The Web says that is inflammation of a cartiledge in the chest that resolves quite rapidly by itself. I don’t see how that would cause a fast pulse. The KardiaMobile requires a cell phone app.

I don’t have any kind of monitor though for it to pick up my health info.
What kind of cell phone can I use does it have to be a smart phone or can it be a IPhone

Hmm! The ER did not refer you to a cardiologist? Maybe you do not have insurance. Has your heart rate always been this fast. There’s a $79 gadget called KardiaMobile that lets you run your own simple EKG on your cell phone and email the results to your doctor. That’s all I got.

I do have insurance and I don’t know why they didn’t even talk to me about these results let alone refer me to a cardiologist. They said my chest pain was costochondritis. Does the KatdiaMobile app require an Apple Watch? I don’t have one. Thank you for your response!
