    They are only reliable at the time they are taken if that makes sense.

    They can show abnormalities in the heart rythmn but they can't tell you if there are going to be future problems like a clot in the artery.

    I get chest pains all the time, they will be through anxiety. They use ECG's as they are reliable and can detect anything wrong with your heart. Try not to worry and see your doctor again if you are still worrying
