Why do you see a cardiologist on routine basis? Do you have complaints or did you have heart issues before?
Sorry, please allow me to clarify; I went to my general doctor for my year physical examination, which did not reveal any issues. At that time I mentioned to my doctor that I wanted to increase my running work-out as I was planning to start training for a marathon in the summer. This came from me, and told my doctor that at my age I would feel better seeing a cardiologist, and having some tests done as some of fellow-runners do; she didn't feel it was necessary, but ran an EKG (BTW not covered by insurance unless I have a compelling reason) which came out normal, but I still insisted to see a cardiologist, she did not object, and a month later I finally got to see one; didn't realize there was so much demand for these kind of doctors.
I have no history of heart disease; and I believe to be in good health, or I was anyways; I hope this clarify my situation.
Thanks for taking the time to read my posting.
