For the past 6 months I have had a tight feeling in my left chest, sometimes to the left of my chest, and sometimes more in the middle. I have seen a cardiologist, and had an Echocardiogram, Multiple EKG's, a 24 hour holter monitor, a stress test and a stress echo in addition to a CT Angiography.
All has come back normal. I still have the tightness in my chest and I feel short of breath a lot of the time. Other symptoms I am experienceing are lightheadeness, and fatigue.
Can this still be a heart problem, or do those tests rule that out?
I've been having the same symtoms: chest pain like yours, fatigue, but no headache or sob. I also had EKG, stress test, stress echo, regular echo, full body scan...all came back normal; although, the regular echo's suspected that i might have pulmonary hypertention because the pa pressure was 41mmgHg. I was terrifed, but the cardiologist assured me that i don't have pulmonary hypertention because the 41mmgHg was an overestimation (he said the technician who did the echo measured it wrong). But still, i'm still worried about having pulmonary hypertention.
Any thing new on your part? I'm still feeling worried cause last night the fatigue really got me right before bed time...i meant i feel so tired (no energy at all and the chest tightness was there when it happened...right now, my family doctor thinks that i have anxiety and sleep problem.
