Dear patient,

You do have several risk factors for heart disease, so the symptoms must not be taken lightly. The quality and duration of the pain are worrisome. I believe that another form of risk stratification, such as an exercise stress test, perhaps this time with imaging (echocardiogram) could be considered given your current clinical complaints. If it is negative, then it would be reassuring and allow to focus on other more benign causes of chest discomfort.

Truly yours,
