This is my first post and I am concerned.
I had my first appointment with a cardiologist a couple of weeks ago which included an ecg as I have been having daily palpitations. Nothing was mentioned about the ecg I had at my GPs and was told it was normal.
The cardiologist thought the palpitations were benign but would do a 48 hr monitor. I received a copy of the letter he sent to my GP which stated ecg was normal, however I had a slightly prolonged QTc of 503, which in the meantime I should be put on beta blockers until the 48 hr monitor can be looked at.
Of course I googled prolonged QTc and got quite scared.
I wish he had mentioned it during the appointment so I could have had it explained.
Can anyone share their experiences or offer any advice?
