I went to doctors because I thought I had diabetes because i was experiencing numbness and tingling on my fingers. Well my blood test came back normal no diabetes, my cholesterol was normal level and BP was good, the Medical asst suggested lets just do a physical so she grabs this old EKG machine and has me lie on my back.
Well the machine was having a hard time reading due to the sticky's she kept having to undo them and replace them and after 3 tries of not being able to get the EKG to work, her other medical asst came in and tried and she got it to work and told me to lie still buy I was stressed and my back was hurting from lying down, well the reading took like only a few seconds and came back with this:
1.) Sinus Rhythm
2.) Left Anterior Fascicular Block
3.) ARTIFACT PRESENT
4.) ** abnormal ECG ***
So the doctor tells me it could be benign or could not be but i have to see a cardiologist and the authorization to see him can take about 3 weeks!!! I told the Dr. I never had issues with my heart and no one in my family does either and my BP and cholesterol levels were good and no diabetes.
Well the doctor replies maybe you were born with a bad heart!! huh??? why did the reading not come out on my EKG last year then? or any other year in the multiple EKG's I have done over the 57 years of my life never a bad reading?
Can someone please help me with making sense of this? I am hoping the EKG was a False Reading, can anyone tell me if this is possible? i been freaked out all day i been crying and depressed and thinking I am going to die and I have 4 boys and a beautiful lady by my side, can someone please help me make sense of this. thank You
