My 9 year old son was getting an ECG done because our doctor noticed a heart murmur on an examination. I took him to the doctor because he seemed to be getting tired more often, having headaches, hand tremors and thirsty. He had one ECG done but I didn't get the results back yet when the doctor ordered an ECHO to look for a hole in his heart and the cardiologist did a second ECG and I noticed on the top that it said Borderline Long QT. What exactly does that mean? I have heard of Long QT Syndrome and that is scaring me. Please help with any info.
