Do people with coronary artery anomaly have a lot of pain?

It depends. The presence of symptoms, such as chest pain, depends on the type of coronary artery anomaly. Many patients with an anomalous origin or course of a coronary artery are entirely asymptomatic, but some have intermittent chest pain (sometimes during or immediately after strenuous exercise). Many anomalies are benign, but some require surgery because of an increased risk of sudden cardiac death.

Scared of having congenital coronary artery anomaly, had cardiac mri, left artery perfect and they said 90% sure the right. Image quality bad. Trust it?

Nothing abnormal... So far, and the physician who read the cardiac MRI study is 90% confident 1 coronary is fine, and 100% confident the other one is. You need to discuss this with your physician, but you will never get 100% accuracy or agreement in medicine. You will have to accept some level of uncertainty based on your unique situation - your doctor will have the most insight as to your residual risk. Read more...

They may be able to reassure you or they may suggest additional testing if indicated. Mri does have the ability to see the coronaries well, but the actual quality varies in every case. Read more...
Cardiology. Repeat or additional testing depends on your underlying symptoms and risk for cardiac disease. I would suggest discussing your history of chest pain and family history of cardiac problems with your cardiologist. In younger patients, cardiac causes of chest pain account for 4-6 percent of all cases. Read more...
