went to hospital for left sided chest pain ecg abnormal then back to normal ???

Posted , 3 users are following.

hey ive been having really bad chest pains and it lead me to go to the e.r today they ran ecg test and kept saying its abnormal after like 3 readings and they thought i was having a heart attack.. my blood work troponin kept coming back normal twice and they wanted to keep me over night to see the cardiologist in the morning about my ecg. now about 2 hours later a new nurse came in and wanted to do another ecg so she did and moved the wires around different and bam ecgs all of a sudden kept coming back normal after 2 different ones. so they decided to send me home. now im weirded out by this and feel uneasy could something have been wrong and then the ecg just picked up a normal few readings or would its constantly be altered if it was bad ? or did they just not have the wires in the correct location ?

      well i saw the cardiologist today and he was useless basically rushed me out of the door. he said because i had a stress echo a few months ago they are not worried and im to young to worry about it at 28 years old. i still feel like absolute crap and not getting better. he said yes my ecgs are abnormal but the machines say so alot 😑 i guess i have no choice but to ignore it because i keep getting shoved away.
