Hi doctor,

I have occasional chest pain and discomfort in the chest. This discomfort goes away while walking and comes back while resting. ECG values are HR - 101, P-R 101 ms, R-R 592 ms, and QT/QTc 284/369 ms.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

The ECG report is within normal (attachment removed to protect patient identity). The fact that you are overweight alone can cause you chest discomfort. I advise you to lose weight. Engage in regular cardio exercises three times a week and eat healthily. You will be fine. Your discomfort will get better as you lose more weight.

Best regards.
