so I've been getting chest flutter-like feelings in my chest since I was about 14 years old. I am 20 years old now and currently attend Tulane University. I went to my doctor in November for a checkup and told her about these chest flutters and she said that she heard a murmur. She decided to give me a echo cardiogram and i was told everything came back normal. About a month going after playing volleyball, I was driving and it felt like my heart was pounding out of my chest all of a sudden. I drove to the ER and they did blood work, EKG, and a chest X-ray and told me everything was normal.
I then went to a cardiologists and he told me he may have seen evidence of WPW syndrome on my EKG reading. I then went to get two more opinions and both other cardiologists said they do not see that evidence and one of them placed me on a 30 day event monitor. I press a button when I feel a symptom and I get called from his office if they see anything serious. Ive had the pounding heart rate while on it (which my parents think is anxiety) and I have not gotten a call. I am now on day 29/30 of the event monitor. So far I've gotten 3 chest x-rays, an echo cardiogram last November, blood work, and many EKGs. Could my arteries have been blocked from November to now? I get dizzy throughout the day and get chest flutters daily. Should I be this worried? I am constantly fearing for my life daily.
Thanks for reading.
