I was wondering what you wonderful nurses would do, I am having irregular heart rate with a flutter and chest pain, as well as shortness of breath. This has happened on and off for about 2 weeks now. Last week I went to my local ER they took an EKG and sent me on my merry way at the time I was having numbness in my hands. I don't have numbness now, but this still hurts pretty bad. I've been throwing up in my sleep lately too. In all honesty am I being a hyperchondriac?! Or should I go to a bigger hospital tonight?
I also posted this somewhere else before I saw this, I should also add that I made an appt with PCP but it won't be till the 29th

You have done the right thing in going to the ED when you have the symptoms, and then making an appointment with your PCP.
If symptoms persist you might well want to visit the ED again.
Sorry, members of this board are not qualified to dispense medical advice.
Please do follow up, either in the ED or with your PCP.
I hope they can figure out what is going on.
