Simply put, there is an area in the muscle between the chambers of your heart that would indicate that under stress does not get enough oxygen presumably due to a blockage. The good news is that it is reversible meaning it goes away with rest so the blockage could well be treated with meds, only your cardiologist can say for sure.

Do you have a follow up with your doctor?
