Ok I have been having a pain in my chest when biking the last 2 weeks so off to the Cardi Dr I go..Never short of breath etc.. He does blood work , eco, ekg and exam all look great. LDL is 110 HDL is 97 Triglys are 54
He tells me he need s to do an echo stress test tomorrow and hands me a book on angina and a script for nitro !!!! WTH is this ...I am never going to sleep tonight and my bp will be thru the roof tomorrow, is this just a cover your butt or does he think I have a blockage ??
If I fail the stress test does that mean surgury ?? I am so stressing right now im tempted to cancel the apt !
The pain I get I am getting now when I turn my body a certin way. I bike 30 miles a day every day and have dropped 25 pounds in the last 3 months and am at perfect weight. Dont smoke ( did 15 yrs agao not heavy though ) I feel like im 80 yrs old !!
If I fail the test what then, stens, bypass.....Man I thought I was doing good excersisng, I have never had chest pains and never had shortness of breath even now...
