    Did you know that palpitation can be the cause of a irregular heartbeat.

    Maybe on the day you went for your ECG you where a little anxious. You will be going to see the cardiologist so they can monitor your heartbeat and find out what is causing it....Even if they think it anxiety related,they won't want to take any chances and will want you to have all the relevant test just to rule everything else out.

    Please try to stay calm. I've had my blood pressure taken twice in one day and one time it was perfect and another time it was sky high.

      Lol a little bit of what you fancy,does you good so they say.

      Emma honestly..if it was anything he was totally worried about,you wouldn't be having to wait for your appointment,you would of been sent for test or whatever and seen to right away. When it comes to your heart,they have to take it seriously.

      I'm thinking there was a slight irregularity and they just want it checked out.

      Sometimes we don't even feel very anxious but it's still all going on for our little minds and tickers. I'm sure it's anxiety related xx
