So I've been to the doctors office several times - I've had blood tests done, BP measured each time, all that good stuff - I don't mind sharing that information and hope it's okay to share all manner of health information here, and I'd like to share all of this just to give everyone a better idea of my general health - Which is overall decent.
BP Average - High 130's over 80's at the doctors office, home machines report a bit lower systolic ( and at times up to 10 points )
HDL - 36
LDL - 130
Triglycerides - 105
Total Cholesterol - 187
Had a comprehensive metabolic panel, a thyroid panel, blood count and such and everything came back normal.
A couple normal EKG's, and normal Stress Echo/EKG results.
I've been looking into explaining my chest pain as musculoskeletal, but as far as my own studies go I haven't found anything that sounds just like what's happening, and no doctor has given any indication of such - They just wanted more to check out my heart.
It seems the very worst when I'm jogging, and moving around a lot - The pain isn't really consistent or the same all the time, though it's quite often an unpleasant pressure feeling occurring mostly in the area that my left pectoral muscle takes up, but sometimes I feel dull aches a bit higher like under my collar bone - From mid chest, to near the arm pit. The worst sharp pain I've felt happened in/around the middle of my pectoral muscle.
Simply jogging most of the time will cause this pain to occur, though it does seem to get better when I stop the jogging ( within seconds, while my heartbeat is still fast )
Curious - if I try other forms of exercise that use different muscle groups, say a stationary bike - I would get the same chest pain regardless of the use of any muscle group, if it's cardiac related, yeah? I've been given no restrictions, so as far as a practitioner is concerned, I'm safe to try these things out.
Then there's this lightheadedness - It seems the worst when I'm sitting/lying down, and particularly when driving. Exercise doesn't seem to lessen it, nor worsen it. It varies from slightly light-headed, to feeling as if I could faint. It almost seems as if eating a lot of sugar might help, but I really don't imagine it could be blood sugar related - my A1C was 5.1% and my readings while lightheaded seemed all over the place, so it's possible I'm just making an incorrect correlation of things. ( As in, my lowest readings in the mid 80's weren't always different from my higher readings in the 120's, 130's. ) But, I have no idea if it could be nutritional. I recently have changed my diet a lot - From pizza and energy drinks, to salmon with veggies type of change.
Anyways, if you'd like any more details go ahead and ask - I'm just looking to see if anyone has been through similar, or has any suggestions of things I could test, or ask my doctor about
