I remember answering that post and I think you have to advocate for yourself when you go to the ER or the physicians office.
I would like to see you follow through with your physician in the clinic and look for a cause for your sx . ER's only deal with the acute emergency and are not set up to run a lot of tests if the obvious cause, in this case your heart checks out ok.
Good luck and please do follow up with your clinic or see a specialist if you continue to have the racing heart issues after today.
Hi Jenny...Hyper thyroid can absolutley cause a racing heart and breathlessness. I am not suggesting that you have this as obvioulsy I'm not a doctor but if you end up going to the doc that is the first test I would ask for.
I do not have health insurance either...do you have a county clinic or a place that bases their fees on income where you live? Some cities/towns have clinics run by the United Way that offer services for very little money, or donations. I have gone to them several times.
Feel better and don't let another doctor label you as just anxious without testing you for the obvious.
