Ekg Stress Test Treadmill
Can someone with a normal EKG and EKG treadmill stress test still have structural heart problems? Frequent pvc's. Few paired/multifocal. Will it show?
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more
Slight chest ache for last year+. Drs assure its not cardiac related nor costochondritis. Had chest X-ray, ekg, treadmill stress test. What is it?!

Frequent pvc's at rest/active. Normal ekg's, treadmill stress test, currently wearing a 14 day holter monitor. Could my period be inducing the pvc's ?
Unlikely: When a holter monitor is used, up to 80% of apparently healthy people will have pvc's. Your normal 12-lead ekg and exercise tolerance test will exclude the presence of most underlying heart diseases which can account for frequent pvc's. Other possibilities include lung diseases, sleep apnea, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, and other stimulants. I don't think frequent pvc's are associated with menses. ...Read more

I had a reg treadmill stress test, EKG and chst xray all normal initally had chest pain. I heard this type of stress test is not accurate woman?
My cardiologist did a regular treadmill stress test on me which was normal, so was resting EKG and chst xray why do i hear stress test is not gd women?
Stress test ok: The problem with the stress test in women is that there are more false positive which means the test can be positive even though you do not have disease thus "falsely positive". However on the flip side, if the test is negative then it has about an 80% predictive value meaning if it is negative then about 80% of the time you do not have disease which is about the same value as in males. You are ok ...Read more
Do I still have to worry for my chest pain even if I have normal 2deho Jan 2013, ecg, treadmill stress test I'm always thinking of heart attack/stroke?
THE QUESTION IS : Why would you have chest pain? Years ago when people were profoundly unhappy some spoke of "heartache" - a kind of deep sadness experienced as a dull ache in the chest. Lacking a physical cause, you might review your history and see if there's cause for being very hurt. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Worried about heart and sca?!..Normal ekg..Normal echo..Normal stress test and chest xray..Blood work good too..Very nervous and high anxiety?!
I get angina symptoms but the doctors say that my heart is fine. Small vessel disease showed up in stress test, CTA, x-ray, echo and EKG. I have 10 lesions in my brain and theyre trying to rule out MS but would they miss SVD in MRI?
No, if done correct: Both stress test with radiotracer (nuclear stress test) and cardiac MRI with contrast can have findings that correlate with small vessel disease. If a nuclear stress test is definitely positive, the CTA negative and the person has typical anginal symptoms; they more likely have small vessel disease than anything else. Chest pain on a treadmill remains the most reliable indicator for true angina. ...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
