All your stats seem perfect! Lucky you. IMHO if it were me I would be looking at anxiety causing your distress.


Good luck with this test "tomorrow i am having a cardio angio ct scan".

Do you have a portable heart rate monitor to check on regular basis?

Resting BPM is lower then an activity BPM.


UK papers wrote last month on new blood test "troponin" for women to check for any hear problems.

Did you doctors do this blood test?



Please read this article in today's Daily Mail UK paper, Fit and healthy? We're proof you could STILL have a heart attack .

This line is from one of the ladies in the article. "I had blood tests, including the troponin or T test, which checks for traces of a protein that's linked to damaged heart muscle."
