Hello de Sharka just following up I am having an
I would exclude any cardiac disorders.
Welcome back on Ask a Doctor service!
I understand your concern and would explain that your symptoms seem to be related to chostochondritis.
I would exclude any possible cardiac issues, as your symptoms are really atypical of any cardiac disorders.
Coming to this point, I recommend having some rest and taking acetaminophen or ibuprofen for the pain.
There is no reason to panic!
There is no need to perform any additional cardiac tests.
I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!
Wishing a nice weekend,
Thank you for your response I wanted to ask one last question it seems I have what seems like perhaps a muscle spasm or heart application around the ribs area in the left side there is no pain or symptoms just that spasm feeling like almost a muscle spasm any ideas do u think it could be cardiac related
Your complaints are not related to the heart.
As a cardiologist, I would like to reassure you that this sensation is not related to the heart.
It could be related to a muscle spasm or anxiety.
For this reason, I recommend trying to relax and use some warm packs locally.
Hope to have been helpful!
Wishing all the best,
I had a follow up with my cardiologist ecg was fine stress test he said looked good but I need to do more aerobic and cardio work outs he said that my heart rate reached my target quick but no sign of anything serious would u agree I am scheduled for a echo to make sure everything is fine what r your recommendations and is it normal that I would reach my target heart rate
My opinion as follows:
This raise in heart rate could be related to lack of physical activity.
Regular physical activity will help improve your body reaction.
From the other hand you are a very sensitive person, and anxiety may be playing an important role in all this clinical situation too.
Anyway, there is no reason to worry about!
I am pretty sure that your cardiac ultrasound will be OK too.
Let me know about everything!
Wishing good health,
Thank u so u agree with my cardiologist that I just need to do more physical activity
