Customer Question

I am currently seeing a cardiologist doctor but I have not had any test yet. I have recently been having some heart palpitations and flutters and sometimes a little bit a tightening in my chest. And sometimes, I feel like my heart beat is a little bit fast. Is this serious and what could be the cause for my symptoms?

I am wondering if a general stress test with holter monitor test and an echocardiogram would help to determine what I have and what kind of symptoms I am experiencing?

I do not do phone calls.
Yes, a holter monitor is the next indicated test.
Your regular doctor can order this.
Echo is less useful.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
