In late 2011 I was hosp. with Takosubo cardiomyopathy after never having had any heart probs. That seemed to have resolved within a few weeks. I have since had hypertension and chest pain that at times does not respond to nitro. I had a cardiac cath. done on Thanksgiving which showed no problems with the major vessels. Am now on lots of meds, yuk! Recently had test of my autonomic nervous system which showed some imbalances (ie. advanced autonomic imbalance, etc.) Hard to get a clear sense of what these results mean since my cardiologist seems to not have much confidence in this type of testing. I just want the chest pain gone and to know whether or not its benign and I can just ignore it or should I be seeking a 2nd opinion? ie., coming to the Mayo? Help. : )
