your Troponin level goes up when you have a heart attack.Here are some examples of mine
12/13/12 12/14/12 9/7/13 9/7/13 9/7/13


1.27 CH 0.88 CH 2.49 CH 3.44 CH 2.72 CH

It's a simple blood test.Anything over .6 indicates a heart attack.it will soon drop back to normal.

Here is my latest ECG from last week
Component Standard Range Your Value Flag
VENTRICULAR RATE 64
ATRIAL RATE 64
QRS DURATION 108
Q-T INTERVAL 428
QTCINT 441
P AXIS -3
R AXIS 85
T AXIS -50
DIAGNOSIS DX: 786.50 Chest pain, unspecified
Normal sinus rhythm
T wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia
Abnormal ECG
When compared with ECG of 15-JUN-2015 00:42,
No significant change was found.

Just do what Turtle says and listen to your Doctor and ask plenty of questions.

That's nearly exactly like my ecg! Read your other post about looking at your arteries. What vascular history do you have?
