Upside Down Ekg
My t waves in my EKG were upside down in one part. But the rest of it looked fine, does that mean heart attack?
T and sympathy: T waves alone do not mean heart attack. You need to see the whole ECG. T waves absent other abnormalities are quite nonspecific. ...Read more
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
2 yo lips turned blue 2x. Once when tickling. Once holding upside down and windpipe got blocked 10 sec. Back to normal rt away. Has 3 innocent murmurs. Ekg/echo normal. Been to peds cardio 2x. Worry?
No: Peri-oral cyanosis (blue around the mouth and lips) is actually not all that uncommon in infants and toddlers. Same thing with blue hands and feet. Their vasculature (blood vessels) are so much more reactive than are old stiff ones as adults. So a little breath holding with tickling, a 10 second obstruction - these things can easily cause a little cyanosis. Had normal echo, totally reassuring! ...Read more
Playing w/2 yo. Turn him upside down to tickle. I think neck was bent he couldn't breathe. It was10 sec/ lips got blue. Happened 1 other time when tickling. Has a innocent murmur. Echo EKG ok. Worry?
See Pediatrician.: I don't think you should wait to see your pediatrician and check this out . He could get you a referral to a pediatric cardiologist. ...Read more
Should I sleep propped up as I keep having irreg EKG and I notice if I lay down it's more of a problem pain wise area irreg is right ventrical?
What causes a dip below the baseline in an EKG after the T wave in the opposite direction? It dips down then comes back to baseline until the P wave.
T wave inversion?: Without seeing a picture of the EKG, it's hard to interpret what you're trying to describe. Use HealthTap Prime to upload a picture of the EKG or talk to whoever ordered the EKG for better advice. It seems like the T wave itself (not whatever comes afterwards) would be inverted - T wave inversion. That can be caused by ischemia, although I suppose electrolyte problems can lead to it as well. ...Read more
Pulse is regularly mid-low 50s when sitting or lying down. Had 2 EKGs recently, both came back normal, tho pulse was high during both due to anxiety, not sure if that could impact results. Should I be concerned about the low pulse?
Can you please give me more information on what a left ventricular fascicilar block entails. Showed up on EKG and dr. Is down playing it. Thanks?
Electrical: Normal conduction through the heart arises in the right atrium and proceeds into the 2 ventricles, one pathway to the r ventricle and 2 pathways to the l: the anterior and posterior fascicles. Left anterior fascicular block causes no symptoms and requires no treatment but is sometimes associated with hypertension and coronary artery disease. Less commonly valvular disease. ...Read more
I feel like i can't take a full breath standing , but when i'm laying down i'm fine. I had EKG a few weeks ago was fine and a xray as well fine to .
Hello doc , last few days when laying down i have like skipping a beat from.time to time that i feel it like lighting bolt , i made EKG all normal , l?
Healthy: in an otherwise healthy person, I just treat palpitations on an as necessary basis. I like 5 mg Bystolic chewed up for this but any beta blocker will do. U do need labs to see if blood count, thyroid, potassium, calcium, and magnesium are OK. If increasing or very frequent, identification of what these extra beats are with an Event Recorder (10-14 day continuous recording) is indicated. HRS, MD ...Read more

I've had an accelerated heartrate for 12 hours now. Up to 120 laying down. Had EKG xray and blood work done. All normal. Healthy female 18?
Hear t rate: If you are 18 and have a healthy heart, look to see what you may be doing that could accelerate your hear rate. Evaluate you caffeine intake - energy drinks, coffee, starbucks. Check to see if you are taking any supplements to lose weight, medications for ADD or ADHD that are amphetamine based or weight loss medications, Also have your physician check your thyroid. ...Read more

Depends: Are these episodic, or is the fast heart beat present all the time? Do you have any other symptoms with the fast heart rates? Have you had your thyroid checked? How high is the heart rate? Please answer these and we will see. ...Read more
I get very nervous during dr appts and my EKG had me at tachycardia range. Why does this happen to me? I have been cutting down on alcohol and coffee.
Anxiety: will trigger the "flight or fight" reaction which causes your heart to race. You may have had a bad experience with doctors in the past or have a predisposition (or both) to high anxiety in certain situations such as the medical setting. Anxiety or panic attacks, in the absence of medical factors, are treatable. See: http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/topics/anxiety-disorders/index.shtml Take care. ...Read more
My heart rate is 73 resting but sometimes jumps to 117 after standing then goes back down to 96- 109 is this normal? 29 year old male ekg chest ex ray
Normal: It sounds perfectly normal. The jump up in heart rate with change in position is normal physiologic response. Your heart rate and blood pressure changes when you change your position to take into account the gravitational pull. Simply, this allows the body to keep flow of blood at an equilibrium. ...Read more
38/m RHR 48 laying down. 60 while sitting up. 72 while standing. Non athlete. ECG, EKG, Chest X-ray normal. Occasional PVCs. Is my RHR okay?
Probably ok: Everything is probably fine because your heart rate responds appropriately with activity. however a resting heart rate of 38 is still very low I would recommend that you see a cardiologist to make sure there are no underlying problems ...Read more
When lying down, feel pressure in top of head. Also have strong heartbeat. EKG is clear except mild micro valve prolapse. I also have anxiety. ?

I get heart palpitations bad only when sitting or laying down. Sometimes so bad it takes my breath away for a sec and is so scary. Ekg is normal. Why?
Palpitations: Would need more information and perhaps tests to try and figure it out. ...Read more
When I lay down to go to sleep, my heart beat gets faster and beats harder. It's been 2 years like this with EKG & Cholesterol normal. Why is this?
See a cardiologist: you need to see a cardiologist specialist in electro physiology of the heart which practically mean specializing in abnormal rhythm they can place on 48 hours monitor while you are continuing your regular activity as out patient and see the abnormal rhythm they can map and stimulate the heart under control safe condition to duplicate any arrhythmia and then treat it good luck ...Read more
Can u have a normal ekg and still have heart problems or does that rule out majority of them. Asking because i have chest pain radiating down my arm?
29/f. Left arm pain sometimes starting in shoulder down to hand and sometimes vice versa. Shooting\achy pain. Had EKG last week and came back good.
Pinched nerve?: You might benefit from seeing a neurologist or a physiatrist to see if you have a pinched never from neck to the fingers. Ekg is not enough to see if you had a heart attack. Try getting a multifunction cardiogram to see if you have ischemic heart disease also. ...Read more
