User avatar Hi lis_babe,
There are such an overwhelming amount of unanswered posts that already exists, that it was the hope of the administration, that the current posts would be answered prior to new members being able to sign up. This, of course, is temporary. Hopefully, those that are searching for information, will view the forums and find the answers they are searching for, as there is a wealth of information available. If abnormalities were evident on the other diagnostic studies, I am sure that further diagnostics such as an angiogram would be a warranted procedure to identify any abnormalities, ie., narrowing, blockage, etc.
