I'm a 29 yr old male, last year I had my blood pressure checked and it was high . I then got on BP meds and also started having chest pains. I've had numerous ecg, also echo, nuclear stress and all that. The cardio Doctor told me I'm just a guy with high BP, nothing wrong. Fast forward a year later I went in to talk to him again, with chest pain, he gave me another ecg, he said the symptoms sound like an acid reflux issue ( every once in awhile stabbing pain in rib cage, sometimes feels like fluttering and heartburn )
Both my parents are heavy smokers, no history of cardio issues, at the time I went in all my cholesterol levels were good, low body fat from going to the gym many hours a week, etc
Doctor wants me to have a CTA of heart tomorrow with contrast, problem is I know it's a ton of radiation, not to mention it costs a lot . My chest pain has decreased since then, I was wondering on opinion weather or not I should move forward and just get it?
Edit: I should mention I had chest pain so bad last year I went to the er, and it there ecg showed nothing either
