They wouldn't let you just walk out if it was something seriously wrong.

I think you are winding yourself up more so it makes the stress and worry worse and then you get more symptoms.

Why don't you talk to your doctor again about this as I am not sure anything we say is helping.

I've been told by two paramedics and a doctor, that these EKG machines are EXTREMELY sensitive to movement. So if you're nervous and shaking even just a tiny bit, or tense in any way, they will pick it up and it can affect the reading on the ECG. The computer writes an automatic 'report' on the signals it picked up, based on algorithms.

My doctor said that because the EKG companies don't want to get sued, they pick up every tiny movement. The thing is, he said, is that doctors and cardiologists have actually been TRAINED to read and interpret these ECGS properly. ECGS need an expert (a human one at that!) to actually decipher it.
