Hi there!

Bothe high blood pressure and increased cholesterol could be responsible to it causing degeneration of the inner wall of the vessel and associated dystrophic calcification.
Hope this information is useful.

Take care!

DrKaul,

I am so sorry. I meant no high blood pressure and cholesterol or any type of illness.

Is this unusual for someone my age?

I also have chest pain, back pain. This all gets activated by  any type of stress (Physical or Mental).
Lets basically put it this way. I have all the symptoms of Coronary heart disease.
-Chest pain
-Shortness of breath
-Back pain
-Faintness
-Feel like vomiting


I am in good shape.

I had an EKG,  and stress test that were both negative, but I am still experiencing these symptoms. Since I don't have insurance, I cant go further in testing cause of the price.I am afraid of dying. What can I do?
