I am normally involved in the prostate cancer forum, but now need some help here please?
Went for a pushbike ride on the weekend and maybe over done it a bit and felt a bit dizzy.
My wife insisted we call the ambulance.
I had no symptoms at all [besides the dizziness] no chest pain nothing, but the Ambos did put me on the cardio machine and told me I was in Afib. Once in the ambulance the Afib went and my heart returned to normal.
Once at hospital they took blood and told me my troponin levels where slightly elevated.
1st test - 0.062
2nd test - 0.108
3rd test- 0.051
All test done over a 18 hr period.
I ask the Doctor had I had a heart attack, and he said no. But my question is, I thought when any amount of
troponin is released into the blood, indicated a Myocardial Infarction??
Advice appreciated Please
