Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,
quite simple really
you need to find out the result of the event monitor
the device that you pressed when you felt the skipped beats
you ARE young and healthy
and if you have ahad not fainting episodes especially during PT then these are likely benign palpitations
and extremely unlikely to be anything dangerous
but knowing the military medical system
things sometimes DO get missed
or not reported
so asking for the cardiologist or your doctor to tell you the results of the heart monitor is what you need to do next
Is there any chance the Cardiologist may still have those test result? It was quite some time ago after all haha
was it before the military?
I originally had the test done in early 2011. No, it was done during active duty. I was referred out in town to a civilian since the clinic did not have a Cardiologist there.
then you simply need to make a written request of the civilian cardiolgist
may be ablet o simply call them
and get the faxed rsults to you
but you will want to take them to your primary physician to mak sure that you understand what they mean
they will probably be normal
Okay, I will make sure to do that.
but it may be confusing to read the report.
from the cardiologist without another doctor to interpret them.
DO you have any suggestions as to how I can help reduce the amount of palpitations I experience?
not without knowing why you have them
have you had your thyroid checked/
and do you take any energey supplements?
drink energey drinks?
No energy drinks, supplements, soda, or coffee.
I understand. Seems it all hinges on getting the heart monitor results then.
No, I have not had my thyroid checked to my knowledge
that is indeed the case......
I might ask that of your doctor
as a high functioning thyroid
can cause palpitations especially in young and healthy patients
so it's worth a atry
and getting that result will be the other part
do you have any more questions for me?
Definitely. I'll make sure to bring that up as well.
Well, considering the limited amount of info we have right now, do you recommend I still continue doing PT?
No sir, NAvy
no reason not to
danger signs of palpitations
are passing out
and developing shortness of breath and chest pain with exertion
Awesome, sounds good.
