| | Chest tightness?
I've had several episodes over the last 1.5 yrs of tightness in my upper back and chest. I have had two stress tests (one nuclear, one standard) Echo, ECGs, etc.. everything came out great. I have normal blood pressure, do not smoke, am a little overweight for my frame.. 32 yrs old. My father had a heart attack and bypass when he was 46; but he was seriously overweight and a heavy smoker / high stress.
I called my doctor tonight and told him of this latest episode. He felt confident that it was not my heart and told me to take 3 advils. He told me that heart attacks dont' exhibit symptoms that last for 1-2 days.
I truly belive it's skeletal-muscular related but I am a worry-wart.
Anways, I guess my question is... Should I worry about this more.. should I put faith in the stress tests (the last one, the non-nuclear one) was back in May.
Would love to hear your advice,
