Help understanding EKG

So I was in the hospital the other day with feeling really faint and heart skips, as I have been having many PVC's per day (thousands), lots of couplets per day (maybe 30 lately), my first 4-5 beat run of nsvt.  My doctors and cardio tell me it's all benign, my recent ECHO of my heart showed completely normal with an EF of 60%.

My EKG was on me for 2.5 hours, and it reads

SINUS RHYTHM (normal P axis, Vrate 50-99)
VENTRICULAR PREMATURE COMPLEX (V Complex w/ short R-R interval)
BORDERLINE RIGHT AXIS DEVIATION (QRS AXIS 90, 99)
Borderline Q waves, probably normal variation.
Minimal ST depression, inferior leads ST <-0.03mV

RATE 99 B/min
PR 102/ms
QRSD 88ms
QT 264ms
QTc 467ms

AXIS
P 73 degree
QRS 97 deg
T deg



The day before my EKG said:

*Normal sinus rhythm with sinus arrythmia and short PR
*Nonspecific ST abnormality
*Rightward axis (P-QRS axes) 68 degrees 94 degrees 20 degrees
Qt/QTc 0.346/ 0.474s


The doctor said both of these EKG's were completely normal.
Is this true?

I can't comment about the details, all I can say is a report by a cardiologist has to believed.  Doesn't make your symptoms go away or make them less real to you.  My report was PCA's/PVC's that are benign, all other tests negative.  Episodes still scare the heck out of me and I have been to ER several times only to be sent home two hours later. My motto is trust but verify.  second opinions are always available.

It is most probably results of automated EKG interpretator (sort like a EKG google translator ), so i guess you should believe your human - your doctor cause automated intrepretator is not accurate.
