hi so i posted a question here several months ago about a incident that occurred when i was 17. i had overdosed on ecstasy and felt like i had a heart attack but didn't go to hospital in fear of my parents and repercussions and just toughed it out. Little did i know at the time the consequences that would follow.. so now im 20 years old with a variety of symptoms which i don't know if they are from the accident or not so im hoping someone can help me figure this out. i had a ekg done when i was 18 and the guy said he saw nothing but i don't believe he looked thoroughly because i felt as if i was going it faint, couldn't breath, and my chest felt odd. so i got a copy of the results and i was hoping if someone could tell me what they thought of it and if taking aspirin would alter the results of my ekg. please and thank you. also can someone explain what the numbers mean on the paper it says arrhythmia and such.

Although the quality of the image is suboptimal, grossly it appears as a normal ECG with some non-specific changes. Translation: there does not appear to be any significant findings that would be worrisome. It is unclear what is the cause of your current symptoms, but if they persist or continue to cause concern, I would recommend having a physician evaluate you so a careful history and phyiscal examination can take place. I would also urge you to continue your abstinence from ilicit drug use due to the potential health consequences that can occur. .
To me, it sounds like your cardiac symptoms may be anxiety driven which I experience as well. Seeing a doctor and getting reassurance you are OK can help. Stay away from recreational drugs as these can worsen your anxiety and make matters worse. Good luck!
