Chest Discomfort With No Apparant Heart Problems
My wife (68 yo) has had chest discomfort on several ocassions, and received Emergency Room treatment and observation. Each time, no heart-related problems were noted, and all her lab work shows excellent cardio-vascular conditions (very healthy cholesteral levels, hypertension well under control, no other indications of heart problems, etc). Nuclear heart stress tests, heart echo grams, MRIs of chest and abdominal areas have negative results.
Yet, her symptoms (chest discomfort, particularly behind her left shoulder blade, a feeling of weakness, return. She has undergone two episodes in the ER, both with overnight stays for observations and tests, all with negative results. Last episode in the ER was a month ago; symptoms have returned. I have read somewhere that arterial spasms may occur for no known reason, and was wondering if anyone knows of a similar situation?
