Unpredeictable: As your age is 22, after reaching 198, you are predisposed to Cardiac arrythmias, instead of normal heart beat,,, abnormal unhealthy heart contractions appear which can potentially make the heart to go to arrest.

Is it that rare for a 27-30 year old male to have a heart attack? Does it make it even rarer if they had recent normal ekg/stress/echo?No fam hist

Yes, rare: Hi. Yes it's rare for a 27-30 yo male to have a heart attack (MI). And, yes, it's even rarer if he has no family history of premature MI and a recently negative stress echo; EKG is not a good screening test for risk of MI, but can often diagnose a current or past MI. ...Read more

Do I still have to worry for my chest pain even if I have normal 2deho Jan 2013, ecg, treadmill stress test I'm always thinking of heart attack/stroke?

Do I still have to worry for my chest pain even if I have normal 2deho Jan 2013, ecg, treadmill stress test I'm always thinking of heart attack/stroke?

low risk: You are really very unlikely to have heart disease even before you had a normal echo and stress test. Young females are very low risk for heart disease, esp since you don't smoke. Is your blood pressure and cholesterol levels normal? I think reassurance is the best course of action now as more testing will just expose you to radiation and cost $ and will most likely be normal. ...Read more
