I had an ambulatory 24 hour ECG on March 25th and an echocardiogram on April 3rd. I have no appointment to discuss the results and the consultant whose name was on the paperwork for both tests is, according to the sonographer, not a cardiologist but a general medical person. How long should I wait before calling someone for an appointment, and who, my GP or the consultant on the paperwork?
I had a visit to A&E about 5 weeks ago, sent by my GP after telling her what I had been experiencing. I was told then that I was probably suffering ectopic beats and that there was no problem with this. These tests were organised after that, although more quickly than I was told they would be, which is a blessing but also causes me a little concern as I wonder why so quick!
I just want a diagnosis for what's going on and a treatment plan to alleviate the symptoms as much as possible.
