I know someone my age who suddenly died and this shook me up. I want heart tests cause its better safe than sorry. But insurance wont approve them?
Self-pay: Insurance means a company collects money from each of its clients who buy the insurance coverage. The money (called premiums) would be a lot higher if "medically unnecessary" tests are paid for by insurance. Even if you don't mind paying double premiums or higher, your neighbors may not agree with you. Thus, just pay out of pocket for "medically unnecessary" tests, and do not expect any coverage. ...Read more
I have noticed lately when laying in bed at night my heart starts racing for no reason, I feel my PAC worse. 2 years ago heart tests showed nothing?
Visit your MD: I want to encourage you to visit your doctor and get a referral to a cardiologist. You our need an EKG and possibly to wear a holter monitor. There are many normal reasons for tachycardia but the underlying cause should be elucidated. Could be related to your medications, such as Advair, and deserves a physical exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fen Phen: yes: If you took Fenfluramine (pondimin) as part of the famous fen phen combination, then you have a small risk of heart valve damage or pulmonary hypertension (increased pressure in veins going to lungs). We always get an echocardiogram (ultrasound of heart) in those patients. At this time, that is the only diet pill that has that worry. Not really sold since about 2000. ...Read more
Can you please reasure me with all heart tests I have had,that I have a normal heart even though I still get chest pain.
I had heart test done and all they said they found was a couple leaky valves. They say not to worry. Are leaky valves normal?
Common: "Normal" is probably not quite correct. Common may better reflect the state of many individuals heart valves. With modern high resolution echocardiographic techniques we are visualizing more frequently differing degrees of "leakiness" that were simply not formerly visible. Valve competency, or the ability to fully close, is what's "normal" but is less common than you would think. ...Read more
I have had lots of heart tests and was diagnosed with pvcs. Latley the pvcs are painful at times. Is this cause for concern? The pain is brief.
PVCs: Pvcs may cause discomfort to some people. The pvcs and symptoms are only a cause for concern if there is signficant cardiac disease as an underlying cause or coexistant problem. Pvcs with otherwise normal cardiac status are generally not a risk. ...Read more
My BP is very high what is the reason behind i got all kidney and heart test by all my repots is clear but my size of left kidnet is very small?
High BP small kidney: At 20 years of age, with very high BP and a small kidney, you need to be evaluated for a renal artery stenosis. You will need to have a or interventional radiologist inject dye into an artery and follow that into the renal arteries. I suspect that your small kidney has a narrowing of its renal artery that is causing your malignant bp. If you do have a narrowing, an agioplasty will cure your bp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

32 male. Past 3 days have a squeezing pain upper left chest only when I move and the same position to my back left side. Feels like a sharp pain sometimes and always heavy and full. Should I be worried? Had heart tests last month and lug clear.
Maybe: A little high is not a big deal if you have no other risk factors, and can probably be taken care of with increased activity and a better diet. If you are diabetic, already have coronary disease, or a history of premature coronary artery disease in your family - medication may be needed. ...Read more
