Hi doctor,

Recently, I did an ECG. The doctor examined me and told me that I have a mild blockage. Please suggest.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity). There is sinus bradycardia with a heart rate of 55 to 60 beats per minute, with a right bundle branch block along with left axis deviation. There are no significant ST-T abnormalities seen. It can also due to age or hypertension-related change. It needs evaluation and echo (echocardiogram) to rule out the possibility of coronary artery disease. So, you should undergo echo, and if it is normal, then stress test like stress thallium or CT coronary angiography can be done to rule out the possibility of structural heart disease. Also, do a thyroid profile.

Thank you doctor,

Do I require immediate examination? Can I do these tests after three to four days?

If you do not have any symptoms like chest pain or heaviness, shortness of breath, and dizziness, then there is nothing urgent, and it can be done in a week or two.
