just wondered if anyone knows what a "deviating waveform" means??
I am pregnant and have been feeling unwell for some time even before being pregnant. I keep having palpitations, dizziness, breathing problems, and near collapses.
My GP gave me a home ECG monitor to use when i feel "funny" and it keeps showing tachycardia, irregular heart rate and now a Deviating Waveform??
does anyone have any ideas what this could all mean?
As pregnancy and the thought of heart problems are a bit worrying
thanks for any help please xx
Do I read correctly, you are self administering an EKG and getting a "deviating waveform" report? If yes, I'd say the source my be operator error as likely as a true heart condition. Does it occur every time you run an EKG? Have you discussed with your doctor, and/or is there a recording being maintained so that your doctor can look a the waveform?
As you have had health problems prior to becoming pregnant it seems reasonable to suspect the underlying problem isn't related to being pregnant. Were you under any treatment (doctor's care) for palps, dizziness and breathing problems... near collapse, following a dizzy spell, or just all of a sudden?
