    Hi: If your most recent echocardiogram and nuclear stress test results were normal, then the finding of right ventricular conduction delay (RVCD) is likely benign, though continuing and/or new symptom(s) can sure make one feel otherwise, which thus warrants further investigation, until 100% completely satisfied/confident with the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.

    The normal stress test and echocardiogram argue in favor of a structurally normal heart, despite the condution delay. I would imagine that it's less likely that your symptoms are cardiac, but they are still worth pursuing with your doctor. Take care.
