This money will pay for Doctor visits and testing. Also help with living expenses until I can find a job while waiting for disability.

I am a 54 year old woman, that has been unemployed for 1 1/2 years. I was terminated because I have severe swelling of my legs and feet and I missed 2 days over the companies policy on absences. I had a Doctor's letter stating that I would miss work because of my condition, but, I was still fired. Prior to my termination, I had an appointment with a Cardiologist referred to by my Primary Doctor. The day before the appointment I got a call from the Doctor's offfice, saying that I had to pay them $300.00 the day of the appointment. Deductible hadn't been met on my insurance policy. I didn't have that kind of money. I had to cancel the appointment. I was then fired a month later. No insurance, no job and not knowing what was causing my legs and feet to swell up 3 times their size. I tried getting disability, but was denied. Still, I don't know if I have a heart condition. I got an Attorney to fight for my disability but he says that I have to get medical proof. What am I supposed to do? I have no job, no money, no insurance. A Cardiologist is very expensive. I went to the Emergency room last week hoping to get answers. That was the only way for me to see a Doctor without having to pay. They just told me to go see a follow-up Doctor. Well, they want their money upfront. The Doctor at the hospital, once again, suggested Congestive Heart Failure. I am between a rock and a hard place. I need help. I have a Daughter that depends on me to help pay the bills at where we live. I need to get medical proof and I also need to know if I have a heart condition. This has been going on for 3 years now. Please help. You can call me at 727-290-6879 if you need to know more details. Thank you for any help.
