Nope. You're EKG will not hurt at all. Nothing goes into your body. The only thing that will touch your skin are little stickers that they will put onto your chest. Have fun! :-)

Greetings - I had a heart scan the other day and got some bad results. My overall calcium score was 544.01. When I talked with my Family Physician, I didn t ask a question that I now have. I was kind of in shock at the time to find out I was in the 78th percentile based on MESA database. My score consisted of Left Main 29.43; LAD 387.34; Left circumflex 0; RCA 127.24. Is it common for one number to be significantly higher than the others?

I just took blood pressure at Publix with a reading of 134 over 82- the worst I've ever had. I am 40 and work out regularly.
