Can I get disability if I have long qt syndrome?

Why? How is this disabiling you? Is there a cause, ie genetic or a medication? If this is not allowing you to make a living, i suppose it is possible - however not likely.

Cardiologist. Long qt syndrome is a risk factor for arrhythmias, and if you are also experiencing chest pain/pressure you do need to see a cardiologist. You need an ecg, echocardiogram, blood tests for electrolytes and thyroid function, and a holter monitor to start the work-up.

If there's any doubt, you may have to wait a day or two for the official interpretation by a cardiologist or heart rhythm (EP) doctor.
