I am 36 ex smoker not overweight, normal cholesterol, not diabetic. 2 weeks ago I was admitted to hospital with atypical heart attack symptoms. Aching jaw and ear, mild chest ache, back pain and left arm pain along with vomiting. My tropinin levels were raised at 12 and then 12 hours later at 20000 which although high not massive. My ecg, ekg, and x ray were all normal. I then had an angiogram expecting as well as the Dr's that there would be a blockage. Low and behold they say my heart is pristine.
After 5 days in ccu I was discharged but was put on statins, nitrates, aspirin and diltiazem.
They think it may have been a spasm but they want to investigate further.
This is causing me massive anxiety issues, they wonder if maybe a small clot has slipped through the net or it may be something else. I am having an MRI soon.
My panic attacks are through the roof with the not knowing and I got readmitted last night but strangely my tropinin levels are back to normal which shocked my cardiologist. I am now on diazapam and temazapan.
Anybody help with this at all. What else would have caused all them symptoms and the raised troponin?
