    This happened to me only one time. It was due to the fact that throughout the test I was moving and I tried to calm down but I couldn't. I kept telling myself to relax and when I would, my thoughts would race and I'd start to panic. The doctor told me I had tachycardia but it was just for the visit. I've been okay and had one recently and it was fine. Still get it checked out

      Thanks for that. Had abnormal ecg but panic was off the scale! Heart was missing beats. Two weeks later had an echocardiogram. Technician said heart structure and function seemed fine. Then treadmill test. Didn't do too well with that cos have asthma n copd as well as panic! Also 24 hr holter monitor. Tmrw is to find out results of those with gp. If I can't calm down I'm going to need a doctor! It's the pits! I believe it's all anxiety related. It's a terrible thing to live with. Thank you so much for your reply. Stay well.
