My fiance is 38yo........has been complaining of chest pain right above the nipple for several weeks. His cholesterol is above normal (it has dropped since talking red yeast rice for 5 months,, but still in abnormal range).......I think it is 220's now.His BP is high at dr's visits.......130/90's, at home it is always 120/80 or below usually 117/75 range. His Doc wants him to start meds for high blood pressure. He has a family history of heart related problems........his uncle had a heart attack at 38yo.......died last year at 55 but of lou Gehrigh's disease. His dad died at 57yo.........had several heart attacks previously , was a smoker and cause of death was cardiovascular collapse.. His youngest uncle had stents put in a few years ago......in early 40's,,,,,,,, was really tired....went to doc.......and they saw blockages. My fiance does not smoke......drinks very little but considering his weight gain over the last 5 years and family history I am concerned. I have made an appt w/ his regular dr and also an appt with a dr to do a sleep study for apnea. Is the chest pain alone a sign........or is it his anxiety? He takes 10mg lexapro/day for anxiety.
