I had an abnormal EKG, inverted T waves. Stress test was normal, (went to 170 Heart rate) and I also had an echocardiogram. Doctor thinks she sees a blockage, but I have no chest pain nor have I noticed shortness of breath. I exercise 5 days a week. However I do not have a lot of energy and get tired easily. I am not sure what the next step is.

I had no problem with the test for coronary artery disease. Two stents were inserted and I was released from the hospital 10 hours later.
