Does a normal EKG mean my heart is fine? I had mild symptoms of heart disease, so my doctor did an ekg. It was normal. Does this mean i definitely don’t have heart disease?

Does a normal EKG mean my heart is fine? I had mild symptoms of heart disease, so my doctor did an ekg. It was normal. Does this mean i definitely don’t have heart disease?

In a way yes: Since you have a normal ekg it means that you did not have a heart attack in the past. However a notmal ekg cannot r/o coronary artery disease. Stress test and echocardiography should be done to assess your coronary arteries and your cardiac structure. ...Read more

Many kinds exist: But why do you think this? Truth be told, I'd suspect heart disease if and only if you are not able keep up athletically with other typical people your own age. There are plenty of different kinds of heart disease, most very uncommon at your age, and with normal exercise tolerance and a normal physical exam and no nasty rhythm problems or obviously heart type pain, I'd Rx: "Stop worrying." ...Read more

Could be: Or could be from reflux or musculoskeletal source or respiratory symptoms (--why are you smoking up to 2 packs a day?). If your dr. Has ruled out heart or endocrine source for symptoms, then ask about these other options. Once serious and specific-treatment sources eliminated, then can relax if / when it shows up. ...Read more

Chest pain: There are many causes of chest pain. Heart disease is but one of them. A lot more information is needed to judge your risk of heart disease. You should discuss this question with your doctor who knows you the best. ...Read more

Went to ER had all tests done, they're normal . 26 y/o female great lab results...Could i still have heart disease even with a great ekg. I am obese.?

Yes, but not likely: Your question includes minimal information and i can't provide a very certain answer. However, i can say this. An ekg can miss many kinds of heart disease. A treadmill stress test is better at checking to see if chest pain is likely to be from your heart or not. However, you are probably low risk just by virtue of your gender and age. ...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
