    Hi guys,

    I had quite a heavy weekend and have been full on at work. Woke up Monday with chest pains and a pain down my left arm .

    Went to A & E and ECG was fine and also blood pressure. However my Trop count was 41 so had to wait for four hours and run the test again, came down to 40 and was told I could leave.

    They did a second ECG test and all was ok. Been seen by a GP today and put on. Beta blocker and aspirin. Blood text tomorrow as they want me on a statin and a heart ultrasound to see what the cause was as it’s possibly agina.

    I’m 38 in October.

    Really feeling scared about the past 48 hours and not sure if anyone has any advice?
