Does anyone ever experience pain (not sharp, just continuous) between the shoulder blades and a feeling that someone is hugging you too tight? I have this w/only even slight exertion or walking. I had a cath on 11/16/06 where I was diagnosed w/coronary artery disease. My BP & HR are now under control, so I see my cardio on 12/6/06 again to discuss doing another cath since my BP/HR are controlled. He said that it could be something else, but would not know until we go back in and do the stent/angioplasty. If you have something like this and it isn't your heart, could you let me know? I'm looking for a last reprieve before another cath.
My arrythmias are very erradicative and easily set off, so I'm nervous about
another cath. Thanks for your input.
