Feeling lightheaded and shaky, fluttering s in the chest. ECG showing borderline abnormality of the ventricle. Advice?

Hi, I saw my GP last Tuesday. I have been feeling light headed ,shaky and sweaty.
I hae also had flutterings in the middle of my chest, which has now got worse.Sometimes I am getting spasms in the centre, but also a feeling of pressure. I was sent for blood tests for fbc, glucose, lipids.
These are all normal. I have also had an ecg - this showed a borderline abnormality to the left ventricle. Yesterday my GP said this is fine, although he is puzzled by my symptoms. I am waiting for results from a chest xray, and have been referred for an echo and 7 day ecg. In the meantime I feel generally unwell and tired. I am still getting breathless without doing much, and the tightness is very frequent.
I am 46, female, non smoker, I do not drink alchohol. Please advise.

Your symptoms are a pointer to some cardiac problem.If you are getting breathlessness, spasms,immediately go to cardiology emergency room without waiting for scheduled ECHO and 7 day holter. There may be impending abnormality giving to symptoms and delay might not be more damaging. I f any intervention is required, cardiac CCU should take care immediately,atleast if nothing severe comes out, you would be clear of doubt and danger,if anytrhing found may give you chance for earlier tackling
