Angina tests

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi, i have a feeling of something stuck under my left rib and if I exert myself at certain times it feels as if it’s being pulled tight & then I get pains in my back, arms & jaw, this all subsides if I stop moving my arms. I thought I had a hernia but my doctor sent me for a ecg & stress test at the hospital but they couldn’t do it as the reading for the ecg displayed a reading different to the one done at the Drs surgery. The hospital is sending me for a echocardiogram & a CT angiogram plus I have to wear a 24 hour monitor. Before I went to the Drs (thinking I had a hernia) I was bouncing along happily, now I think every twinge is to do with my heart 🙄. Has anybody else had this feeling of something being stuck under their ribs associated with angina, I think it’s to do with my stomach. My mind is thinking is it or isn’t it?. Thanks for reading. I’m 58 & female.
