Chest pain exercise goes when stop almost instant. Had ecg, stress ecg, echo, cardiac mri/mra, 24h ecg. Age started 18 nw 22. Should I have CT angio?

Something else? Have you been evaluated for asthma/ reactive airway disease? If all the cardiac tests have been negative, maybe there is something else causing your pain. Ct angio would likely be redundant at this point. Read more...

22 had ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri/mra, 24h ecg, echo. For chest pain when excercising. Does this rule out congenital coronary anomalies?

You have already. Undergone many of the tests to exclude any ischemia to heart muscle, but the only way to rule out any congenital coronary artery anomalies is by angiogram. Talk with your cardiologist, but chance of finding any significant anomalies seem small to me with all negative results so far. Read more...
Likely should. That is a long list of tests. I often only get an echocardiogram and electrocardiogram along with a thorough history and physical. I obtain more tests if those the MRI should have documented the coronary artery course. Please confirm your questions with your doctor though. Read more...

Please clarify. Hi. What is CHD papvr? I get the CHD, but I don't know what papvr refers to or stands for. Thanks! Read more...
Risk Factors for CHD. Concern is genuine. Been anxious and stressful won't help. Good you have negative tests. The next important steps then is quit smoking if you do, exercise, at least 30-45 minutes of aerobic walking daily or 4x/week,: diet close to Mediterranean diet, no fatty foods, grilled, or broiled or baked should be the norm, less meat, more fish and chicken, adequate fluid intake. blood pressure control.

CTA score? We don't report a score with a coronary artery CTA. CAC (coronary artery calcium) score is done with CT but without IV contrast. The nonconrast study looks at calcified plaque and is useful for risk stratification but would not detect non calcified plaque as a CTA would. Partial anomalous pulmonary venous return is an extra cardiac left to right shunt and could eventually lead to pulm HTN. Read more...

Since 18 chest pain wen excersise. Had ecg, stress ecg, echo, cardiac mri, 24 hour ecg, BP normal. Now 22 what can this be! Strange angina!

Possibly no. By this point i can tell you that your probability of having ischemic heart disease is very low. Prinzmetal angina, an spasm of the coronary arteries without significant coronary blockage, should be in the differential but probably was already r/o by your doctors. Acid reflux can give you pressure pain and chest wall pain due to costochondritis if you lift weight at work or at exercise. Read more...

I had a stress echo a 3d echo and a cardiac MRI/MRA at the mayo clinic Would this not rule out blockage? I have chest pain but they say from GERD&POTS

Thorough testing. You've had extensive testing, by a well respected clinic, for a condition that's rather uncommon in 26 year-old males. There's always more to the story, than the testing can answer. Visiting another physician, for a thorough history and physical exam and a second opinion, may help reassure any concerns. Read more...
Questions & answers. I'm curious why the folks at Mayo would indulge a 26-year-old with all those expensive tests when the chances of "blockage" are so remote. Sounds like "blockage" WAS ruled out and you want to believe it but don't. Anxiety is strictly defined as irrational worry. My advice: Find something else to worry about, or better yet, seek treatment to help you overcome your anxiety (or maybe it's OCD?). Read more...
