Over the past few years I have been experiencing episodic chest/left arm pain, tingling and exhaustion with excercise /long working days/ cold weather . With Few trips to A and E . I am afraid to excercise now. I am a healthy weight and am 36yo.
I have had an echocardiogram, excercise stress test and 24hr ecg monitor. Apart from a few flutters those tests came back all clear. I Have also had a CT angiogram which was clear. HOWEVER, they did not test me for a calcium score at the time i did the Ct scan as i am "too young for that on NHS"
My cholesterol levels are fine but my LPa cholesterol was extremly high at 1244mg/
I am still getting the same symptoms and am wondering if it is possible to miss something on the CT SCAN ,because I did not get a calcium score. I cant find an answer to this anywhere as most people seem to get a calcium score with a ct angiogram.
Now everytime I go to doc with symptoms he ignores them because of all the tests ive had,
I have a hiatal hernia and IBS which im hoping may be the real case, but the symptoms are holding me back from excersing again which I used to love?
I live in UK,
