I had a borderline/normal stress test 2 years ago.Dr.saw slight shadow.Cardiologist gave me option to have heart cath or not.I chose to not.I'm getting another stress test done in a few weeks to check on if the shadow is still there(maybe was nothing 2 years ago) or has progressed.It was showing on the front portion of my heart.My question is this......if this had been an actual shadow showing a small blockage 2 years ago,wouldn't it have caused something worse by now?
I do get a pain above my heart,below my collar bone that feels like it's about
6 inches long,then my arm hurts.It may last seconds to a minute or 2.Does that sound like angina?I do have spine problems but am playing it safe,seeing cardio July 30th and getting another test.
If anyone has had experience with either of the questions I have,I would sure like hearing your story.
