  1. I just went through that. however the tired and fatigue continue, I have no energy, still have problems with shortness of breathing. I had been complaining to my primary doctor he didn’t seem concerned. The cardiologist does not seems, concerned with my fatigue I do not know weather they checked my heart thoroughly I still suffer with shortness of breath when I work hard. one thing they were very thorough with the bill, 75,000 for 2 days in the hospital and one meal.

  2. I am 84 years old. For almost 4 years, I have consulted with my PCP,
    complaining of the mentioned symptoms. I even went to ER couple of times.
    Recently, while visiting my Daughter (in a neighboring state) I was finally diagnosed with AFib in the ER. After a week’s stay in the hospital my heart rate was stabilized. I was given a 30 day supply of blood thinners and heart med, discharged and told to return to my PCP for ‘follow-up’.
    My experience has taught me that the medical professionals are too often not as aware of the symptoms of heart problems, as the general public!!
