What does thickening around the heart mean?
I"m a little worried about this. My ekg and my echo was good but my stress test
was a little abnormal they said. I'm having a ct scan done.

Thickening around the heart is very non specific, but it could mean thickening of the outer covering of yor heart called the pericardium. It is a rare condition and if your ekg and echo are completely normal chances of significant problems from such a condition are low. The CT scan will help in finding out if you have any abnormal thickening of your pericardium.
