Dizziness, nausea, chest pains, edema. BP, heart rate, liver enzymes elevated. Indications? Cause of symptoms?

I m a 51 year old female who has been extremely dizzy, nauseated, having chest pains, and edema . My BP has been elevated even though I m on medicaiton for it, and my heart rate has elevated 20 points per minute. I went to the doctor for this and my EKG is abnormal , showing a block and an extra beat, and my liver function tests are elevated. My glucose is normal, as is my CBT . My bad cholesterol is high, my good cholesteral not as bad, and my liver function tests are elevated . I have an appointment with a Gastro to look into that, a nuclear stress test and ultrasound of my heart scheduled, and they have a Neuro scheduled (I also have PTC) to see if that s the cause of the dizziness and edema. I m concerned about all these tests and what could it mean? should I be scared?

General & Family Physician 's  Response
liver pathology alone can cause elevated liver enzymes,nausea,edema(advance stage),dizziness and upper abdominal screening to rule out liver diseases is important....
alternatively cardiac illness can cause edema,elevated liver enzymes and hence cardiac status should be properly evaluated.....
another thing is medication side effects.....some anti
hypertensive drugs cause edema and GI upset....
wish you good health...
