Ecg : You should establish with a cardiologist that based on reviewing all medical details would be able to set up a plan. An ecg only reflects heart changes at the time is done and has no predictive ability. You need a test that will be able to register your heart activity at the time you have your symptoms and there are now heart monitors that can do that.
