Monitor results

My heart monitor results came back and apparently about 1% of the time, one of the ventricles in my heart beats a little early. This seems to coordinate with the fluttering that I have experienced.

So what does that mean? For now, it's something I have to live with. It's not life threatening and the doctor said that if I said, "Thanks for the info. I don't want to do anything." that she wouldn't argue. That said, if it were her, she'd go to a cardiologist and see how they can further analyze the monitor data and possibly do further testing.

So the latter is the route I'm going to take. The fluttering isn't uncomfortable, but it is annoying and not normal, so I'd like to resolve it positively instead of learning to live with it.

That's the latest. Some news, but not much really. It doesn't impact my workouts, playing softball or drinking. :-) So for now, it's on with my life.

That sounds like good news. I have been waiting to see the words "not life threatening."

I think you're wise to take the proactive approach. Good luck.

Anything having to do with the heart seems worth further investigation to me as well.
