My Scary Heartbeat

My Scary Heartbeat ECG testSince last week, I have noticed that my heartbeat is beating irregularly. It felt like I am riding a Ferris wheel while my heartbeat slows down. I did not bother to acknowledge it last week but it happened again yesterday morning. I am scared and frightened of my condition that it might lead to something serious. My dad has a case of heart disease and I know I am predisposed of it.

I know I have to think positive since I live healthy. I eat right, I walk a lot everyday and I swim once a week The only bad thing that I do is that I stay up late everyday, 12mn to 1 A.M. actually. That habit I have to break.

Yesterday while at work, I called on the clinics my employer is accredited at. Most of those that I have called don’t have an ECG test. Thank God, a clinic in Boon Lay has an ECG. After work, I went straight to Jurong Point where the said clinic is located. Jurong Point by the way looks nice and it has some similarity with the Ayala malls in the Philippines.

I registered in the clinic and waited for my turn. I told the doctor what I have been feeling and he directed me to have an ECG. This is my first time to have an ECG so I am quite scared of what will happen. As seen in the diagram, the nurse placed some gadgets on my chest, hands and ankles. It took us quite a while since the suction on my chest keeps on falling off.

After the ECG, I went back to the doctor to have my ECG test reading. According to the doctor, there’s nothing wrong with my heart. He then suggested that I go straight to the hospital to see a cardiologist. They even gave me a letter that I can give to the hospital and to my employer. I have then decided to just have my dinner after that and go home. On my way home, I opened the letter and I was smirking to read that the doctor indicated in the letter that my ECG is just fine and I was anxious, so please accommodate me. I am relieved that my ECG is just fine and the reason why I feel weak yesterday because I worried a lot.
