I've had back ache plus sore arms for over a week as well

My ecg showed up ischemic but my echo was clear normal

If there is ischemia on ECG and you have chest pain now I would suggest that you go to ER and have a repeat ECG and assess for an acute coronary syndrome

This should not be ta***** *****ghtly and i would suggest an immediate evaluation

Anxiety can cause such ind of symptoms but that can only be considered once ischemia or active ischemia is ruled out

My echo was normal though the consultant said everything was normal nothing to worry about.

I have back pain and arm pain for over 2 weeks now plus I have weakness in my right side

Echo is not a very good test to confirm ECG evidence of ischemia

It has to be either exercise tolerance test or CT angiography

Please do let me know if you have any other questions

It said mild lvh on my referral that's why I had to get an echo. The pain is on my ribs on the right hand side of chest

But as i said an evaluation with Exercise tolerance test is required

See LVH is that ischemia?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Cause it's only lvh that's mentioned on referral
No LVH doesn't means an ischemia but ischemia can cause LVH and it is one of the cause of LVH
