Welcome to Health Care Magic
The ER staff may be right - they are better trained in such issues than primary care Physician, who has rather too large areas of interest to focus.
A scar by itself could not account for the symptoms. There are quite a few underlying illness and they will now be investigating them to diagnose and treat the present problem. .
A simpler way to confirm scar will be to look at the old ECG! And compare.
A better way to look at the scar will be ECHOcardiogram (wall thickness and motion).
In problem cases, (radio-)isotope scintigraphy can clear the doubt. During your regular follow up with your cardiologist/Internist, the problem can be sorted out.
Wishing speedy recovery
