I Have Unstable Angina, Every Time I Have Gone To Hospital Blood Tests And ECG Ok, Is This Typical?
A MyHeartDiseaseTeam Member asked a question 💭

In the last 6 months I have had to go to A&E being admitted 3 times. Each time all the tests come back negative, blood tests and ECG good. One of the Cardiologist suggested the chest pain could be from my stomach. I don’t think so.
