Brief Answer: May need more tests... Detailed Answer: Dear friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic He may need further assessment and assistance The function may be good at rest / and the problem may manifest on greater demand, like effort. TMT – Treadmill exercise ECG; may be with thallium isotope – is necessary to evaluate ischemia (reduced blood flow / Coronary Artery Disease) / LABORATORY work-up like enzymes, electrolytes and kidney function – may also be necessary for further assessment and assistance. The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation. Good luck Take care Wishing all well God bless
