I was having trouble with palpatations and other symptoms, so had an ECG, wore Holtor Monitor and an Echo done, the only thing they found were PVC's and tachycardia.
The troublesome thing is I am having chest pain, exhaustion, and shortness of breath upon exertion. The doctor is now sending me back to see the Cardiologist and wants me to have an exercise stress test.
My question is after having all of the above tests, is a stress test the test to diagnose Angina or Ishemia? Could this condition be missed after having the other tests that all came back normal?
My chest pain is not severe pain, more like a heaviness, pressure in my chest, with intermittant pain now and again, it started just at night, but I see has progressed to the daytime as well. Like a chronic pressure, chest discomfort.
Being a doc. yourself would you also be sending me for these other tests, would you suspect Angina/Ishemia?
