I took a vicoden and pain has eased
I still have the pain but is not taking my breath. I have severe panic disorder. I have a hiatial hernia and C-spine is too straight. Was hospitalized a little over month ago for chest pain and rapid heartrate. Had to wear heart monitor for 5 weeks after all tests in hospital showed no problems but wante to check for arrythmias to be safe. After 5 weeks of monitor it showed I was throwing PAC's and PVC's. Cardilogist said I didn't event need follow up appointment but set one up anyway because I was still be bothered by on and off rapid heartbeat. What are your thoughts on this please?
Okay, could I go to ENT service down from my home for EKG? Also one year ago was seen by UNC Cardiology for full cardiac workup, stress echo, nuclear echo. Everything showed healthy heart. I am also experiencing menopausal symptoms and was told this could lead to sudden racing heart as well as my panic and anxiety to be increased. I take xanax for those. The pain increases upon moving my arms. The onset of this pain came as soon as I ate. I am also having my period. I guess basically and I promise to stop asking questions after this, but I guess I am asking you "Should I believe the doctors and especially UNC that nothing is wrong with my heart? Have also been told I have fibromyalgia and almost arthritis type situation in my sternum
