17 yr old palpitations... ECG, echo and stress test did not show any abnormalities. Does this rule out HCM, ARVD etc?. P.S Now doing holter monitor...

In brief: You're good

Glad you got to read up.
The hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and ARVD are ruled out by a competent echo. Lots of folks have palpitations -- catch a run on Holter and you will know the type. If you do not get short of breath, and there are five or fewer per minute, they are usually harmless. Taking up hard-core aerobic fitness can help this and make you happier in the process.
