Yesterday I went to the doctors and the nurse said I had ischemia in the postural valve ????????
Today I went to see my doctors he said there was minor changes on the ECG. He couldn't understand what the nurse meant. He did ask if I got short of breath on exertion, which I do not. I did mention the palpitations and chest pain on occassions. He did ask if I had pain at the moment and I said no. H e said I could go into hospital if I wanted but I said no.
He also mentioned that sometimes pericarditis could show changes on an ECG, I have had pericarditis secondary to Lupus on several occassions. I often get pain in my chest and shoulder but think nothing because of the joint pain I sometimes get with the Lupus.
He has referred me to a clinic on the 22nd of this month.
Does anyone have any idea what these changes could mean. My doc said he didn't think it was angina because I don't get short of breath but he couldn't be sure.
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks .
