Yesterday I spent 8 hours in the hospital having ecg's etc after a period of severe chest pain and back pain. My ecg showed an abnormal ST, and perhaps bradycardia.
I am 53 years old with a heart beat of between 58 and 65 bpm and my blood pressure was 133/88 - the doctor left me very worried as she said - 'well you could have a heart attack at any point but don't worry it probably wont happen' she then discharged me and sent me to my GP who looked carefully at my ECG and said it looked 'normal' but I have been referred to a cardiac clinic and am awaiting a date for being seen.
I feel breathless, panicy all the time now and scared to sleep - my doctor gave me aspirin and also an under the tongue spray which he didn't think I would ever use as he said it sounded more like acute heart burn - which I have had before.
A few years ago I was told I had a mild arrhythmia - but I am so worried - is there anyone there who can put my mind at rest?
