As a normal procedure I have an ECG done yearly to monitor my heart due to a successful catherer ablation done in 2001.....I have never had episodes of palpitations! Thank God!!
My family doctor just did a ECG and the results were the following
Poor R Wave Progression V2-V4
PROBABLE NORMAL VARIANT
He said the ECG showed nothing to be concerned about.....but the word "borderline" and poor R waves puzzled me!!!
Please advise me as your opinion is very important to me. Thank you.
Poor R wave progression means that leads on your chest could have been misplaced which is probably the most likely thing that produced this result. Likely your ECG is normal. Other causes of poor R-wave progression include left ventricular hypertrophy and chronic lung disease.
I went for a complete blood test on 10.10.2008 and found that the C Reactive Protein
showed my result to be 8. Today I went for a review test, that after a lapse of 1 month and the level has dwindled to 6. The Pathologist told me that I am at a high risk of a Heart Attack as the level should be 2 and below. This worries me. Could you please advice.
