Possible AV node arythmia

Ive been through some tests, but generally doctors havent been very helpfull.

I was taken to ER with pounding heart, ekg read junctional rhytm. I also have narrow qrs almost every time I have chest pain.

Is this indicative of some AVNRT or AVRT, and is it serious. How can I tell and what are the treatments.

I can tell you what it's not.  AVRT is not a junctional rhythm.  AVNRT can be a junctiona rhythm.  I would suggest by that you Google Junctional Rhythms for more detail.

The only way to know for sure is to catch it on a monitor.  Have you had a 30 day to try and catch the start and stop of it?  If not push to get one so you can know for sure what is going on.
