I was told by primary doctor that I have Paroxysmal AFib. One visit he heard it and one he didn't. I had EKG done at Cardiologist office and it was fine. I have been in ER quite a few times during the 2 months this has gone on. All ER EKG'S are negative. I did have pulse jumping around one visit my sister said. But it wasn't documented because I was transferred to a different hospital to have an EEG done.
So Cardiologist told me I don't have AFib. But he did give me Holter Monitor to wear for 24hrs and am having an Echo cardiogram done on Jan. 30th. I am nervous that Holter Monitor won't show anything. That it is not active when test done and he says I definitely don't have AFib. Am nervous because what if I do and it doesn't show up? Any thoughts or suggestions?
What should I expect from an echo cardiogram procedure? How long does procedure take? How long to get results?
