Hi would a stress test pick up an arrhythmia of the heart?

Hello Sophia! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

No it will not

In-fact the test to pick an arrhythmia is an ECG and 24 Hour Holter monitoring

Stress test mainly looks for cardiac ischemia under stressful condition

I’ve been getting a feeling in my chest lately. It feels like butterfly’s like my chest is going up and down like the feeling you get when your scared. I’m just worried about this. My ecg,echo and stress test were normal

So this means that no issue of cardiac ischemia

If your symptoms are bothering you a lot you can ask for a Holter study

Please do let me know if you have any other question
