Hi all! I recently had an ekg done and the Dr. Told me everything looked good but when I get a copy of the record it reads that there was a notable left axis deviation. Anyone know what might cause this or have the same???

I’ve just had a look at this again to refresh my memory and yes, I’m fairly sure I have that. Although I have found no written notes in my medical records to support this, though I did look at my record printouts and analysed as much of the detail as I could understand and this is when I discovered it.
I kept getting back ‘Abnormal ECG’ printouts that said ‘Possible Anterior Infarct’ and (typical of me) I needed to know more, to understand what was going on.
I watched several of those medical training videos on YouTube (and further confirmed the facts on other websites). There’s a representative circular dial and your results, within certain limits, show the problem.
I can’t remember the full detail now, as it’s a few months ago that I started looking at it (then I got distracted with The Driscoll Theory!) so I never got much further than that.

Thank you! In addition, I just requested my echo report from 2 years ago for the geneticist office and I see that though the Dr. Told me the echo was normal, it states I have tricuspid regurgitation and a slightly reduced cardiac ejection fraction : /June 18, 2012 at 4:28 pm #2449MJParticipant
Hi there. I had a Right Axis Deviation on my EKG. They did a chest x-ray to look at my lungs to see if that was the cause, but it came back normal. No further investigation was done. I have EDS & POTS.

I have EDS. Dysautonomia, undiagnosed but strongly suspected by me (the one who lives within the ‘shell’). My echo:
1. Mild diastolic relaxation impairment
2. Global hypokinesis
3. LV function is severely depressed, ejection fraction 25-29%
4. RV systolic pressure 10mmHg (whatever that means, probably normal)
5. Mild mitral regurgitation
6. Mild tricuspid regurgitation
Then thoracic MRI, prescribed by cardiologist raised my EF as high as 52%.
Holter monitor showed: random arrythmias, tachycardia, brachycardia. I was told that my heart is stable and results weren’t reviewed with me. My genetic doctor says that regardless of whether or not my heart is stable, I still have cardiomyopathy as well as regurgitations. So many other problems that I’m basically ‘chasing my tail’.
Are these heart problems related to EDS? Anyway, I guess this is diff from left axis deviation? Just thought I’d compare notes. 🙂
