Hello everyone. I am new to the site (: I would greatly appreciate any advice/info/ideas on my horrific experienced, sx, and tests

Brief history : tachycardia started Jan 2015 (resting hr always above 95)
Sinus arrythmia started April 2015 (no arrythmias since around September of last year) Felt okay for awhile n then started heart attack symptoms. Every one. They were mild at first though.
Then my veins went from non existent to being covered in them within a week

Last month had an episode and have been generally unwell since then. very tired and sob

now I've had 3 in the past week n hospitalized every time. Every time they are worse also. (my BP which is normally low/average is high during these episodes that last between 2 and 4 hours)

Cholesterol good.
30 year old female
low rbc count not due to iron b12 or ferratin. also it has dropped from 4.2 to 3.5 this last month
External 02 is 99
Internal 02 is 70
Pretty much bedridden now

ekgs have gone from normal to borderline normal to abnormal in last year. Left sided heart abnormality noted

Echo appears normal

Now here's the question about the nuclear stress test I just had done last week

I was told by a very arrogant impatient cardiologist in er(because a 30 year old couldn't be suffering from a heart condition) who smirked at my symptom list while playing on his phone that I was taking off the machine because he saw a change in rhythym...but then he said he didn't see anything n only took me off because he could tell from the 30 seconds of me on the treadmill I was fine. He then injected me with something that would help with headaches which I remember started with an a and left.

So again he injected me with 2 medications via iv, put me on the exercise machine, took me off after 30 seconds and then injected me w something that started w an a. the assistant seemed very confused about this too (asked him if he's sure he wants to give it to me)

I am so confused aND

Also this was before my next episode two days later where I went to a different hospital. I was immediately put in icu n given nitro. Also had a cardiologist from this hospital come see me. I have already been phones by his staff 4 times (before answering) to make sure I would be at the appt. Strange drs never call. especially with my insurance

hi. what is your episode? shortness of breath, just tachy?? nitro, yep I use it. for angina. if you have been pushin a little hard, esp with stress and under duress this type pf episode can happen. how is ya blood pressure and ya kidneys? good hydration is needed. kidney probs can lead to heart probs because kidneys regulate ya blood pressure. were these episodes a myocardial infarct? I reckon a thorough check up will do ya good.
