troponin level of 0.19. Good or bad?

I went into the emergency room on 9/12/12 with chest pain so dr did following tests....ekg, chest xray troponin level and everything came back normal but the troponin level was elevated at 0.18 so i was transferred by ambulance to bigger hosp icu unit and when i got there my troponin level was normal. So discharged next day - they did ultrasound of heart and that too was normal so no more tests needed. Go home and just not feeling very well tired no energy just blah. So on Thursday 9/20/12 i go outside and cut down some flowers and feel ok, then dig up 3 areas to transplant more flowers and when doing this i got chest pain back and so decided to stop doing that and go inside and rest and pain went away not totally but better, so i called cardiologist and they stated that i need to see my general dr so today i went in and insisted that they check troponin again and this time it came back at 0.19 also have a cardiolyte stress test for 9/26/12 . hope someone can help me with this. Tired of feeling like this and having this chest pain with no answers. I am to take it easy and see what happens

Re: troponin level of 0.19. Good or bad?

Your test results are usually considered normal if the results are:
•Troponin I : less than 10 µg/L
•Troponin T : 0–0.1 µg/L

Troponin levels may remain high for 1 to 2 weeks after a heart attack.

Normal troponin levels 12 hours after chest pain has started mean a heart attack is unlikely.

Thanks so much for your input, but today I'm still feeling BLAH - tired, still having pain in my chest (taking it easy like dr stated, but try to do something and just feel weak) I just can't shake this feeling that there is something wrong with my heart even though all the other HEART tests are negative. I guess that i wait and see what the cardiolyte stress test reveals on Wednesday. Thanks again

I know it's hard, but try not to worry.

Good luck with your stress test.
