As the header states, I recently had a negative or ‘normal’ calcium scoring CT scan. I had one because I have awful left shoulder/neck/arm pains, most days of the week now! It’s like an aching pain and i can have it on my bicep at one hour in the day, then around my deltoid and down my tricep another hour of the day. There’s nothing that I can recall that may be causing it, at all! The sporadic ness of the pains makes no sense to an isolated tear or muscle/nerve damage.
I’m only 27, but I am terrified of becoming the next Sergei grinkov or Alexander Dale oen! (Athletes of identical ages that died due to multi coronary occlusions!!)
Anyway, I’ve had multiple resting ecgs and echocardiogram a year or so ago and they were also normal.
Now the big question is - - - if I have a normal ‘zero’ risk score on the calcium CT scan, what are the chances I have soft plaque that WASN’T picked by that?
