Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

If your stress was positive for ischemia and you are feeling chest discomfort with Angina, then you should get further cardiac evaluation done. Kindly consult your treating Cardiologist and get an Angiography done so that coronary artery disease can be taken care of.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am a 53 F, I recently had a angina attack. My pressure was 167 over 105 after the incident. I was asked to keep my pressure. It changes from 160 s over 100 s to 80 s over 50 s, and this is when I am just sitting. I am having sweats. Is this something to be concerned about???

yesterday I was playing Halo 3 after I ate dinner, I was getting a bit aggravated and then I suddenly felt lightheaded, I felt a bit flushed, and the area around my diaphgram felt like it had a bit more pressure. I felt no pains in my shoulders or extremities, I did kinda feel like my heart beat was a bit faster. Had no difficulties breathing but shifting around different positions altered the way I felt. I ve never felt hearburn before so I m not sure if this is it. Does this seem liek heartburn, angina, or something else that I might be overlooking?
