Does anyone know, roughly, how much an electrocardiogram might cost at a private clinic (probably in London)? Many thanks smile

No idea of cost, you could phone a clinic and check, but I wonder why you would want one done. Can you read them yourself or do you need the help of a cardiologist?

holy shit that's expensive.
why don't you go to an NHS Dr and have a free one?

Not sure if it is for a specific worry, but don't most GP's surgery's offer this. It's a very simple test on a basic bit of kit.

I went to see my GP this week as I've been having chest pains - I think they are due to anxiety but wanted to get it checked out. She listened to my heart and said it was fine, but when I told her about the kind of anxiety I am experiencing; the thoughts I am having, she dismissed is with a Oh FFS face and a tut. Not sure I really trust her judgement.

I poured my heart out to her, but was in and out in 5 mins and made to feel like a silly little girl. I almost had to insist on a standard blood test (my mum has an underactive thyroid and I am showing similar symptoms) in an attempt to see what can be ruled out.
