Hey all - so I've been having some scary symptoms lately and am just really unsettled by it all. Past couple of weeks Ive been flat out exhausted and have had consistent burning pains between my shoulder blades that are going up to my neck and sometimes down to my elbows. I have high blood pressure and am overweight. I also have an awful cardiac family history...mom had heart disease. I am only 28 but have had occasional angina for years that doctors attributed to the high blood pressure. I went to the cardiologist last week and had a stress test and echo, I am supposed to get the results tomorrow. That being said, I am scared to death that I am having pre-heart attack symptoms .... I know even if the results from my stress test and echo are good that I could still have heart disease..

Are my symptoms pre heart attack symptoms?

How can I convince my docs to do further testing? I would like to push for a ct angiogram to see inside of my heart....

hey there, welcome, I posted the other day, internet kept dropping out because of savage fires in my state. I would recommend bloods, esp cholesterol and lipids. other markers can be seen with bloods. hey, you aint going to be sent home if ya going to drop dead and get a toe tag. they tried with me, twice!! talk of your symptoms, hi bp is not good, get that bugger down. let us know of the results. sorry for the late reply. forum slow at times. take care.
