Hello,

Considering your complaints, it is necessary to exclude a possible cardiac ischemia. For this reason, I recommend consulting with your attending physician for a physical exam, a resting ECG and cardiac enzymes.

Performing an exercise cardiac stress test or stress echo will be necessary in order to investigate for coronary artery disease.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka
