Heart issue without diagnosis

Hi all,

I am 54 years old and I have a critical health condition that I need some help and advice. I had multiple visits, 5 times total, in the last couple weeks to the emergency room with very severe chest pain and a level of troponin reaching each time reaching 70ng/L. The chest pain last only 5 to 10 min but leave me so tired and exhausted the whole day. At the emergency room they did CT scan, X-ray, Echocardiogram, and even catheterization and they all came negative with normal heart physiology. All my blood work didn’t show anything and I have done many. I have been tested on everything and even on my thyroid and many cardiologists couldn’t find what wrong with me. I don’t think I am stressed more than usual and my health is in general fine. I stopped drinking coffee and tea and I don’t drink alcohol or take Viagra or any other drug. Seems doctors don’t know what to do on my case and I am scared that the next attack will finish me. Any advice and help will be grateful.

Thank you in advance

I Appreciate very much foryour help or advice

    I am so sorry that you are having to experience this! It is great that you have had your thyroid checked and that the medical profession is taking this seriously. What does your GP say? Please know, even without a diagnosis, we are here to help support you. Best Katie

    Hi John,

    Does the exhaustion extend into the next day or do you feel better the next day? I'm asking this because I've had a similar experience a couple of times. Both times I felt exhausted but my energy returned the next day. In both cases I was concerned it was my heart because I had bypass surgery but I was given stress tests both times and they both produced excellent results. It's encouraging that the tests conducted on your heart have all been positive but I would persist in questioning your doctor so that you might have other testing done in order to find the root cause.

    Best of luck.
