My chest tightness, head pressure and shortness of breath are making me feel so ill. I've noticed that when I use beta blockers (Atenenol 50mg) the chest pressure is far less. Surely that suggests that this is in fact heart disease. My cardio said that due to my age (26) the fact that I don't smoke, have normal cholesterol & BP and have no family history that coronary heart disease would be extremely unlikely. Plus the fact I have had a stress ecg, 24 hr ecg and an echo which have all come back normal. Still, I don't see how if it was just muscle tension that beta blockers would help.
Anyone experienced subdued chest discomfort after beta blockers?
As always, your thoughts and opinions would be very much appreciated.
As I'm sure you all can appreciate, I'm very, very worried that this is something seriouse (despite what the doctors say).
