What causes chest pain while running? - Online Doctor Chats
I have read your query
can you please tell me your age and gender?
And since how long have you been noticing this issue?
My BP is sometimes up 140/90 and sometimes 120/70. I have not been diagnosised with hypertension. No diabetes
Okay, that is good. What is the nature of your job?
Started 2 weeks aga. Getting worse. Meaning that when I run the discomfort starts sooner and sooner into the run. I haven't tried to run at all for almost 2weeks
Research asst with university.
Have you ever got an EKG done?
or have you consulted any doctor recently for this issue?
Yes, last week. I was told it was fine. No arythmias
Your symptoms are suggestive of Angina
did they subject you to Treadmill test?
Ok. I have an appointment with a cardiologist march 4th. Having problems with ins company ok ing my stress test
I can't sleep at night. I can't lie flat. I sleep in a recliner
Okay, please wait for the results, once the results are back, the insurance company should approve further investigations
Ok. Hopefully my ins co will ok this test by march 4
Why is that? what happens when you try and sleep flat?
Mild pain behind the sternum if I lie flat
Your condition is not a pre-existing condition, your insurer should not object to further testing if the doctor feels it is necessary.
Do you get breathless while running or laying flat?
I hope that they haven't denied the test. I think they're just taking a long time to ok the test. The radiologist won't do the test until I get the ok
do you feel breathless while lying flat?
No shortness of breath
Okay, I hope they will approve the test
So, what further information are you looking for?
Me too. Do you think my coronary Artie's might be blocked?
Honestly, I can't speculate on that until you have a nuclear stress test or coronary angiogram done
It is too premature to give you a precise answer
that is the reason why these tests are necessary
Ok thanks. It's worth the money just to chat with you
