    I think I have been misdiagnosed

    What the right way to go about it?

    Firstly my gp was saying a just needed rest then I reached a point of vomiting and a terrible headache for hours. I have had tests conducted (many ecg, 24 hours monitor and echocardiogram) the guy said he didn’t need to look at the results as he already knows what I have.

    Ended up in hospital again and another doctor (different department) believed I had something else. Where do I go from here as I believe the second doctor is right?

    "the guy said he didn’t need to look at the results as he already knows what I have."

    Perhaps you should find/consult witn an internist (internal medicine specialist).
