I know what questions to ask or what to do for arrhythmia's but not what tests and questions I should ask about a possible heart attack or heart disease.
What tips; suggestions; tests should I make sure I have? hopefully it's a false reading on my EKG.
On top of dealing with HOCM (have an ICD) fainting, arrhythmia's and brady/tachycardia I've been feeling pretty crappy. Extreme fatigue, different types of chest pain, major headaches more than normal migraines. plus my primary found a new murmur she hasn't heard in the past year
She sent me to a new cardiologist who did an EKG and checkup and is having me do testing and go to the EP in his office. I had my last EKG 9/28/2012 so they can narrow it down if it was a MI.
Myocardial infarction can cause arrhythmias. As the EKG is inconclusive, you may need further testing with nuclear scan, coronary angiography and sometimes an ECHO to make or exclude a diagnosis of myocardial infarction. So, based on the findings further therapy can be planned. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.
