Perhaps both: If you need a stent, your cardiologist will advise this. However, for best results you'll also want to review your diet and make sure it's the healthiest it can be. Plenty of fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, lean proteins, complex carbs. Watch the salt and sugar.

Traveled and was on GM diet. Now, Two weeks early period accompanied by nausea and cramps in upper abdomen along with a few blood clots. Am I pregnant?

Unlikely: If you did not have unprotected sex since your last period, you are not pregnant. Your symptoms may be due to hormonal imbalance. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

In general, pain related to activity is usually more related to the abdominal wall (muscles) rather than the internal organs.
