I am a very healthy and active 40 year odl female. I have some heart disease in my family and smoked for 15 years. I have been smoke free for over 10 now. I have been have extreme chest pains on the left side that goes up into my neck and jaw, down my left arm for the past 4 months. They start of dull and then intensify to crushing. I wore a heart moniter for 3 days and they found I had Sinus Tachycarrdia. They have also completed two other test and my findings are below. I have had several calls into my doctor to go over the testing but they have not calleed me back so I am sure they are all normal but I would still like to know what they mean. CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE ;-)
Finding: A 2-day stress/rest study was performed. The patient exercised 7 min, acheiving 90% of maximum predicted herat rate. Gated cine images today suggest an ejection of just about 70%. End diastolic volume about 70cc. There is relative reduction in kinesis at the apex and septum relative to the remainder of the mycoardium.
Perfusion imaging today demonstrates no discrete fixed or reversable pathology
Conclusion: Ejection fraction maintained. No reversing pathology seen
Sinus or ectopic atrial rhythm
Abnormal R-wave progression, early transition
Minimal ST elevation, lateral leads
Rate/ 77
PR / 167
QT / 383
QTc  / 434
P /  -58
QRS / 76
T / 55
Thank you for any assistance as my doctors are not getting back to me and I just want to know what it all means

I am sorry we are unable to give you any input into your test results.  I agree with you, if the tests were indicative of a serious problem you would have received a phone call.  Continue to be proactive and call your Dr. for an explanation of your results.
Let us know how you do as we are here to support you.

Thank you for the quick responce. I was able to get a hold of my doctors office since my post and they are out of the office for the rest of the week and he has not read the results yet so that is why they have not called me since. Hopefully next week they will call me. ;-)
