where the electrical signals take longer than normal to pass through the heart. It may be caused by medication or may be congenital. Long qt may progress to life-threatening arrhythmias, so it is important to be monitored by your doctor frequently. ...Read more
