Recently, my last two ekg are coming back abnormal with st elevation most likely cause by early re-polarization. My EP doc said I have early re-polarization and that it's not big deal for now.

I never had any issue with ekg piror to this and all of sudden I have ST elevation consistent on last two ekg. Since last week I have this weird cell phone vibrating feeling in my left chest causing me great deal of anxiety. I decided to pay a visit to my EP doc, a new set of ekg was perform finding same thing as previous ekg - an elevated ST .

Has anyone dealt with something similar to what I'm going through?

Thanks

I've had arrhythmias since early on, PVC and bradycardia but my AS mgmt has been so on and off and disjointed from 30 yrs of misdiagnosis i have no idea if connected. Appreciate hearing other's experience bu would definately recommend seeing a cardiologist specializing in arrhythmias and reviewing with your rhuematolgist.

Many reasons for ST elevations chief among them is a high potassium level. Your doctor is reassuring that it is benign. Did any one check your laboratory values?
