My ex-boyfriend is a 45-year-old caucasian male. He has high blood
pressure, which was just diagnosed last year. He is taking a beta blocker.
He sometimes has chest pain when he takes deep breathes. The other night
he said the pain was "searing." He had an EKG and an electrocardiagram done
yesterday, and I think he said they came back normal. However, at that time
they discovered a heart murmur, as well as a "spot" on his lung. It turns
out he's had chest pain for 20 years, but I don't think he ever told anyone!
He hasn't been very physically active until recently; he now plays tennis
nearly daily. Also, for many years and until quite recently, he drank too
much alcohol and also took cocaine. My question is what do you think his
medical problem is, and how serious does it sound? I am concerned. Thanks.
