Do my friend have serious heart problems if the cath showed no blockage ?

A friend recently started having bad chest pain that comes and goes. The cardiac cath was negative ? Now he thinks that he is out of the woods, but I still think that on and off bad chest pain is not normal and that his doctor sort of blew him off. Can you still have serious heart problems if the cath showed no blockage or problems but the chest pain persists ?

Has your friend had his gallbladder checked? I started having chest pains out of the blue one day, thought I was having a heart attack at 23, got my heart checked and it wasnt that so I had a HIDA scan done and they said I had gallbladder disease and my gallbladder was functioning poorly and had to come out. That was 5 years ago and havent had a chest pain since.

My Dad is 66 yrs old and has type 2 diabetes. He suffers from labored breathing. He recently had a stress test that supposedly showed a blockage. He went for a heart cath and they found no blockage and the cardiologist said his heart was fine. He is on metformin and glipizide. Could these medications be causing the labored breathing? He also chews tobacco which we know is bad for him, could that be causing the problem? He said he doesn t know what is wrong but he knows that something is.

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
