1 doctor agrees

In brief: Abnormal troponin

In your case it could be from vasospasm of the blood vessels supplying the heart.
Troponin elevation is also not always because of a heart attack. It can be elevated because of heart strain from lung clot, increased pressures inside the lung, etc ..

Others include chest wall, intercostal muscles, esophagus, breasts, pleura, anxiety........
