    Hi Laura

    Sounds like you are experiencing a lot of anxiety about your diagnosis.  Perhaps you should request a second opinion and further explain your honest feelings. Go from there and best to you.  Lisa

    Laura : A second opinion is excellent plan, and calling your original cardiologist again is good too. My suggestion is to keep a record of your symptoms. Perhaps you would benefit health wise and heart healthwise to take anti-anxiety meds too.
