Scan: Scan in a low risk patient hasn't much to offer. It can be positive and this would imply you should be on diet, exercise and statin program. There isn't a lot of reason not to be doing diet and exercise, and not to smoke. That leaves statin treatment decision as main possible decision aid. ...Read more
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.

Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more
Nuclear stress test results came back normal. However, i'm still feeling symptoms. Am I just being dumb? Should I just be content w/the results?
Am young. Have heart flutters. Waiting for echo, Holter, stress test results. am afraid tests turn very abnormal. Do young have normal flutters?
Yes: Fluttering sensations in the chest are caused by skipped heart beats or rapid heartbeats. Young people with no heart disease can often experience palpitations. Sometimes they are brought on by anxiety, fatigue, caffeine and cough and cold medicines. Beta blockers are sometimes prescribed if the palpitations are annoying or very frequent.

Stress test on 7-10-2015. I went today for the results. They said the scans were normal and no blockages. The DR wants me to do PET scan now because even though the results were normal my BP was 150/100 right before and 120/80 after. Is that normal?

I had a cardiac echo stress test recently, results were normal but they did find a single ruptured tendinae. What is chance of valve issues later?
Ruptured tindinae: Likely not. However ask your provider if there is any mitral regurgitation . You should also ask if you have an audible mumur associated with the valve, and if so that would require periodic surveillance with physical exam. You probably would not need another echo unless abnormal murmur appeared or you developed symptoms ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
