Given the family history and risk factor of hypertension
, further workup is warranted. I encourage you to visit either an internist or cardiologist, who can conduct a full cardiovascular physical exam and determine if further testing, such as a stress test
, is warranted. If symptoms abruptly worsen or do not subside until then, an ER visit is in order.
