Re: Pain with exercise
Not to scare you, but take it easy until you get the stress test done. In my opinion, they should do it quicker than a few weeks from now. That is very irresponsible of the doctor to put it off. If you start to feel this pain when you are not exercising, or you feel that the pain is unusually worse, go to the ER right away.
I cannot stress how important it is for you to watch your symptoms and seek help if they get worse. I would call the doctor and try to get the test moved up if I were you. Do whatever you have to do, just get it done as quickly as you can.
I guess one good thing you have on your side is that you say you've exercised alot. How old are you? Height and weight? Any risk factors like smoking?
I wish you the best and good luck!
I think it would be a good idea for you to straight to the ER next time you feel this pain. At least they could give you an EKG and a few other tests, and hopefully find out whether or not you have blockages
