I have had many different heart rate and Rhythm issues, for example, I have been told at different times I have had episodes of atrial tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia, postural tachycardia, sinus tachycardia, sinus tachycardia, possible electrical fault, been offered pace makers and told I could just die because my heart rate was so irregular they have thought I had heart attacks because of this and at one point thought is may have angina. There now saying after one day of me wearing a heart rate monitor that I have inappropriate sinus tachycardia. They said it won't kill me and I will be fine and that I can have medication for it but will be on it for a long time. My issue is that they are dismissing the problems they caught on ECG earlier that has changed quite frequently and I don't know what to do. What if it goes back in to serious rhythms and they have missed it. I think there is a bigger picture that they may be missing but I don't want to fight with my doctor life I have had to do so often I was supposed to have a treadmill test and then I switched cardiologist. I am so confused, they just see the problem I am having at the time and don't even try and find reasons for it as a whole and I can't live like this anymore. Also I have autism and many health professionals I have seen are very nasty to me because I struggle to explain on the spot, this makes it hard for me to understand them because they don't have the patience to communicate with me. Thanks to any one who attempts to help me with this, if I just knew the right thing to say maybe I would be able to tell my doctor how I feel.
