As ECG and TMT are normal, but chest pain is there with associated symptoms you need to get coronary angiography done to rule out ischemic heart disease. you need to undergo clinicall examination too with blood investigations. dizziness can be even due to decreased blood supply to brain even. get carotid doppler to rule out that too.

have been suffering for the last 4 months from erratic pain traveling from my left jaw down to throat into my chest. It does not have to do with the activity I am in. Means both while at rest and some times while working. Some times the pain is also very deep in my left ear. Got done a Cardiac Angio ,Brain neck CT chest,C-Contrast,Brain Angio done in addition to various blood tests, under the supervision of a Cardiologist,Internal Medicine Physician,ENT specialist and a Neurologist.They so far could not point out my problem and am still suffering from the same. Can any one help me out. Thanks and Regards.

Ive just got back from A&E after having suffered from a sharp pain down the whole of my left arm, palpitations felt in my chest and neck, and shortness of breath. After 5 mins of this I called a paramedic, but over the course of the next half hour my symptoms subsided to nothing. Aside from a slightly high bp, I had nothing wrong with me. ECG was fine and blood tests showed nothing of interest. I am a 20 a day smoker and am overweight for my 6'3" frame. What should I be looking for as a cause?

Hello. I had Tuberculosis from travelling in 2008 and was treated one year later in 2009 with the 6 month routine meds. Since then and post pregnancy (2010) I have had a drop in blood pressure where I used to be a healthy 125-130/80-90 and am now averaging 100/60 which I understand appears normal but I feel terrible. Main problems are a tight crushing feeling in the chest area, light headedness, dizziness, tiredness and weakness. Unable to exercise as heart pounds so hard I feel I m going to collapse. ECG has been run twice and is normal. I have history of leaky tricuspid valve/ heart murmur from birth but never caused an issue before. I m 34 years old, 5ft10 (173cm) and a healthy 9stone10lb in weight. I walk, take light exercise and am a busy Mum. I want to go back to work but even waking up in the morning is a tough experience where I wonder if my heart is beating at all my pulse is so weak. I cannot also sleep on my back, the crushing feeling gets so bad, as I m dropping off I am barely breathing. Having one busy day, means at least 1-2 days recovery where I can t function properly. Also have problems with my heartbeat skipping and then doubling up for up to 30 sec periods where my heart rate feels out of sync, but it s not constant, just on occasions like illness, infections or dental visits. Please help!

I was in hospital yesterday and had a ecg due to heart palpitations. It was concluded that my heart palpitations were caused by anxiety and that my rhythm of the heart was fine. But since two days ago my wee has.a bad smell. Does this have anything to do with the heart palpitations? I thought it may have been a uti but it doesnt hurt to wee or it dont need to wee all the time so.im.unsure
