I have posted my EKG in "my pictures" and my Test results in "my journal" to view.
1.) What test would be done other than an EKG to "confirm" a mobitz ll block?
2.) Can you have a mobitz ll block "without" having low blood pressure?
3.) If you had all the test in 2006, could this develop in just 2 years, and what %of how often an EKG could be wrong on this?
4.) What questions could I ask my Dr. about on this.
For about the last week the symptoms I've been having seem to be more of a bother to me.
My heart beat I am very aware of in my chest and throat. My chest sorta feels sunken in. (hard to explain).
I get little pains in my chest about every 10-20 min. My breathing and voice are sorta shaky at times. When I talk my voice at times will leave me, until I take a breath. This is really bad for 1-3 days after just cutting the grass. It also seems to make me cough. Like a dry gaggy cough. ha ha, sorry don't know how else to word it. My BP is controlled by meds and is usually ~115/74 HR 72. After 5 minutes or less of normal daily work around the house it will jump to ~155/94 HR 128 or just standing up. I also get lightheaded easy but that is sorta normal for me. I have most of the "commercial call 911 signs" on a daily bases. I've never went because they are sorta just part of my daily life and I figured the signs were not bad enough. In Feb. I got scared for the 1st time. To much to list here. All of my records are list though as I said in Test results in my journal. I have a recheck appt. in 2 months for my BP. Is there anything I should ask about. I thought of calling my cardiologist from 2006 but, don't want to upset my regular Dr.
Any information would be great and I would just be ticked pink if you could answer questions 1-3 for me.
Thank you very much, Sincerely;
II noticed that you are a cardiologist. Did you happen to look at the EKG?
I would really like to hear your opinion of the (2) 2008 ekgs in my photos on here.
My Dr. has never told me about any of my EKGs being abnormal.
I found out by requesting my medical records. I'm going next week to ask her about them and also to ask for a referral for an apt. with my cardiologist due to the fact my symptoms have been getting alot worse over the last 2 1/2 months. In my records she never mentioned anything about the EKGs in her notes. I told her about the interatrial septal aneurysm that was found in 2006 and that the size wasn't to bad (1cm septal thickness) and that there was no communication between the 2 sides and I was told by the cardiologist it was safe. She's good and I like her but; The fact that I had to tell her instead of her telling me anything makes me think that maybe cardiology is just not her thing. I like her and don't want to upset her, but, I just can't get the answers. I thought about just calling the cardiologist but don't want to go over her; nevertheless, I do have my records if I have to. The pains are interfering to much in my life.
If you could look at them I would really appreciate your comment.
Hi. I know this is going to sound crazy; but, I have to ask.
Since Feb. I had one really bad attack and was having alot of issues with chest pains, (severe and mild ones every few seconds/ minutes), shortness of breath to the point of breathlessness where I could not finish a sentence with my voice gone until I took a breath, very tired after the slightest of activities. I requested my medical reports due to this and a old issue in Feb. with my Dr. that I feel pretty stupid about now.
On my reports I had asked alot of questions about a Mobitz ll block on here.
I finally went to the doctor and she done alot of blood work. (results pending) I'm expecting them to all be well except for the hsCRP in which is usually high. I felt alot better several days "before" going to her. She done an EKG and it was one of my best ones. It only showed the poss. old infarction and a incomplete RBBB. YA. She looked at the old EKG and said I should have a total cardio workup. I'm afraid that since I feel better and better each day that the Echocardiogram and SPECT stress test is going to be a big waste of time on everyone's part and money on mine. With the symptoms all going away......I just don't know if it's worth it?
Should I hold off on these test to see if the symptoms come back and then go?
I just don't know if they would be able to tell now that I'm not symptomatic?
I don't know if I'll get an answer on here or not. I figure if I wait until Monday I should know better if the problem is going to come back or not before I call my Dr.s office to cancel or not.
