Cardiologist 's  Response
Dear Mrs,

If you went to ER and they didn't find anything serious, but you still have complaints, I would advise you ha take a regular appointment with your cardiologist.
In case you have palpitations and chest pain some examinations should be performed, such as ECG, holter monitoring, stress test etc, to find out the cause of your complaints.

Hope I could help you

Wishing you good health
