Palpitations, breathing and chest pain

Posted By Betsy Howard on May 24, 1999 at 12:06:14
I have had palpitations for over 2 years now. A cardiac cath showed a 30% blockate in the ant. desc.  I am on 100 mg of toprol twice a day.  About a month ago I started having recurring palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath and coughing with shortness of breath.  My cardiologist had a stress echo done and it came out clean.  Now I am being told that nothing can be done for this problem.  It is extremely uncomfortable and since I am a flute player, I find it hard to get air at times and I have chest pain after playing for about an hour.  Should I seek another opinion or just live with it like I'm told.  What about exercise?
