I have had an abnormal ekg for years but lately i have been getting out of breath with pain in both arms when playing golf.

Went in and had the Abnormal echocardiogram and nuclear stress test. Doc says he is 85% sure i have blockage in the artery feedeeding the lower part of heart.

We have schedule a heart catheterization next week. Right now i have a pretty bad cough and do not know if that will mean a delay in the test.

Anyway, it may be my mind, but the tighness, out of breath and pain in the arms seem a lot worse. Don't know if that is because i know something may be wrong or it is really worse.

I little nervouse right now about what is happening to me.

Don

Had the angioplasty and they found no blockage greater than 30%

I am still having bad symptoms. Chest preasure, pain, arm pain, general chest discomfort. It gets bad when i lie down or wheni am playing golf but it is there about 60% of the time. It is making me feel real bad.

I was taking provastatin but stopped because of back pain. That has been the case with most statins.

Incurrently take:

Tricor 145 mg – Dr. DeBroeck – Since 2001 (Cholesterol)

Zetia 10 mg - Dr. Kadakia (Cholesterol)

Nexium 40 mg – Dr. DeBroeck – Since 2001 (Stomach)

Benicar 20 mg – Dr. DeBroeck & Dr. Kadakia (blood preasure)

Pravastatin 20 mg - Dr Kadakia (Cholesterol) Stopped

* Tramadol Daily last couple years

* Skelaxin Daily last couple years

* Minoxidil Daily last couple years

* Testim 1% - Dr. DeBroeck

Vitiman D – Dr. DeBroeck

Baby Aspirin - Dr. Kadakia

Imam hoping these drugs are causing a lot of the problems. I see the cardiologist on Tuesday.

Any suggstions on what to ask, test i could ask about having?

Thanks
Don
