Expert:  KemalG replied 8 days ago.

ECG looks irregular and erratic but that could be due to moving a lot and may not represent your true ECG.

Do you have any chest pain, other pain, breathing difficulties, sweating, dizziness, cough, or other symptoms?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I have taken a few ecgs and was staying very still while doing it, please check this one too.
Along side I have experiencing a bit of shortness of breath, a few cough and pain on my left arm but that was there over a week now.

Are you sending another ECG?

Are you sure that you were sitting still when checking your ECG today? The previous ECGs look much better but the ones from today appear quite erratic.

Expert:  KemalG replied 8 days ago.

We need to make a decision based on your symptoms; so if you have any palpitations plus some breathlessness, it is better to go to A+E for full assessment and proper ECG.

If you feel well in yourself, you can wait and speak to your GP tomorrow.

at first I was slouching on the sofa and I thought it was due to that, then I got up and sat straight and did the second and more ecg, it was very erratic still
Expert:  KemalG replied 8 days ago.

You can repeat your ECGs a few more times and try to remain as still as possible and if they are still erratic and you have symptoms, you should go to A+E for full assessment.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Ok, I'll do that, thank you.
Expert:  KemalG replied 8 days ago.

You are most welcome.
