Yes, I was diagnosed with myocardial bridging 11/01/17 as a result of a heart cath. Initial symptoms included chest tightness/ache, tingling in arms, shortness of breath, general fatigue and lack of energy. Went to family doctor after not being able to give blood due to my hemoglobin being too low. I have extensive family history of heart disease (mother passed away of heart attack). She initially did an EKG which was abnormal so she sent me to a cardiologist. Cardiologist did a nuclear stress test and echo which came back inconclusive. Then I had a cat scan which showed a blockage. 11/01/17 I went in for a cath thinking I would end up with a stent. Dr. did not place a stent (felt the blockage was not high enough) but told me I had myocardial bridging and he would treat medically. Since this time I have been on medication and attended cardiac rehab. I am still experiencing the same symptoms (some decrease with medication) so I am coming to Mayo April 16 for a consult.
