A 17-year-old male asked:

If used properly: Glycerin irritates the bowel lining, causing it to secrete fluids that help relieve constipation. It has no direct cardiac effects. If used to the point that it causes severe diarrhea, there can be changes in your electrolytes which can cause abnormal heart rhythm changes. The insertion of a suppository in the rectum can cause vagal nerve stimulation, rarely resulting in low heart rate and BP
A 42-year-old male asked:

Need more evaluation: Being a diabetic certainly increases your risk of developing coronary artery disease. I don't know if you may have other risk factors, as well. Also, I don't know what type of stress test you had; some are more sensitive at detecting problems than others. All stress tests can have false negatives, though, and if your symptoms are persistent, you should see your doctor for further evaluation.
A 65-year-old female asked:

Many possibilities: Many different problems, including your anxiety, could cause these symptoms. Need to see a physician to check your blood pressure and pulse. May need blood work to exclude thyroid or other metabolic problems. May need to wear a monitor to exclude intermittent abnormal heart rhythms. May need further evaluation to make sure your chest pain is not due to decreased blood flow to your heart.
