I had an EKG done today after having some heart palpitations & all that come about was RSR in V1, can this explain dizziness & heart flutters?

If u r dizzy and/ or palpiations, the yield on plain ECG is only good if u had ur sxs at that time. A normal resting ECG bodes well for u, but u need an even monitor or a holter monitor to evaluate for arrhythmia, if any. See a cardiologist. ...Read more
