Welcome to our forum! I'm so sorry that you are having these issues! Heart issues always scared me as they can turn so serious at any time.
I would agree with trying to find a Cardiologist that at least understands that Lyme and Babesia can have serious heart issues! That way you won't be pressured to use treatments that may be counter productive with the Lyme disease.
If you haven't yet, I would like to highly encourage you to read through our "New to Lyme? Start Here" thread as it's packed full of important information, symptom lists as Lyme rarely travels alone, informative links, helpful pdf's and even a list of questions to ask any doctor that you may be seeking treatment for your tick-borne infections from!
Have you been tested for any co-infections and if so, do you know what the results are? As I said earlier, it's not very common for a person to have only Lyme - although it's certainly possible.
Do you have a LLMD line up to see, or do you need some help finding one? I don't have any clue if you can request that you get a Cardio doc or not, but here are our usual links for finding a LLMD:
You can start a new thread titled something like:"Looking for LLMD in the _______ area." Although you will need to enable your email option in your profile in order to receive any recommendations, as we don't allow doctor's names and contact info to be posted on the forum for several reasons. You can enable your email option in your profile, under 'edit profile'. Be sure to click the submit button to actually save your preference.

You can also go to The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link:www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277&Itemid=74
You will want to find an ILADS (International Lyme And Associated Diseases Society) doctor. The ILADS site is another great place to read to get you started on your Lyme journey. www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/treatment_guidelines_clearing_ilads.html
We are sure looking forward to getting to know you through your posts as you join in our conversations!
