Hi I am a 33 year old female, who a year ago was sent to a cardiologist for a pericardial effusion. They determined it was idiopathic. Some time had gone by, I was evaluated for over a year, with countless ecg and multiple echo's later. During which I developed palpitations. I wore a heart holster for 48hr. They did see I was having superventricular episodes, but said they were within normal limits. Since all my test came back within normal limits I was released, even though I stated I was having intermittent chest pain, my palpitations changed and sometimes I get dizzy and short of breath with some palpitations. So I went to get a second opinion, I seen this doctor twice, he ran two ecg, and redid the heart holster test, when I went back to get my results they said everything was okay. Then I got a call from there office saying they read the wrong heart holster test, they read the one from the prior doctor, to come in to redo a egg, they had the hospital fax over the correct heart holster test, needless to say, they said something came up on the egg and the heart holster and my appointment is in two days. I know people are human and make mistakes, but should I go to someone else? I mean if you don't have time to read the test results and know your reading the wrong ones, how can I trust I'm getting the best care. This is after all my heart your talking about. What should I do??
