Unusual sensation in my left side of chest

Hi Everyone 

i am 50 male,non-smoker.Lifestyle and diet ok.Normally active but with high cholesterol.I had 2 months ago early morning epigastric burning and it was not painful at all.

As i did not relieve by taking omeprazole so went to ER and my cardiac enzyme was very high.Normal ECG.Sent to cath lab and stent put on R coronary distal part.That relieved my epigastric burning sensation.

I also had critical narrowing of a branch of left coronary( circumflex) and a stent was put after few days on elective basis while i was admitted in hospital.They had mentioned about those two artery block but they also put a DCB(drug containing balloon) in another branch of left coronary(Obtuse Marginal OM1

My main problem is I constantly feel some sort of peculiar sensation in front of my left chest.It is not painful or it doesn't increase on exertion.Can anybody has any experience after stent or balloon insertion similar to me?Is it due to balloon?stent site healing? I would appreciate if you share you experience anything in the chest?

    Hello there, 

    Thank you for joining the Support Network and sharing your story. We hope that you find the answers and support you are looking for here. As you wait for others to reply and share their experiences, I encourage you to check out these resources on Cardiac Arrest and Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG). Since I am not a medical professional, I do recommend consulting your cardiologist about your peculiar sensation in your left chest. 

    Please keep us updated on how you are doing!
