After struggling with docs for few month over this I thought I would turn to the wider world some input. I am a 30 year old, healthy (enough) male who has been getting intermitment, frequent chest pains for few month now
The pain is localised to the left side my chest in heart area and in the middle of the chest. i have blood pressure medicine amaldopine 5 mg and propranolol 20 mg when i need it. propranolol 20 mg can help alot but i take it only when i need it but the general doctor want me to take it 40 mg twice a day. but i don't take it regularly i because slow the heart rate and make me feel sleepy and tired. I have had EkGs 3 times, 2 CT chest, chest xrays , echo ,and stress test while running on treadmil and at rest. that have all been fine, and i am not affected at all during exercises. the pain always at rest all the time feeling pressure in the middle of the chest chest make me not relaxing and ancious. the cardiology want do CT coronary ango he said if this test is normal means your heart is fine but i am concern about the radiation from CT test as i didn't many tests before and all cumalative for radaition and increase risk of cancer. i am not sure if i do this test and i cam not satsified about previous test as the cardilogy didn't confirm if my heart is fine or no as the pain still constent . I am scared that I will just drop dead from a heart attack
I am at a compltete loss and doctors have been no help.
Any help/thoughts/insight/advice would be seriously welcome!
