Hello Everyone
I dont know how this works if I should keep adding to my original post but I am currently in a panic...
I had my cardiologist appt this coming sat to find out what the ultrasound of my heart results were at 1;30 and now they called me and moved it up to 10:30 I am somewhat in a panic because it sounded fishy she said oh someone cancelled and she though I would like to come in ...nah doesnt sound right and then she said I would have to do another ECG when I got there ...I am scared and with my fear and anxiety and having to climb the stairs to the office I am sure my ECG is going to be way off ...
I know I cannot change the outcome of the test I wish I could but the fear is eating at me ...
I dread the news and am very very afraid ....
I didnt think my ecg results were that bad otherwise the ER dr would have suggested I stay for observation....I would think ....

It sounds legitimate to me. You can always keep your original appointment. Try not to stress out, it will only make you anxious. Relax...

Moving you to a 10:30 AM slot from a 1:30 PM slot makes perfect sense to me - your Dr. wants to finish the day early and be off doing something fun. 
My Psychiatrist's secretary is always calling to offer me a opening "today" as some one cancelled and she just keeps a list of people who may be able to make a quick change in their plans !  If it is in the morning I will problably say no but if it is afternoon I will take it and just like that I have no time to worry about the appointment as I am busy getting ready. P-docs are hard to get an appointment with and I am usually booked out 4 months ahead.  :-)
Now, let go of the Saturday worries and live in the moment.

Hello Everyone
I just wanted to touch base and let you know what is going on . So I went back to the cardiologist for my results while there he did another ecg and of course I was having a panic attack ....but it was the same non specific st abnormaility ....but my ultrasound that was done of the heart he said came back completley normal that with normal blood work and several ecg all normal he said he wouldnt worry about the ecg because he knows healthy people who have that it was the ultrasound that counted more because it would show blockage the way the blood flows all that stuff thankfully everything checked out and he did not feel the need to see me again unless something came up ....I am so greatful that all is well in the heart area ...
I am still alittle worried but I will keep an eye on it ...what do you guys suggest do you think I should get further testing.
