Can You Explain These Test Results For Me And Why

default
Posted on Sat, 4 Jul 2020
Question: Can you explain these test results for me and why the ER discharged me saying "everything is normal, but you might want to see your primary care physician to get a holter monitor" How concerned should I be and how quickly should I be trying to get a holter monitor?
My doctor is closed until the fall due to COVID and the only reason I am this concerned is because the symptoms are persisting.
Also I take Potassium Citrate, could this be the cause and NOT an actual heart problem?
Thank you--Test results are below
