I am 38 year old male.
I had a goal this summer to run 100 miles (not all at once). Around mile 88, I started to have chest pains. They were first diagnosed as reflux, none of those treatments helped. Endoscopy looked good. Had chest xray, that looked good. I had one troponin draw that came back 0.11. Then was 0.6 next day or two.
I did the stress/echo. It showed normal ECG and echo at rest. Showed ejection fraction at 60%.
With exercise, it showed abnormal ST-T flat approx. 1mm in leads II, III and avF (which I know means anterior).
The echo during exercise showed hypokinesis mid-anterior, mid anteroseptal, apical anterior and apical cap. Says left ventricular ejection fraction increases. The left ventricular chamber decreases.
Both findings compatible with ischemia.
I am calling the cardiologist tomorrow (as its the weekend). Have an appt scheduled but my doc wants me to get in earlier.
So I am obviously worried. From what I gather, it sounds like a blockage perhaps in LAD (which I found out is called widowmaker
) I am obviously getting this looked into ASAP...but am having a ton of anxiety about
making it to doctor. I do not have any chest pains as I have not exerted myself...does anyone have any insight or advice?
