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

Is it likely i could have myocarditis even with clear ECG symptoms med fever and chronic fatigue for 4 days. waiting to get results back from bloods?
Often it does ..: Typically there ARE changes on the electrocardiogram in myocarditis: diffuse T wave inversions and saddle-shaped ST segment elevations. Other common blood tests including C-reactive protein, sed rate, & myocardial damage markers may be positive. The only 100% accurate diagnostic test of myocarditis is a myocardial biopsy--biopsy of the heart lining and muscle done via angiography. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
