Newbie with heart problems
Thu, 03-03-2005 - 11:00pm


I am 39 years old. I have diabetes,skoliosis and schizoaffective disorder which I am stable on with medz.

I have had tachycardia for years-docs tell me but nothing was ever done-bad health insurance. 2 weeks ago my new pcp ran an EKG on me because I also have chest pain at night now. The EKG showed atrial flutter and elevated heart rate.

last week she sent me to a cardiologist and I had an echo,thallium stress test and holter monitor.I go back monday- a 3 hour drive to the city to talk to the cardio,
