Have asthma and abnormal EKG. Why do I have chest heaviness?

Im 31 yrs old and had a slightly abnormal ekg they don t think anything is wrong but just to be sure they ordered a stress test is it unusual to have an abnormal ekg if nothing is wrong? Iwas having chest heaviness and pressure I do have asthma but have also been totally exhausted for over a month no matter how much sleep I get.

Thanks for your query
As they found nothing on EKG that's why they have ordered for a stress test and if anything abnormal is there it will be revealed on stress test inspite of having normal EKG
I think your asthma control is not optimal as your symptoms persist. I suggest you to consult your pulmonologist and take his opinion and get yourself examined to assess the level of your asthma control. If not controlled then your asthma treatment may have to be stepped up.
Thank you.
