a long history of heart disease. I have recently been told by my regular
doctor that I have blockage and she suggested I have a heart cath. I had
a stress valium test and it showed that when I was exercising I had irregular
heart beats. I was only on the treadmill for 5+ minutes and they got my heart
rate up to 166. I have been experiencing pain radiating up and down my left
arm and excessive sweating under my right underarm. I know that sound really
strange but that is what has been going on for a few weeks now.
I really thought that it was my nerves because I lost my mother earlier this
year and it has been a very stressful time for me. Does anyone have any similiar
symptoms? Has anyone out there had a heart cath? Is it safe? I would certainly
appreciate any info that anyone would like to share with me. Thanks, Celia
