It may be more diplomatic to reveal your "Best Answer" faux pas in a private message to Tom, that way it lessens the likelihood that the other person may be embarrassed or slighted. Not everyone is thin skinned, but some are.
2 SVE or STE?
SVE I would guess is a Supra Ventricular Ectopic, Supra meaning above, Supra Ventricular meaning it came from above the Ventricles, i.e. the top of your heart where normal beats originate from. The VE would be a Ventricular Ectopic. You had one. I had six thousand on my last Holter, probably more at other times, and Michellepetkus (sp?) has had as many as 20,000. In that sense, you're in good shape. Pain on lifting sounds musculosketal, not seeing that related to your heart.
At your age, you can do good for yourself by watching your diet, exercising modestly, not smoking, limiting your alcohol. Keep in touch with your doctor if you have any more concerns, but you have good reason to believe you're in good shape.
I accidentally clicked Best Answer, It would of gone to you!! :)
thanks for replying.
I don't think I'm suffering from anxiety, I seem to get symptoms at the worst time when I'm not even thinking about it. Then sometimes depending how bad they are i either push on with what I'm doing other times I have to stop and sit down for a second (sometimes its just pounding/palpations in the chest or times i get really the palpations, dizzy, sweaty and short of breath) Thats when i do start freaking out and when I run up the stairs and I'm breathing fast.
I did say to the doctor that its was the worst time to get the monitor cause i worked all night (sitting down) and slept most the day. He told me i was too young anyway! and it should be ok.
Ive put it off for over a year now and hoping it would go away.
Thank you again.
How do you feel immediately prior to having these palpatations? Do you think you're feeling anxious at the time? You have to be your own advocate in the face of some shortsighted physicians. You may have some kind of concealed condition that only reveals itself when the cardiac anomaly occurs. I the physician passes it off as "anxiety", which is seemingly the #1 diagnosis today, and you're feeling calm and relaxed when it occurs, you have to tell him so. If you felt nothing during the 24 hours you wore the Holter, did you tell him so?
There are a number of other things you can try. A Holter just records a 24 hour slice of you life. Another option is a 30 day recorder, a simple 2 leaded device that you can wear while doing anything except showering. It's small enough that you and wearing it running, sleeping, whatever. You stand a much greater chance of something happening when you get a larger slice of your life. A Stress Echo will look at your heart's structure immediately following high physical stress. They will also examine your EKG while on the treadmill. Basically, if YOU don't think you are suffering from anxiety, then you need to stick up for yourself.
