my mom went to er yesterday with classic heart attack symptoms, heavy chest feeling, tingling/pain in left arm, dizziness. they did all typical things, said everything looked fine, and took blood work for enzymes. It has been almost 24 hours, she is stil in hospital. they have done enzyme test 3 times, and nurses say they "look good". she seems to be getting the runaround that is associated with medicare fraud. She is a nervous person, has had "nerve problems/stress problems all her life. They just keep putting her off saying more enzyme tests are needed, one nurse said maybe a cardiac cath, and on and on. how can we get some real answers. She has not seen a doctor since the middle of the night.
