This is my first post, so please forgive any mistakes.
I've been experiencing chest pain for a week and a half now, and went to the ER Thursday morning after waking up with nausea, pain in my arm, my jaw sort of numb, and chest pain. EKG, blood work, and scans were all normal. They said I should follow up with my cardiologist, which I'm doing tomorrow. I am scared of what he might find. Ive been exhausted this week, with chest pain and pressure most of the time. It's all I can think about too. And the 'what ifs'.
I did a stress test around a year ago and one part was abnormal, but he wasn't concerned because I don't smoke, non-diabetic, 40 year old woman, good cholesterol. I guess my only risk factor is my weight. He said the next step would be an angiogram, but he wanted to hold off, try Bp meds to see if that helped my high BP.
Anyway I guess the point of this post is to ask for any similar experiences. And advice. I feel pretty down at the moment.
