I recently had an episode where I woke with severe chest pains. To make a long story short, I ended up passing out. I also felt uncoordinated. I saw a gastro doctor a couple weeks later and she got me into a heart doctor the next day.
I'm in the process of tests. The EKG was abnormal, the echo showed mild regurtitation in three valves (mitral, tricuspid and pulmonary and also aortic sclerosis. Also carotid arteries showed less than %50 stenosis. I haven't seen doctor for results. I'm having a stress test this week. Should I be concerned about the test results or is it all minor? I've never had heart problems, had chest pain many times thinking it was reflux. I do have lupus.
