Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir

After going through the medical details provided by you I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that although there is nothing to worry but considering your age it's advisable that you should get an ECG and an Echocardiogram done.

Echo is important to rule out any aortic stenosis.

I hope this information will answer your query

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap

Respected Sir, I am from from Kolkata. My father(56 years) is suffering from Severe Aortic Stenosis. All the doctors that we have visited recommended an Aortic Valve Replace (AVR).
We are really worried about him.
Sir will be grateful to you for your suggestions..

I am a 48 yr old female nurse and in June I visited my GP with chest pain brought on by cardio exercise. He referred me to a cardiologist who found an ejection systolic murmur. I was referred for an echocardiogram and CT angiogram. Whilst waiting for these tests I developed chest pain at rest. The CT angiogram is still pending but the echocardiogram showed aortic stenosis and mitral valve stenosis. The doctor doing the scan asked me if I had ever worked in a developing country which I had 7 years ago when my then boyfriend died sussenly of myocarditis? cause. Could you plese tell me the relevence of being in Namibia 7 years ago and my cardiac problems now? and what is the likely prognosis and treatment?
