I am 41 yr old male and have been having symptoms from the heart almost all my life. I can remember beeing 16 and having my first ectopics. They ruined Lots of my life. But still i was in the millitary and har no problems other than typical ectopics after the very hard physical stuff.
Later my daughter was born. She is now 17 and ever since she was 8-9 she had bloodpressure drop when very active
She faints when very active and also when very scared for example taking blood or shots
She was been taking ecg and stress ecg and fainted during test. They called it vasovagal syncope or something
I also have problems with bloodpressure when i have Pain or if i experiemce high adrenaline. Never passed out though but feel very close.
I have had numerous ecg, holters, 24 hr ecg, ultrasound, stress ecg etc.
By random "mistake " i found an article about lqts
And spart from passing out and of course sudden death i feel it fits me so good. Concidering my heart doesnt like beeing startled. It then pounds overreacts and may go into several ectopics in series
Also experienced at least five episodes of bubbling heart going directly into tachy
The doc thought that was anxiety. I dont agree and it says it is often misdiagnosed as anxiety attacks.
There are to many commons i think.
Also.some say that an 12 Lead ecg will determine if you have it. Then people that actually have it says it is wrong and very hard to diagnose
I do also have a right binde branch block
My life is now on total pause because i worry that this is what i have. And more importantly my daughter.
Anyone chime in?
This is from a online cardiologist which looked at one of my random ecg
I passed carefully through your uploaded ECG recordings and would explain that you don't have ECG criteria of long QT syndrome.
An accepted scoring is used for investigating the probability of long QT syndrome beyond what may be concluded by the ECG findings only:
Your QTc length is only 414 ms,
- there is not a history of syncope,
- no T wave notching or alternans,
- no confirmed evidence of ventricular tachycardia or syncope,
- no family history of sudden death,
- no congenital deafness
So there is no enough scoring to confirm a high or intermediate probability of having a long QT syndrome.
Coming to this point, I would recommend you to relax and don't worry about this issue.
Your ECG confirms only a complete right bundle branch block (QRS duration is greater than 120 ms).
So it is not accurate to rely only on the ECG machine interpretation, as it usually uses rigid softwares to give some general conclusions.
It is always necessary to have the medical interpretation
