PR int: 22ms
QRS dur: 115ms QT/QTc:416/412ms

I was wondering what all this means? I was told by a doctor that it wasn't bad but it wasn't great. I am experiencing some symptoms.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

I carefully reviewed you uploaded ECG recording and would explain that there is nothing to worry about.

An incomplete bundle branch block is present and it's necessary to investigate any underlying health issue in this regard.

Nevertheless, an incomplete bundle branch block may be present also in an apparently normal individual.

It would be helpful to review your recent symptoms or complaints. In addition, cardiac ultrasound test iwould be recommended.

Hope to have been helpful!

Please, let me know in case of any further questions!

Kind regards,

My current symptoms are chest pressure when laying down and unable to take deep breaths. I've been sleeping with elevated legs in order to get rest but sleeping on my side makes me experience heart palpitations. Heart rate remains around 62. Could that be due to heart issues? Costochondritis?

I have a docs appointment coming up with my primary care doctor and another with a cardiologist to make sure everything is okay.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again!

Your symptoms are not suggestive of any specific cardiac issue. Anyway, a cardiac ultrasound would help examine your heart function and structure and put your mind to peace. Your heart rate values are normal.

A lung issue can not be excluded either, considering the shortness of breathing. Regarding costochondritis, it usually causes chest pain during deep breathing or body movements. You do not refer any chest pain.

Hope you will find this information helpful!

Kind regards,
Dr. Iliri
