Heart Health

Went for a Combo(nuclear and regular) stress test today. During the "work" portion of the nuclear part, at the 3 minute mark I started to have a moderate radiating pain in my upper chest  (just below my collarbone and to the right)  that went burning up my neck. I rated it around a 5 out of 10. It passed quickly and then into the 2nd half of the 4 minute mark it happened again only much stronger. A 7 or 8. Test was stopped and an ultrasound done immediately.  Anyone else??? Wont be seeing the cardiologist for 2 weeks.  :(

Yes, and the ultrasound showed wall impairment for me due to a blockage in a coronary artery. In my case it was the circumflex with a 90% blockage near the bottom. Took 2 stents and it was fine after that.
