I was wondering at what point do you accept the diagnose of microvasular disease. I have been having left sided chest pain for 8 weeks. It lasts on and off all day. EKG is abnormal but they tell me nothing to be concerned with borderline replorization abnormalites non specific ST and T wave abnormalities. ST depressions suttle. I have had an echo, stress echo, stress and CTA no evidence of blokage or calcifications. They diagnosed first with very mild vaso spams put me on Norvasc taking it for 11 days and still the same. Now after seeking a second opinion at St. Francis Hospital in NY doctor says this is likely micro vasular and recommended I take Ranexa and wants to do an MRI. I would like to to know how confident I can be in my diagnosis. Also I am confused because both cardilogists say there is no RISK of heart attack with MVD which doesn't seem true based on all that I am reading. I am only 39 with three small babies and so scared I am being pacified by dr. instead of being treated. Any recommendations. I am hestitate to stop one medicine and start another. I keep hoping this is non cardiac in nature since the pain has lasted for two months. It is not brought on by anything specific, I can have it while I am sitting at my desk or playing with my kids and it last on and off all day. If you could recommend or provide information on next steps to confirm diagnosis is correct I would appreciate it. Also any recommendations for dr. in NY/Long Island Area.
Thanks and god bless all of you. You have such great strengthen and courage.
