Avatar m tn tested him for strep and decided it was Scarlet fever, possibly Rheumatic fever. With his heart murmur we have been going through those procedures as well. His knee started working w/in a week and then he was fine. Periodically his foot will hurt at a certain spot or different spots in his body. He was clear of strep as of Nov 6th and then Jan 15 realized he got it again. NO signs at all except for a weird feeling in the top of his foot. I only took him to the Dr.
Avatar f tn Inverted T-waves vcan be the result of many things, some inverted T-Waves are normal. The fact that your grandfather died so young, would make me question if he actually had Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and he died as a result of a cardiac arrhythmia. HCM can cause all of the symptoms you have described as well as causing inverted T-Waves. It is the depth of the inversion and the height of the QRS Complex that would be important. Let us know how your stress echo turns out.

Avatar f tn I don't know what they mean by abnormal QRS based on the settings in the machine? An abnormal QRS could have many underlying causes including heart block.

He also asked me if I was ever diagnosed with rheumatic fever.
