A resting EKG is quite insensitive (not a good tool) to detect heart disease
. You have some cardiovascular risk factors (eg. overweight, approaching or at menopause, potential sleep apnea
) and therefore the best way to proceed is to arrange an exercise stress test
with imaging, for example echocardiogram
. The symptoms to me as a cardiologist are worrisome enough to arrange for such a test; if the test is negative, it gives us a lot more peace of mind, and you can focus on improving your risk factors.
Hope that helps
