    Question Angiogram and possible stent

    I have been having some chest pains and pressure for three weeks. I went to see my dr and she sent me to cardiologist. Everything seemed normal with the different tests until I had a stress test. I started having a charley horse in the back of one leg. So they gave me the meds to stimulate heart. I started vomiting and feeling like passing out. My heart had a sinus pause for 4 seconds so they sent me to er and admitted overnight. The doctor now wants to do an angiogram and stent if any clogging. He said heart is good but they couldn't see one area of the left artery. That's scheduled in three weeks. I feel worn out since the stress test. I am concerned and worried. I am a classroom teacher, 57 years old, overweight. What should I know.

    by now you had the test and results. I didn't think the angiogram was as bad as I feared it would be. I got a stent and feel better than I had in months. I hope you did well and are recovering. Let us know how you are.
