Coughing After Cardiac Stress Test
I have had regular stress test. Nuclear stress test echocardiogram and heart catherization. All normal what's chance missed blockage or pulm htn?
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

Felt nauseous and short of breath during exercise. Diagnosed with GERD after normal chest x ray, ECG echo stress test. Panic attack GERD or heart?
Most commonly GERD: with normal CXR,ECG and echo, findings are less likely cardiac. Exercise has been known to trigger reflux. Figure out if its your routine (crunches on a full stomach), or diet (aggravating foods, coffee, OJ). Try some PeptoBismol before exercise to see if chnages. Keep a diary of when it happens, how you feel, and what you had to eat that morning. It will give you and your doc the best picture. ...Read more

EKG, heart enzymes, chest xray, and stress test ALL GOOD. 21, active. Occasional chest cramp/arm pain. Can I rule out a heart issue?
Almost: can rule out a heart issue . It would be nice if you also had an echocardiogram to rule out mild mitral valve prolapse which can give similar symptoms that you are describing.

Can minor heart valve leak get worse from lifting heavy stuff? EKG showed depression, 2 years ago, stress test okay then. EKG showed same thing again.
Heavy lifting: does not directly effect a heart valve leak....it may raise the blood pressure and pulse thus making a murmur sound "louder" but the actual structure of the heart is unchanged by the lifting itself BTW I am "confused" a bit about the "depressions" noted on your EKG..some valve problems lead to heart muscle enlargement..(and ST segment depression) again...lifting has only transient effects! Z ...Read more

Had echocardiogram, nuclear stress test w cardiolite, EKG and 30 day holter. Does the echo and nuclear test rule out CAD or any potential blockages?
Recording an ekg while walking up a steeper & steeper incline, at a faster & faster rate, so as to increase heart contraction intensity & rate of contraction, thus blood flow needed by the heart muscle. However, atherosclerosis does not narrow arteries, clots do, & the ekg only detects major qualitative differences in capillary blood flow. Thus only severe artery disease ...Read more
