So I had a scare. But saw the doctor today and feel a bit relieved. I had a bad EKG then a bad ultrasound. Got tested again and then doctor said I was ok. Went from bad heart rhythm. Had ultrasound that said I had a bad heart valve. Then ultrasound said I had coronary artery disease. Saw a different doctor. EKG was normal. Had another ultrasound of my neck and she said things were much better than the first one.
Problem is. I have some bad symptoms past couple years. I've suffered panic and anxiety since I was 14. I'm 33. But past couple years they got worse. And I knew it was panic. But when I got those bad test results I got scared. Anyway. Doctor says I'm fine. But she gave me a copy of my report and maybe it's just the way it's worded has me confused. I don't know.
Anyone else have this to shed some light on my situation?
What has me confused are the numbers and because of what's written.
1. Minimal elevated velocity in the left internal cartid artery. No significant stenosis is appreciated.
2. No significant stenosis by velocity criteria in the right internal cartid artery.
Left IC/CC ratio 1 right IC/CC ratio 1.2
I'm so confused
