hello.see if your TMT or stress test is positive then there is a definite thing to are also on antihypertensives on a fairly good dose and your lipid profile is borderline plus your age.

your cardiologist has not prescribed you any of the antiplatelets for i think positive TMT test should not be taken lightly.

my advice would be you take a second opinion of another cardiologist showing him all your reports of investigations.

you might need a further evaluation in the form of other cardiac tests, if required invasive tests.

do not worry as there is definitive treatment for every cardiac problem if diagnosed early.

hope i have helped you out.

all the best.
