Some doctors have to be proven wrong before they will admit to their judgement of error. I'm sorry, OP, that you had to go thru that. But I'm really glad you faced your fears.

Sounds like anxiety tbh. If you've had all the correct tests (echo, ECG etc) your heart is fine. If you're really worried get a second opinion. Then stop worrying. Btw why would you go straight for the weights room?? That's high intensity! Gentle aerobic would be better for you then work up.

As my earlier comment said, assuming he's had the correct tests which are negative he's fine. Cardiology for the most part is black and white. It depends on what his symptoms are but based upon the history in the fml op has had months of consultations and probably investigations which I assume have come back negative, hence the "perfectly healthy". Well trained doctors don't say that lightly. There may be a tiny chance op will have some rare congenital heart disorder but they usually s

Honestly I can't compete with your knowledge of everything as I'm pursuing law not medicine. However, from what I do know and the situations I have been in sometimes issues aren't evident at first, sometimes doctors get it wrong and sometimes it takes having to go to the emergency room to get several additional tests done. I guess I've been the victim of being a difficult medical case far too many times! I appreciate your going into a field to help people and being so respectful of my comments

There is nothing in this FML that said they had any testing. They told doctor, doctor said anxiety. End of story. I've had this happen. Had they done testing, I doubt this would have been the outcome. And a real Dr won't give medical advice or diagnosis without a complete history and much more info. Lawsuits are serious business.

The fact that many people are blaming this on the doctor appalls me. No one is perfect, doctors can make mistakes. I bet every single person on this site who has had a job has made a major mistake at work. Hell I accidentally overcharged someone's credit card $200 over the actual total on the first day at my first job. Doctors have to know A LOT to help their patients, but doctors also have lives outside of work so something could slip their minds every now and then. Yes it can be life threateni

Adding to that, I have had many tests (echo, ECG, etc) to make sure I don't have heart problems and every test has come back the same: my heart is in excellent condition. In conclusion, OP being in the ER could actually be due to his anxiety.

I agree, why only 400? A good 450 should yield much better results for toning the muscles, or even 500 if you're up for it. (end of sarcasm)

My sister has this. I remember her boyfriend texted me saying they just got a kinnect and xbox. When i got home around a hour later, my dad was off to the emergency room. I kinda laughed to myself.

6- is that what the fml community has come to ? We have to put "(sarcasm)" to signify we are using sarcasm. That's pretty sad.

The massive amount of people who have faulty sarcasm processors installed from the early 1900's still roam. --- It's not pathetic at all though. *sarcasm*

36 - I figured most people would understand the joke, but there are always people who don't, and I didn't want to start a huge argument about it. I do agree that it somewhat ruins the effect of the joke for the people who understood it. I guess if I have to clarify sarcasm in my comments, they're really that bad.

59- let the stupid people who don't understand sarcasm get ripped apart and offended by sarcastic bosses. And leave your joke to the people who can understand it. No need to ruin it.

When my friend's dad was dying of a heart condition and needed a quintuple bypass, the doctors told him that his heart was as strong as an ox's. It was only when they moves here, that the resident doctors actually properly diagnosed him, and he got the required operation.

In short OP, you're not alone, the healthcare system has failed many other people, and it's a real disgrace that needs to be rectified.

It has nothing to do with any system. No doctor can know everything at once; mistakes are made. You have to see a specialist if you want a truly accurate assessment.

These kind of stories somewhat scare me. We can't even trust doctors anymore D: Mistakes are made, okay, but I hate it when professionals like doctors are so stubborn with the diagnoses they did or did not give and then turning out to be wrong...

As we cannot generalize sports referees, we cannot generalize doctors. They are human beings. No two are the same. Sure, some make mistakes. Just hope it ain't a fatal one and make sure you get the opinion of more than one physician. Specialists can be expensive but what's worth more than your life?

similar thing with my dad as of the moment, my dad kept on telling his doctor that he did not suffer with asthma and she refused to think otherwise. So, he goes to a specialist and finds out he has a lung disease... luckily now he's being provided the right medication and has this oxygen tank. Sometimes I wonder whether some doctors got there liscence as a freebie from a cereal box -_-

Exercise is one of the best ways to conquer real anxiety. Facing your fears is the only cure for what you are anxious about. Its called exposure therapy.
