Hi, @msb18 – will you post about how things went with the cardiologist after your appointment today, when you have a moment?

Hi – The cardiologist ordered an echocardiogram and the calcium score. Then she'll order a stress test after she sees the results of the calcium score. I'm including a link to an explanation of that test.

She said she's hopeful the shortness of breath and palpitations will stop once Aimovig leaves my system but, given that my father had a heart attack and I'm so winded with palpitations, she wants these tests run. She said she'd surprised that these meds are prescribed to people with family history of heart disease and that it doesn't exclude patients with heart disease. I have to call tomorrow to schedule the calcium score test and the echocardiogram is in August.

Sorry, forgot to include a link explaining the calcium score test ordered by the cardiologist – https://www.texasheart.org/heart-health/womens-heart-health/straight-talk-newsletter/do-i-need-a-coronary-calcium-score/
