Hello all, first and foremost thank you for your time. The results are as follows; The left ventricular size is mildly enlarged. Right ventricular size is normal. Left ventricular wall motion is normal. Rest and stress SPECT images show a MEDIUM TO LARGE SIZE AREA OF MODERATE TO SEVERE FIXED PERFUSION DEFECT WITHOUT ANY REVERSIBILITY IN THE INFERIOR MYCOARDIUM with normal wall motion consisitent with diaphragmatic attenuation. No evidence of inducible ischemia.
During the follow up appointment all I was told was that my stress test was normal. However if I knew the actual impression I would have asked right away.
Back story; I'm 26, male, never a smoker/drinker. Started experiencing very strong heart contractions however slow. Turns out I was in sinus arrhythmia. Echo was normal, ZIO heart monitor for 7 days showed one run of 7 beats VTACH, (follow up with EP doctor next month) however normal otherwise. I was caffeine free while wearing the ZIO FYI. Never any chest pain, just palpitations. I have been heavily drinking caffeine for the last 4 years (college, night shift... maybe 300-500mg caffeine every other day or so, sometimes daily. I have since cut out all caffeine aside a diet soda once per day. I've only had 1 palpitation in the last week, I feel much better overall. Guarantee the caffeine was the culprit(majority) for the palpitations. I was started on metoprolol 25mg daily .
Again, thank you for any feedback provided. I truly appreciate. Going through this is very nerve wracking.
