What are the signs of elevated troponin levels?

I'm 37 year old male 5 '6 154 lbs I was in the hospital with elevated troponin levels 2.7, went down to 2.4 when discharged. My ecocardigram was normal and EKG's normal. My face still turns flush and feels very hot. Is that a sign of elevated troponin levels.
