I'm still nervous about my constant angina. Now I'm having terrible back pain. Does anyone else have both of these? I had an EKG in Dec. which was ok, and an echocardiogram in Feb. My hemo today didn't mention the echo so I guess that it was ok. Am I being paranoid or should I request from my GP a stress test? I have had this chest pressure/achiness since November. Is the back pain related? Thanks for any help!

Sometime, Dr forgot to look at. It happened to me. When I was inpatient, they asked for a blood test. I asked them what about the last one (few weeks ago)? Good or bad? No dr answered! After an hour, the nurse came back with a cup of tablets (A CUPFUL) for me. Last blood test wasn't good! I refused other blood test because no one was going to read!
Back pain can go along with it. When you say constant angina do you mean that the pain never goes away? Angina in my case was a come and go thing usually brought on by exertion but also occuring sometimes at rest, but never constant.

Thanks for the reply! Yes, my angina is almost an everyday constant achiness and pressure. Not brought on by exertion and I have it even lying down. I'm tired of worrying about it! I called my GP today and am going on Tuesday. Did you have a stress test? Thanks!
Your back pain is at the upper back or lower back? Mine is at the upper back, only likes needle poking for 2 or 3 times, it starts with SOB first, then pain, then drownzy. After few minutes, it starts the cycle again and again....
Does your back pain wake you up from sleep? I hope you sort out soon, keep us posting.
I never have a stree test in my life. I had a back pain (not sure is in the middle or lower) It hurt (like killing me) when you move in the certain position. It healed after one week, by using the TCM treatment (included the massage). They said my kidneys were very weak at that time. You take care.
