picking the right cardiologist
Hello everyone ive had a pacemaker for nearly two years and ive had my struggles, anxiety, panic attaks, palpitations, ect. Ive been through at least 4 cardioliogist who really didnt make me feel better about my concerns especially concerning my heart palpitations that i was recieving from time to time. I know i have anxiety and that might be a contributing factor but i wanted to be sure and the other drs would just brush me off. I met this one EP who i was referred to and turned out to be fantastic. He put me on a zio patch for two weeks on me and told me my results. He made me feel so much relaxed and reassured me my heart was fine. Spoke to me about the effects of anxiety and how to cope with it. He also changed my meds because i was on to much medication. He cut my metropopol to 12.5 mg once a day and flaccinide to twice a day. I was on elliquis for slight afib about a year ago but since that i have never had another episode. I think my point is is to find the right DR that will fullfil your needs and that you can be comfortable without it compromising your sanity. .
