I just had an ekg done and it showed that I had a tilted heart; when they looked back at the one in 2007 it was tilted then but no one said anything. Is it dangerous, do you need surgery for this, how does a tilted heart affect you? Thank you any help you can give me.
Have you lost weight? It is fairly normal for the heart to change position when one loses a significant amount of weight. Mine has changed position since losing 80 pounds, now it's a little more tilted to the left. My doc said it was fine and due to weight loss. In any case, if it was a problem they would have let you know.
