For the past 6 months or so I've had anxiety related to my heart. I have been to multiple doctors and had ecg's done 3 times back in march and April. Because my anxiety wasn't getting better the psychiatrist and psychologist got me to do another ECG on the 15th of last month, along with more blood tests. They still haven't given me the results, and every time I go back they just say that they aren't ready yet. This is really annoying me because On the ecg printout it said "Probable Left Ventricular Hypertrophy ECG". But no one seems to think it's anything. I get chest pain when doing exercise which I feel shouldn't cause me chest pain, but every time I've called ER or gone to the doctors for this they just do an ecg listen to my heart and say nothing is wrong, so I don't call anyone anymore. As I mentioned the ECG's I had months before all came back fine and my doctor looked over them as well saying there was nothing wrong, The psychologist and everyone else says that if it was anything I would have gotten the results back a long time ago. I'm too afraid to exercise much because of all this, and every time I feel pain in my chest I freak out, but nothing ever happens to me, even though I feel like there is something wrong. I've also had my blood pressure checked which is on the lower side, no where near high blood pressure, my weight is fine for my height and age, I have no history of heart problems in my family or anything apart from natural deaths by heart attack at old age. I just want to know what this means, if this single ecg was just wrong, but no one will give me the results back or tell me.

If your in the USA, your entitled to have your tests results and you need to write a letter and send it to the places you had the tests done, you might be charged a processing fee, insurance may or may not cover this processing fee. Records need to be requested in writting..
Second, if only the one ecg is saying probable, then it could be a false positive tests.
Others will come by with better help.
Now, there are other causes of chest pain, costochrondrotists causes chest is very real and a moist heating pad helps, tests this if a moist heating pad helps it could be costo...anxiety makes this pain worse as well...
My prayers and well wishes are with you and I hoped you can get your results soon...
* So many dx's I could write a book* "It would be nice if we could use the edit button in real life"...
