Hi People,,,
I have been getting chest pains for about 11 years Off n On ECG's and Bloods come back ok now they want to do a angiogram after all this time. For months i can go without any pains or pins & needles in my arm & face. Iam really worried about having the test do as risk are stroke heart attack when it might not be my heart in the first place. So worried about having 10-15 years taken of my life or living with a stroke. the heart meds that i was giving don't really work and the test is 16 days away now confused   just cant cope with this stress please help with ideas

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I am wondering what has changed to cause your Dr. to want to do an angiogram?   Have you had an Echo ECG ? 
Please do be your own best advocate and if you are unsure of what to do seek out the opinion of a second cardiologist. 
Arm yourself with all the information and make an informed consent that you feel is best for you.
I wish you the very best.
