chest pain, palpitations, neck pain, jaw pain, weakness in legs..

I have been having chest pain, palpitations, neck pain, jaw pain, weakness in legs, headache & dizziness. I have a pacemaker b/c I have complete heart block. Pacemaker is working ok. I went to ER last night...they did bloodwork, chest x-ray & EKG...kept me for overnight observation & said I was fine. I DON'T FEEL FINE!. I'm exhausted all the time....have appt w/ cardiologist that i can't get moved up b/c she's so booked. Her office tells me to go to ER is symptoms get worse WHICH I DID...then ER tells me to go back & see cardiologist. I'm also on 240 mg of Cardizem. I'm tired of feeling this way w/ no answers. Any advice would be appreciated!! Thanks!

Sorry to hear that you do not feel well. Perhaps a visit with your primary care physician would be helpful. The results of the recent ER visit should reassure you that perhaps there may be nothing acutely wrong with your heart that requires hospitalization or emergent care. It also may be possible that your neck pain, jaw pain, leg weakness, headaches, and dizziness, may not be related to your heart. While you wait to see your cardiolgist, your doctor may be able to give careful consideration to other possible causes of your collection of symptoms.

My dr already did bloodwork & checked my thyroid & cholesterol--all normal. I'm upset that my cardiologist's office refuses to see my any sooner! I really don't know what else to do
