Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

I'm here. Then you need another one and an echo if you haven't had one

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Iv had an echo last week everythink is perfect , no abnormalities, I rarely get this flutter so the monitor is hard to catch it,. Could this be long qt syndrome . Iv no family history of heart problems what so ever.. my qt intervil is .365 or 3. Something anyway and the top cardiologist said all my ecgs have shown no indication of anything even on my stress test for 18 minutes...
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
No this is nothing. Some of those tests would have detected it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay so in your professional opinion what do you think it could be, it can last up to a minute sometimes, as I said only with exercise really, never fainted or feel dizzy when occurring, I'm very scared and stops me from exercising .
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
I think it is PVCs
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay should I worrie, can these be dangerous as it seems like a irregular pattern
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
No. I wouldn't worry
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm still very worried that I have some sort of arrhythmia or this qt syndrome as I get the fluttering badly when exercising or when surprised , what other smtests can I get to diagnose other than holter and tests if already done
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
