Customer Question

About 5 years ago I had 2 stents put in. Regular testing since indicates no problems. I stopped exercising and recently started again on my treadmill. Heart rate will go up to around 120 and in about 5 minutes after I get off it goes down to around 77. Blood pressure stays within normal range or just over 140 while on treadmill. I'm thinking this is good but want your opinion.Once in a while, usually during a bad dream, I will feel it is hard to get a good breath. What might cause this and should I be concerned?
