It is unlikely that: the cardiologist will be able to explain your multiple symptoms but he/she will be able to exclude a cardiac etiology for your chest pain. Then you will need to be evaluated for your other complaints. A neurologist evaluation would seem reasonable to exclude multiple sclerosis as a possibility.
