Customer Question

I’ve been having palpitations/flutters for weeks now on and off. I get palpitations then my heart starts racing. I’ve been for ecg,echo and stress test all normal but I’m still worried. I had an cardio call home with me to record the episodes when they happen. I handed it back to the cardiology department and she said it looks ok but my doctor might want to refer me back to the cardiology department. I’m worried about this as she said it was ok. My doctor still hasn’t received the results in post but I’m worried sick cause she said that to me

Thank you for that additional information.

With all the testing you have had I am very confident that your heart is OK.

You can put all your worries behind you on this issue.

So. What could be causing all of this?

It very well might be anxiety and/or stress.

You should consult with a doctor who is experienced in treating patients who are under a lot of stress. There is no need for you to continue to suffer as there are very effective therapies available to help.
