Godsgal Posted March 3, 2011 Report Share Posted March 3, 2011 I'm sitting in the cardiologist department at Mayo and figured I would ask my DINET forum friends about my issue. I have been having some painful heart beats like when my heart is pounding and I can feel it beating. It goes beat, beat, beat, ouch, beat, beat, ouch, ouch. That type thing. Sometimes I'm just sitting and I'll feel just a very brief and sudden sharp pain. Not excruciating but definitely enough to scare me and make me concerned. So I got on the stress test with my cardio back home and I could only walk for 5 1/2 minutes. He said he saw no evidence of blockages during that time but I'm concerned I wasn't on the treadmill long enough. I'm only 29 so doctors are highly skeptical about any blockage in my heart. My regular cardiologist tells me to ignore it. But I'm having a hard time pretending this isn't there. It really is unnerving and scares me. I have had an ultrasound a couple months ago and it only showed a mild leaky valve. I did see on here in the forums someone mention that it can hurt when the heart is squeezing the blood through if there isn't enough blood to be pumped. Not sure if I imagined that up or not. Anyone heard of this?Also, the EP doc here told me some younger women can have something (a vein I think...can't remember what he said) that collapses in the heart momentarily that can cause pain and they can take calcium channel blockers to help. Anyone have this and know what it is???? Any thoughts or comments???? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
