Re: Well I am back! I am now having constant chest tightness again, need advice pleas

Might I suggest you view the "My Experience with Cardiologists" thread on this board. You will note that Wordworks2001 had chest tightness caused by high blood pressure when he exerted himself. His resting BP was normal, but upon one minute of exertion, it became dangerously high. Despite the fact he has two of his coronary arteries 100% blocked, his heart was in great shape due to the body's ability to bypass blocked vessels on its own through angiogenesis or revascularization. His doctor started him on medications that keep his BP in the 100/64 to 90/56 range and the chest tightness completely disappeared.
