Angina and being tired

Posted , 2 users are following.

hi all, i had a nuclear stress test last November after having chest pains during exercise. The results came back negative, but I have had chest pain again today while gardening. I have had a rough weekend, with my other half diagnosed with a PE, we went to A&E last night and got home at 4:00am. iI have also forgotten to take my candesartan for the last 2 days. could the tiredness (and not taking bp meds) cause angina symptoms? or is it stress?

any advice appreciated, i am worried about my other half and the last thing i need is bring ill.

    Hi so the hospital didn't diagnose angina when you went, what did they say it was.

    Chest pain can be very scarey but it can be something very simple, costochondritis is very common and is quite umpleasant.

    Muscular chest pain is also nasty and it can make anxiety kick which makes it harder to except its not something far worse

      Hi AlexandriaGizmo,

      Sorry for the delay in replying, my Wife was rushed back into hospital again so I come second (by choice). I have spoken to my GP who informed me that the stress test came back fine. There were no signs of blockages in arteries around the heart. The results showed that my heart was ok and no sign of weakness so it is back to square one.

      No far from being back to square one your now in a position to look at the bigger picture and find the reason for chest pain that is looking less likely to be cardiac related, did your doc actually comment on what he thinks might be the cause of the pain, did he want to refer you to see anyone else, do more tests or did he consider it to be stress related

      I hope your wife is on the mend
