Chest xray?: Did you have a chest x-ray? It would make sense that among all the other tests you mentioned they would have done a chest xray to r/o a pneumothorax or a pneumonia.

Bp's in the range of 105/65 are not unhealthy, except that your body isn't used to them. It's good you went to er since you had chest pain, and I'm glad your heart studies were normal. ...Read more
