Question: Dear Dr, I am 31 year old male. I lead a very active life which includes runnng, walking , swimming, cycling for more than 6 days a week. dont smoke, drink very rarely and keep a good balanced diet. From Last year have been experiencing some uneasiness in the chest area and upper apdomen. Have gone through all cardiac tests, ECG (showed Sinus Tachycardia at 106 bpm , Otherwise normal ECG){{Have to mention that while doing the ECG the machine malfunctioned and they had to change wires all over me which left me anxious and stressed out) , Went for TMT ECG which came out normal and negative for Ischemia and normal BP and heartrate response, and the Cardiac Echo was also normal. Also went for Cardiac Enzyme tests in Blood which also came back normal. Can you please advice me if i am in normal cardiac health. ? I have attached my reports here Thanks XXXXX
