I am a 26-year-old female with a weight of 114 pounds and height of 5' 4". I just want to ask what could be the possible diagnosis for my heart because I experience strong palpitations. My 2D echo says I am normal and the ECG results are the same. What could be the other findings regarding my situation?
I have seen the attachment (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Such episodic palpitations may be due to paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT), which occur and spontaneously resolve. They are not present every time so they may not be captured on regular ECG (electrocardiography) strip. Two things can be done, ECG done at the time you have palpitations and Holter monitoring or even longer term monitoring. SVT is not a life-threatening condition but sometimes symptoms of palpitations are troublesome. Yes, there may be other possibilities such as paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, or even anxiety. SVT is common in young females. Treatment is with medicines and if still not controlled then electrophysiological study and catheter ablation. First, I would advise you to have ECG at the time of palpitations or 24 to 48 hours Holter monitoring or loop recording depending upon the frequency of symptoms. I hope this helps.
