ST Depression, Sclerotic Aorta Leaflets

I recently had a stress test that showed "non diagnostic st depression".  Everything else was normal.  My echocardiogram came back normal, but when I read the report it said "mildly sclerotic aortic leaflets".  I am 52, female, healthy.  I had these tests due to pvcs (that I have had for 13 years). I can't get in to see a cardiologist for 4 weeks.  My general practice doctor has been non commital as to whether I should continue with my normal exercise routine or not.  She is also "an alarmist" sometimes.   I take 240mg of Verapamil a day.  Could this be the cause of the st depression?  Can the sclerotic aorta be reversed with diet and exercise?

Thank you for the hel
