I had a Blood test as was suffering breathlessness and some pains in chest but am a smoker so quite normal for me. Anyway Dr phoned that evening saying I needed to go to A+E as Troponin level was 39. Scared stiff I went and had Chest X-Ray, ECG and more blood tests. Troponin was still high but as far as I know the other tests were ok. They told me I needed to referred to Rapid heart clinic and would receive an appointment within a week . I never got the appointment so phoned them and have now been sent a Cardiologist appointment for early August at my local hospital. I'm scared stiff as no one has explained anything to me and because of this I had to cancel my holiday which I should be on now. If I had high Troponin level does this definitely mean there is something wrong with my heart and if it was so bad why am I seeing a Cardiologist just for an initial appointment when told I would be having heart tests, stress tests and more within a week. Doesn't make sense to me. Just worried now as been totally left in the dark.
