    Hi,

    I had a EGC done. It is a ultra sound of your heart. It is really neat actually. I was having many palpitations also. My results came back just fine, they just wanted to make sure. If they really are worried about your heart they would admit you into the hospital.. That is what I kept telling myself about my heart.

    Yes I agree, it is hard to believe the doctors. Maybe you need to find one you could trust?

    Hi - I was sent for an ECG because I was having ectopic beats. It was very quick. You lie down and nurse puts electrodes (I think!!) on your chest and I had one on my knee and thats it - painless and over in minutes. The only problem I had was that I found it hard to lie still as I was so agitated!! My heart rate was too fast (because I was so anxious) but everything else was fine. I'm sure yours will be too.
    Love Helen

    Hi ceecee, Like jackie I have had loads, then beleive there is nothing wrong for a while. then the old health anxiety returns snd get scared again. I had a ECG at docs surgery about a month ago, lots of doctors have them at the surgery, I still had bad pains and palps so doctor sent me for a treadmill exersize ECG and still clear. Dont wory normal ecg takes less than a minute. take care. Vernon

    I've had ECG after being taken into hospital with chest pain, so tight thought I was having a heart attack, ECG was normal - just anxiety - didn't realise it at the time though
