I am 41 years old. about 3 1/2 months ago I started experiencing stomach and chest discomfort. This so happened to start occuring when I put my house on the market to sell. Had the EKG, stress test, CT scan, sonogram on gall bladder and upper GI. Everything negative. So I talked my cardiologist into a hyeart cath because I was really getting concerned. He did the cath and found 50% blockage in an artery. He told me he was going to stent it because he was already in there but he was not real sure this was going to solve my problem.
After the procedure I still have not felt well and it has gotten worse. Every little feeling in my chest scares my to death and I seem to be obssessing about it. My primary care physician and my cardiologist think I am experiencing anxiety and this is what may be causing my chest pains, discomfort, and stomach discomfort. He has put me on lexapro.
I was also a smoker and cut back from 30 cigarrettes a day to 6 a day. Last Friday was my last day and I am on day 3 of quitting.
Has anyone else experienced this type of thing?
