I'm 43 and have CAD in the LAD. I was stented once when and I was 30 and more recently restented in the same spot two years ago. I'm fit and otherwise active. This morning I woke up with a low body temp of around 96.2 degrees and have been feeling out of breath. I'm not having my usual angina pains...with pain in the arm. However, I'm feeling a squeezing in the center of my check. Are these related?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You should have EKG and cardiac markers done.

Any pain at this setting age should be investigated as HEART PAIN – UNLESS PROVED OTHERWISE –
Particularly so after stenting twice. The presentation could be atypical, even misleading at times.

In suspected heart attack, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE – if detected early, an attack may even be aborted / the amount of damage and complications can be reduced remarkably. The most important time is the first few hours.

Better be safe than sorry - treated if a problem is found / Happy, if it turns out otherwise

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
