I went to the ER recently at the TMC in Monck's Corner. Though I was seen quickly, I was diagnoses incorrectly. I was told I had really bad food poisoning and was given by the doctor I saw, Thompson, ibuprofen and tylenal and a medication to ease my stomach problem on a Thursday night. I had a follow up appointment with a physician at Palmetto Primary today (monday) and was told I did not have food poisoning but something MUCH more serious. The doctor at TMC was in my room for 2 minutes and diagnosed me immediately with food poisoning. While I spent 3 hours at my appointment with Palmetto and figured out I had IBS.

Tips & Advices
The main difference separating a heart attack from heart failure is in the underlying reasons for the occurrence. Hearts attacks can be traced to blockages in arteries and acute flares, while heart failure is more likely to be due to congenital heart disease and a more developed condition.
Arrhythmia is an abnormal beating of the heart that may feel like it comes at a fluttering, accelerated, or otherwise irregular pace. While in many cases these occurrences can be infrequent, benign and go away on their own, if persistent, they may require further consultation with a cardiologist.
Cholesterol is a naturally occurring fatty body compound used to produce hormones. It becomes a problem for heart health when there are high levels of bad cholesterol, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), which can lead to arterial congestion.
Visits to a cardiologist typically entail a doctor reviewing and assessing your health, and more specifically within the context of your heart health. It is important to prepare for appointments by having a list of medications and any documents related to your medical history. Some tests (like EKGs) may be administered on a first visit.
Invasive cardiologists are distinguished from non-invasive cardiologists for their ability to perform a number of specialized procedures, including pacemaker and defibrillator insertions, cardioversions and emergent angioplasties.
