Sorry to hear. So, they did some tests in the ER which all were fine. This is good news but am sorry you still suffer symptoms. Your age is on your side though as you are young. Advanced age is a risk factor and you are far from that. But this is not to say something isn't going on.
While the ER is great, it's to take care of the acute situation. So, they are going to make sure you aren't having a heart attack IN their waiting room . . . but they aren't going to clear you like your regular doctor or a cardiologist would. I'd see your regular doctor next. Make an appointment to go over your symptoms. Let him see the test results from your ER visit too. He may help you figure out why you have the pain or he may refer you to a cardiologist for a stress test or something like that.
Get the all clear from your regular doc. Let us know if you can set that appointment up and how soon.
So, they do no exams? I mean, you 'could' bypass and go straight to a cardiologist who may give you a stress test and ekg. But at some point, it may well be determined this is anxiety. I know that isn't what you want to hear but unfortunately, our body and mind can play tricks on us in the name of high anxiety. We worry about our heart . . . we feel pain in our chest.
Anxiety is a treatable medical condition just like cardiac issues. Remember that.
See the cardiologist so you know if you need to work on anxiety or if all the doctor's you've seen are wrong. Let me know how it goes.
Hi there. I am not a doctor but will offer an opinion. Have you had a chest X Ray? Its possible something could be going on like plureisy? Its just that the blood coming up is a possible sign. It may go away on its own or need medication. You seem to feel that ever small pain is a major illness. It may be a little anxiety or stress that makes you feel this. Its a bit like you have a pain in your toe, the first thing you think or see when you google it is cancer! can you see what I am saying. We jump 20 steps ahead of whats actually going on. Its understandable but I am just trying to get you to take a look at the bigger picture? Hope this helps
You need the following to start
- v/q scan
- pft ( with lung volumes and dlco)
