My Echo Test Shows No Rwma
Thank you. My 24hr Holter showed 1700 pvcs. I was told my echocardiogram showed a healthy heart, & I passed a stress test (non-nuclear). Still worried?
A bit more info: Would help. Do you have symptoms from the palpitations. Did you have increased PVCs with exercise. Usually any treatment isn't necessary unless you have symptoms a major arrhythmic event or underlying structural heart disease(which appears not to be the case for you). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...Read more
My echocardiogram shows diastolic dysfunction . The cardiologist i saw today said no worries comes with age. I'm 60. My EKG showed silent mi?
Not clear: Diastolic dysfunction is a stiffening of the heart that one experiences with aging, especially if one had high blood pressure or diabetes or being overweight. There is no specific treatment other than exercise and control the above risk factors. If the ECG showed a silent infarct, one has to take into account the infarct location and your symptoms. You may need a stress test if you have symptoms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am 23 yrs old.My ECG reprt shws inferior lateral ischemia .. I have done Eco . Eco reprt shows LVH. Dctr said its conginital.wht I do nw?
Cardiology consult: Left ventricular hypertrophy on echo and an abnormal ECG should be eval'd by cardiology who can help decide if this is truly abnormal or if it is due to an "athlete's heart", or a normal variant. A detailed family history will be needed -- be prepared. Patients are often nervous at the time of a consult. Bring a list of questions, and another person or pen & paper to take notes. ...Read more
Ct revealed moderate residual thymic hyperplasia, Dr. Says no concern still having chest pain/short of breath, had ctpa negative what can I do?
Get a consult: You've asked repeatedly about your thymus and you need to accept the reassurance that your physician and our team has given you. I understand that you are a young man and you're already aware that some of the pain is in your sternum itself, not your heart. You also claim "high blood pressure", "angina" and are on a SSRI. You need specialist consultation in cardiology & psychiatry, not HealthTap. ...Read more
3 months back echo normal. Stress test @ -ve. 1 mnth bak had dns surg. Had nerve peeling pain on chest. Doc said it is nccp. ECG shows LVH now. Wry?
LVH is nonspecific: ECG often will show LVH on one occasion and not show it on another. The ECG is not very accurate for LVH. The echo is a much more accurate test for LVH. It is unlikely u developed LVH over the past 3 months. Use the echo reading to determine if you have LVH. Deviated Nasal Septum surgery would have nothing to do with LVH. I don't know what u mean by nerve peeling but it doesn't sound like heart. ...Read more

I had an x ray that showed hyper inflated lungs. I had a chest CT scan8 months ago that showed normal lungs.spirometry test ok except 1 mildly off
Resting EKG showed minor t wave abnormalities.. Poss inferior ischemia but exsersise EKG (stress test) was normal. Been having chest pain. Heart ultrasound done 1 mth ago was normal. What else to do?
Next step: Your next step would be a myocardial perfusion study also known as a "chemical stress test". Regular stress tests have been known to have false negative findings especially in females but, at your age, unless there is a strong family history or other strong risk factors you should be ok. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I had a heart attack last week. The ECG was clear. Angiogram showed healthy arteries with no blockages. Bloodtest=0.40 of troponin.What caused it?
Great question &: Example. The false positive anterior mi is not uncommon in women due to breast tissue attenuation effects & these computer algorithms while sophisticated & often accurate have pitfalls. The human mind learns this pitfalls over time so we aren't tricked by them but still in cases like this an echocardiogram may needed to prove positivity. ...Read more
40yr fem, had normal stress test, cta chest, EKG, echo norm but dop sugg impair lv relax. Doctor says heart is fine. Holter shows pvc's and pac's isolated. But despite a norm diagnosis my heart flip flops a lot.
Should i worry about my heart at age 28? Normal ekgs( just shows fast heartrate), normal echo shows normal function, stress test good, blood work good?
Exercise ; eat well: Sounds like your heart is in good shape from your tests. Prevention is always the best. Exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet (low fat, low cholesterol) to prevent any heart problems in the future. Some people have heart attacks at an early age. Genetics, poor diet, and lack of exercise often play a role. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My husband has had 4 urine tests...2 dipstick showed trace..then 2 microscopic and one clear- trace on second. ultrasound showed small stone.why bl?
Sorry: I don't know what you are asking. Presence or absence of occult blood on dipstick does not prove or disprove stone. I can give you a meaningful answer if you can find out the size and location of your husband's stone.Look forward to finding your question again. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am 4wks 2dys pregnant.I had an ultrasound & it says my gsd is 17mm with no fetal echo seen yet.Is this normal?
Probably not: 4 weeks 2 days pregnant essentially means that you just missed a period 2 days ago so generally on ultrasound you won't see anything. If there is truly a 17 mm sac with nothing in it at all by a vaginal scan, it is unfortunately not a good sign for a viable pregnancy. The whole story doesn't make sense, so i'd recommend that they continue to follow your lab work and ultrasound to see what happens. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had my yearly exam.Did a cbc, lipids, a1c, thyroid&ua.Everything came back good except my ua showed moderate epithilial casts.What is that? Concerning?
Not usually: Renal epithelial cells are normally found in urine and moderate numbers are not suggestive of underlying disease. Its is also possible that the urine sample was contaminated and the epithelial cell are from lower urinary tract. Have this test repeated a few months later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My urinalysis showed a higher than normal protein level (think mine was 12) i tested negative for proturia and my dr said negative for multiple myloma?
Proteinuria: >150 mg: Proteinuria (abnormally high level of protein in urine) is usually defined as more than 150 milligrams of protein in urine per day. Proteinuria may be seen in a variety of diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure), many associated with kidney problems. Multiple myeloma is a form of blood and bone marrow cancer that can cause significant proteinuria. Urine protein electrophoresis may be necessary. ...Read more
Can I have pah if CT showed concern for it but echo was ok? Stress echo was done 6mnths before ct. Could the echo results have changed in 6mnths?
Possibly: Typically a stress echo only includes images on the left ventricle. So the right ventricle and tricuspid valve may not have been interrogated. The ct findings of pah are usually enlarged pulmonary arteries. This finding is suggestive but not diagnostic of pah. Further testing is needed to confirm diagnosis. ...Read more
