      Thank you CuppaT for writing and for advice as well. Well, i have already been to Cardiologist several times. I have had ECGs a lot of times, and even holter monitor 24 hours, ultra sound, well basically all of them showing normal as per DR, except ECG there are some slight changes in reading which also DR is not concerning about. I dont understand it seems like more serious heart disease like heart failure is developing, showing these sypmtoms, or there is some other disease causing this which i and dr dont know. Sometimes i come to understanding that doctors dont understand what i tell them about sypmtoms, or i cannot explain good enough. Sytptoms:

      Heart palpitations, missed beats, sometimes pain in left side of my chest like somebody is pullling my heart down, my heart working like old broken clock with noise and difficulty, then, upper stomach pain, left hands, legs, icluding the right ones as well, upper back pain, left armpit areas, and most strangely electric like buzz feeling in neck, jaw, around face area, what are these...o my god, its too much

      Hi adham12803 , I've had a lot of the same symptoms you are having pain in my chest mainly left side, pain and numbness in left arm, jaw pain, neck pain bad stomach pains, pain in my back in the center and by the shoulder blades and nausea. I thought it was all heart related and was in the emergency room 3 times while there they did EKG, blood work, stress test and chest xray. I then followed up with a cardiologist who then did another stress test, ekg, chest xray and blood work and all came back fine. I have been seeing a GI doctor as the doctors believe all my symptoms are related to my hiatal hernia. I'm on 3 medicines for my stomach and some days are better than others but it is very hard to believe that all of this is stomach related and not heart related as the symptoms are very scary. Do you have any stomach issues that you are aware of and do you suffer from anxiety as anxiety will make the symptoms so much worse as I have learned first hand.

      Thank you Jenny59147 for sharing, well yea, Drs kept saying that i have anxiety, I wish had anxiety rather than heart disease. Sometimes i am really confused whether i have anxiety or real heart disease. I had panic attacks well before, still dont know the reason.

      Hi again

      I would suggest contact the secretary

      of your most recent Cardiologist

      there is normaly an email address.

      Or phone the department for it.

      Ask the secretary if they could provide

      a meeting to discuss your concerns.

      This may also be done by email

      to your cardiologist.This could also help with your anxiety too.This way

      the Cardiologist may have more time

      to help with explaining things too.

      You should really be able to come away from most test with some sort of conclusion or be referred to another

      area of medicine if needs be.

      Do be proactive as much as you can

      and push to get clear answers.

      Best of luck to you.

      Just to add

      Has your cardiologist seen your

      new information on the recent

      result of ECG ?

      Which is possible it was not seen

      just a thought.
