Question: Chest Pain Again
|eddyboy - Mon Dec 27, 2004 8:56 pm||
Went for mile run tonight and the pain reappeared perhaps more severely than ever before. I feel it in the middle of chest(sternum area) all the way down under my arm pit to my back.
Saw my primary today and he did ekg on me. He said there maybe some irregularity so he prescribed stress test.

Even though it is unlikely that your chest pain is due to coronary disease with your history of running and leading a healthy life style with nor medical risk factors even though i will suppose that you have a negative family history for coronary disease, i would personally prefer not to have a stress test since your ekg showed some abnormality and your chest pain sounds typical.
i would prefer that you see a cardiologist to decide whether or not to go directly to a coronary angiogram.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
