Answers are for informational purposes only. Please confirm any information given with your own doctor.No, I don't think you should do any more tests. Stress tests and echos will rule out any problem with the heart in this case. Your heart is normal.These tests have effectively ruled out ANY problem with the heart.It is not your heart causing these problems.It could be muscular or anxiety related but it's not the heart.Please don’t click “bad” or “poor” service as this leaves negative feedback for me.

Hi but when I run I get shortness breath and when i stop it hurts to breath . Could ghis be a breathing through the chest ? It's hard to convince myself it's not heart . Like I get scared .
It could be something lung related, Mark. Like asthma.You need pulmonary function tests done for this.
I had that tested 2 by a respiratory specialist . Like even right now iv got shortness of breath and feel anxious . I don't know why I'm not convinced its not heart
I can assure you it's not your heart Mark.There are no other tests to be done on the heart. They were normal.I think it's more anxiety related. You are obviously very worried about your heart but I can assure you it's not.I would try meds for anxiety to help like an SSRI like paxil and klonopin. This will help
Sitting here right now stressed about these pains I ran in soccer stopped running hurt to breath trying to think what else to get checked it's hard when I'm 22 had tests done which doctors think we're not what I needed
Let's focus on why you think it is.
Not sure cause not bein able to breath :( and always sore chest ( question what's the chances of me having a murmer in neck artery , ? 1 doctor said I might and I wanted second advice another doc listened and said he would challenge the doctor who said. That lol ?
Very very unlikely to have a blockage in a neck artery at your age.I have never seen it Mark.
I'm sure you have seen plenty of aniexty patients . What's the best meds I need to get over this
I would use an SSRI like prozac with an as needed med like klonopin
Iv been told lexapro with some xanax
That's okay but I don't like xanax.Too addictive and habit forming.Clonazepam is better and not as addictive.
Ok and for chest pain it happens when I stop running and hurts but , doc said chest clear etc no ashma said I might of damaged chest musles
I agree with that 100%.Chest muscles/cartilage could be sore
Right now I'm dealing with chest pain hurts to breath sore throat and I get arm pain but as you know had heart checked but mind doesn't make me believe it
I know.You have severe anxiety about this.I don't doubt there is something there like stomach or muscle pain but it's not your heart
I know miss my old life never had these feelings . But there freaking scary and intense . Not even having a panic attack hr ATM is 70
You gotta get on some meds for anxiety Mark
Yes trying lexapro and Xanax ATM still doesn't take chest pain away after running which sucks ,
How long have you been on them?
Xanax 6 months lexapro 4 days , hope to get off Xanax once lexapro kicks in .
Lexapro will help mark
I hope so . Cause I haven't stopped worrying about my health for 10 months even though I tried
you will be okay. The lexapro is a very good drug.
I just don't understand been on lexapro 5 mg 2 weeks moved to 10 today I'm so afraid I got a tight sore pain in center of chest now I can't sleep
That's still a small dose.
I would go with 20mg per day.
Talk to your doctor.
Hi what's it mean when cardiologist says you have a low set heart but is completely normal ??
Just means that your heart rate is lower than what is "normal" but is low
He said that's why when he did ECG one lead was wrong until he did echo , so in your option is it completely normal
Hi but he did a ECG and said 1 ECG is abnormal but ECG is normal , he said after echo heart is lower ? I thought this means heart is lower in body ? Phil I thanks u for helping me :)
No, this means the heart is normal after the echo
