Hi everyone My background I suffer from ptsd with panic attacks for the past 7 years. During this time I have been to the Drs and the ER for multitude of tests which have always been normal. My symptoms were chest/ back pain high blood pressure and generally in a state of panic. After the stand ard tests I'm given an Ativan and sent home and told you are having a panic attack. Just last year I had 5 full medicals and an ER visit and they said I was fine.
Exactly 1. Month ago I went to the ER with mild chest pain that was a little different to my normal anxiety chest pain. My Ecg was normal however my troponin levels were very high and rising. I was immediately taken to the Cath lab and 2 stents were fitted to 2 arteries 1 was 80%. Blocked and the other was 75%. Apparently i had an Nstemi. I was told my EF was 45% and they considered my HA was mild. I was released from hospital 2 days later.
I went back to the ER 5 days later still with some back pain and chest pain. My troponin levels were still quite high. I was given another angiogram and was informed all looks good and my pain this time is not cardiac related.
I'm at home recovering and waiting to start cardiac rehab classes. I still get feelingsof anxiousness with mild chest/ back pain. I don't want to run to the ER everyday with this. If it escalates I will but how do you know for sure if it is just anxiety or is it another HA. I guess that's what worries me. I'm not overweight I don't smoke . I regularly exercise and eat well. Anyway that's my story I'm glad to read some of these stories they are inspiring. I hope I can contribute when I can in dealing with this new way of life.
Just 8 weeks ago I went to the hospital with SOB and other symptoms. I was in congestive heart failure just 3 weeks past my 43rd bday. My EF was 12 and the doctors were really concerned. They did so many different tests I had to look at my chart to figure out what was going on. I spent 5 days in the CCU with different doctors and specialists coming through regularly. I felt fine within 20 min of...
