Good Morning! I'm new here and looking for some help. I recently have been worked up and cleared for a blockage in my heart. Both my large and small arteries are clear; I had the cardiac catherization done. Good thing! I'm now in the process of getting a CT scan of my chest to rule out something wrong with my thymus gland and an ultrasound of my throid.
I'm still expericencing chest pressure upon exertion, doing normal day to day housework, loading the dishwasher, doing dishes, going up and down stairs. I tire very easily, I get dizzy standing and walking. If I rest the symptoms do subside. I'm just wondering if anyone else experinced anything like this prior to or after diagnosis.
I'm a 52 yr old female, I work full time, yes I'm overwieght but still live a very active lifestyle - walk several miles a day, and this has really slowed me down.
Thanks for reading my postand for any help you can offer.
