Chris in VA Posted August 9, 2012 Share Posted August 9, 2012 Ds is doing well in Asheville. He even has the support of one of the most wonderful WTM women!! He is still having heart pain. He's had this off and on for months--like a stabby/sqeezy sometimes like a hot needle type pain. It is not muscular (chest muscles, anyway). He had an echo, and exercise/stress echo thingy, and a nuclear stress test last week. They can't find anything wrong with his valves, his heart, etc. thru these tests. Taking certain illicit drugs can lead to this heart pain, but we can't find info WHY--what is not functioning correctly. He does have an abnormal EKG (the 12 lead or whatever the big one is), but the first cardiologist here before the move said it just could be Ds' normal one. IIRC, he had an abnormality before the drugs. The cardiologist is stumped--So any ideas what we should do next? Ds is frustrated and feels they don't know what they are doing--well, they don't, but it is not up to us to find out what is wrong! Shouldn't they keep testing some other way? It's not normal to have pain like this every day, or nearly so, is it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
