I recently had a ECG done vent rate at 103 pr at 190 ms, qrs 96 ms, qt/qtc 360/471 ms, p-r-t axes 49-122-37 was referred due to high heart rate of 120 after 20-30 min rest period blood pressure 118/76 they mentioned the word tachycardia. have endured this recurring chest pain regularly it now spreads up to my lower front left side of neck. How concerned should I be is the VA treating me correctly or should I seek another opinion? Are the test results fine?
It is impossible to give you an accurate diagnosis over the internet without actually meeting you and looking at your test results but I can give you some general pointers.
The word tachycardia refers to a high heart rate. Generally a resting heart rate >100 is considered as tachycardia but that is an arbitrary cut point.
I dont know what your cardiac risk factors are but depending on those you should be worked up for coronary artery disease or blockages in your coronary artery.
Talk to your doctors about a stress test.
Your EKG is not particularly abnormal besides a borderline high heart rate, which does not explain your symptoms entirely.
I would advise you to seek another opinion on your symptoms as additional work up is probably needed.
Hope that helps
