RBBB

I went to the doctor for palpitations..the EKG showed RBBB...my EKG from two years ago did not have this...what further tests do I need? My primary wants a thalium stress, but my insurance doesn't cover..is there another test, or should I have it done anyway? I am currently on inderol (5mg)per day to control the palpitations..42..male..thanks..

Dear kelly,

A new onset right bundle branch block (RBBB) could indicate some heart blockages and this is why your doctor ordered the thallium stress.  I would let your doctor know the insurance situation and see if he has any other suggestions.  Is is possible your insurance will pay for a heart cath?

This morning I started having pain between the shoulder blades.  My PATs, PVCs, and microspams are under control with meds.  I also have RBBB; could this cause the pain between the shoulder blades -- the pain resides after nitro spray, but comes back later.  Thanks.

I started having pain between my shoulder blades this morning that were eleviated with Nitro spray, but later came back.  I have RBBB also, could this be the cause?  I know it isn't dangerous because it is only a 1st degree RBBB.  I also have PATs, PCVs, and microvascular spasms (all under control with meds).  Thanks
