For anyone in a health/medical field or has just had experience with this:|
If I had a normal echocardiogram result, does that mean A-Fib (atrial fibrillation) has been ruled out?
I have been having very strong heart palpitations intermittently for several months. I've never been able to record one on a Holter monitor, but I did have an echocardiogram done recently. The results were said to be normal. I know that rules out things like mitral valve prolapse, but I'm worried about atrial fibrilation because a) my father has it and b) the heart palpitations continue to return.
(Yes, I have an appointment with my cardiologist, but it isn't for another month. Sigh.)
