After months of complaining about heart problems finally saw cardiologist today who said that during a stress test on treadmill my heart showed cramping, he said it may be a blocked artery stopping blood flow, so I now have to have a CT scan. Some docs are easy to question others just look at you, I did not feel able to ask as many questions as I wanted, did ask if I was likely to be more at risk of heart attack or stroke he said no more than anyone else. I am due to fly in 2 weeks time and he said no problems just don't lift heavy cases (why?) he also said that as my risk was low not to worry as this test shows this in a lot of women due to breasts? He has given me asthma tablets to slow heart rate down for scan, but what side effects will they give me? Feel worried as I am 56 overweight with a bmi of 34 and due to having reflux and diverticular (god I sound unhealthy) struggle with diet, so anyone else have this, if so what did you change or add to your lifestyle to help? Thanks
