I went to the doc a few days ago for irregular heartbeat. He did an ECG which showed PVC's and a probable heart attack (old). I was so stunned. How could I have a heart attack and not know it? He ordered a Holter monitor test (1st available in 2 wks) and some blood tests and that was it. Still stunned, I left the office. Now the reality has sunk in and I am in a constant state of anxiety. Which brings on more PVC's. Every little chest or arm pain freaks me out. I feel like I should have been tested more or given a med. or something. Any comments will be so appreciated. Finding this site has already brought my panic level down a notch. I feel like crying all the time but it would upset my family too much so I hold it in.
