im a 36 year old woman living in england. went to my gp the other day with chest pain cos my colleagues told me to go, was referred to a/e and was totally shocked to find i had an abnormal ecg, ischaemic changes namely flipped t waves and a bit of st depression in four leads. bloods were all fine. the cardiologist admitted me for 48 hrs but i must admit i discharged myself that same evening cos noone had told me any tests were planned plus i started worrying too much. shame cos an exercise test had been booked for next day. now waiting for that as an outpatient. my main thought is what caused it, im not overweight 55kg n 5'4", yes i do smoke, diets healthy, the 2 things i think about is a 30' fall onto concrete (could that have 'jolted' the heart) and the 3 occasions i took a wrap of coke (that was years ago when i was still stupid but could just 3 times cause permanent damage). anyone with any ideas, pointers or just something to say please add reply..........yes i am gonna try giving up the cigs!
