Assistant: Are you experiencing any shortness of breath or chest pain? Is there a history of heart disease in your family?

Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Yes ECG can pick up for changes to show if there was a heart attack or myocardial infarction

So if you have a normal ECG it is unlikely that you had any heart disease in the past like a heart attack

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Sorry to stress this matter again I had ecg heart scan 24 heart monitor 3 months befor palpations but when I had the palpations I did not get them checked out until yesterday I had ecg what am trying to say is that if there was heart attack about 2 years ago would the ecg have picked up yesterday and my other concern is when my husband had heart attack he went to ecg within 2 hour but ecg was clear it was blood test that said he had heart attack so can we trust ecg

Yes the ECG would have picked a heart attack if you had one two years ago

Secondly an untreated heart attack would certainly have given complications like heart failure by now

So there is no chance of a heart attack two years ago

Please do let me know if you have any other question
