Heart Muscle relaxants

I have just returned home from hospital with many questions reguarding my heart. I have been having chest pain left side of chest with pain radiating down my left arm and sometimes into neck.  EKG's and blood work, as well as cath. done with no finding of heart problems, however, my stress echo showed severe hypertension and some damage due to a possible mild heart attack.
I was sent home with continued pain in chest area with a calcium beta blocker drug to maybe eleviate heart muscle spasms.and to enlarge small veins around the heart.
Is this truly what could be causing the pain, or are they just guessing?  My blood pressure usually maintains 170/98.

Sustained blood pressure elevation of the sort you describe could lead to chest discomfort, even with normal coronary arteries. I agree that blood pressure control is now the key to your further medical management.
