Have multiple sclerosis. Had heavy sweating. On heart monitor. Caused by MS?

I have MS and had an attack in which I broke out in a heavy sweat and knew something was wrong, and was taken to the hospital. Many tests were done and the angiogram showed nothing, but a small blockage in the blood . Did I have a heart attack and is this something that can continue to happen? The cardiologist put a monitor of some kind on my chest and I am to keep it on for two weeks. Could my MS cause my bloodflow to slow down or what is happening to me? Could I be in a condition for a possible heart attack? The tests all show everything was good/

Thanks for posting this query in HCM

MS generally wont lead to heart attack. People with MS may have independent risk factors (Diabetes, cholesterol, high BP) to develop heart attack. The symptoms that you had could represent a heart attack. But there are tests which can either rule in/out the diagnosis of heart attack. Your doctor has advised you test which will detect any rhythm disturbances in your heart .
Donot worry and wait for the tests which are going on
