have a question. My doc is confused. I have no symptoms but upper pain in my chest 2 hours after eating. I has somewhat high blood pressure and my cholesterol was slightly high. I have changed my diet completely and started a blood pressure medication, cholesterol meds and baby aspirin. My blood pressure is down to normal now running 126 over 74 sometimes in the low 130s. Since my doc got no answers from my nebular stress test, he wants to do this cath next week. My question is this, will the blood pressure effectively work if there are clogged arteries? Or would it remain high? I have read so much now about all the different heart diseases but nothing will give me that answer. I'm hoping someone here can answer this for me as I would like to think I'm going into this procedure with a good outcome. I'm confused to think that if my medicine was doing what it is suppose to do maybe I don't have clogged arteries going into this. Thank you all for assisting me with this. My dad died from heart disease.
