i am online and will be happy to answer your questions.
thank you for your patience.
sorry to hear about your problem.
1. Yes , your symptoms are definitely worth exploring. females after menopause have same risk of heart disease as males. ( protective effect of estrogen is diminished) hypertension is another risk factor.
I appreciate that you quit smoking and it will definitely help you improve your overall health status and significantly decrease risk of many diseases.
when was the last time you had stress test.
did your pain worsen with activity ? / improved with rest ?
did you take any medication ?
although recent normal stress test is very reassuring, but if these symptoms are new , i am very concerned and would like to rule out heart disease by performing complete physical examination, EKG ( possible hotler monitoring if suspicion of arrythmia ) +/- stress test.
i would recommend you to get appointment with cardiologist or your primary care provider.
Please let me know if you hace questions/ if i should provide clarifications.
