Info on heart attacks

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.

My May 2013 EKG: (it's in my photos)

Vent Rate:         64  
PR                    152
QRSD               94
QT/QTc             410/419  
P/QRS/T Axes   23/29/26

Sinus Rhythm
Cannot rule out Anterior Myocardial Infarction, age undetermined (V4)
Low QRS Voltage in Chest leads
*abnormal ecg*

someone else gave me some info but I would love to hear something from HD patients also; does any of this sound like what you've gone through?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

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.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
