What tests or procedures would be done by a cardiologist to know if lyme is affecting or damaging the heart??

Lyme and bart affected my heart badly. It was skipping beats and I would pass out sometimes. I would get a EKG and they would say...oh you did not have a heart attack. Then they told me that I was having panic attacks?
Me? I use to run construction for years and loved it. Loved the pace and re sponsibility. But then all of a sudden I couldn't handle watching my kids open presents..or my airprt.
I had my heart checked for everything. Was told I had a pro lapse. Got many other opinions and they never agreed on anything. Many said my heart was in better shape than theirs. Sonograms on treadmills. etc.
My heart stuff has all stoped bothering me since I got treated. It has been like a cow was lifted from my chest. No probelms at all now.
Our family all got lyme in 2004. It has been a long battle. But all is well now with my children. Feb 8 TH of 2009 is when I left Envita. And I am celebrating a year of perfect health.

Yes, me too, lots of tests no answers. Had treadmill, EKG, wore a monitor, sonograms, and an angiogram. No problems except when my heart didn't work!

Cardiac symptoms have gone away with treatment for Lyme.
