I went in to the doctor for blood work and a physical. I have a history of GURD and was having pain on the right side of my chest and it felt like my throat was raw and closing up.
Dr. did an EKG, it came back with *non-specific T wave abnormailities*..he told me I needed a stress test. My coloestrol is down to 166 now. Went to have the stress test and the PA just listened to me and scheduled a chemical stress test.They also did a Thyroid panel (normal), echocarigram (within normal limits) and a holter (Dr. said nothing worrisome) (I've had a regular stress test before 9 years ago and they found nothing other than etopic beats benign...holter was normal and so was echocaridgram)I've taken varelan for 9 years for the *added beat* and HBP.
Well to say the least I'm driving my BP up because of the ...what if's...I have the test in 3 days.
When they ordered the test they told me to not run any 10 mile marathtons and just laughed, that was 3 weeks ago. They say they are doing this because the calicum channel blockers *blunt* the regular stress test and I have risk factors so they want to make sure I don't have damage or blockage.....I wish they hadn't said that last part.
I need some real advice but don't scare the bejebbers out of me. I can't take much more.
