Hi. No, I have never had an echocardiogram, just the EKG's. I go for an appt this coming Monday so I will ask for one. How is it done? I dont have insurance so I have to pay for all my tests. I havent had any palpatations yet today but Im sure after just thinking about it, they will start right up.
