I interpret this as them saying you have some sort of insufficient blood supply to your heart. The EF/ejction fraction is not awful and that your valves are normal which means blood flow is ok from that standpoint. Who was this consultant? Was it a cardiologist? If not, you might want to take this to the next level and have a few more test done. Are you having any other symptoms? To your knowledge, have you ever had an issue with your heart from any other exams?

Thanx a lot sir, One thing I want to mention my medical history here and want your advise, that my age is 35 yrs, and I am taking regular medicines of emotional disorder from my age of 20. And I took medicine of high blood presure around 1 yr in 2007-08, and after that I get low blood pressure n my doctor stoped that medicine. On Last tuesday 7th feb, I feel high blood pressure n I took blood pressure medicine n alprazolam. N its go down. But next day I feel some heavyness on chest and breathing was not normal. I contact with my doctor and he give medicine. But I not feel much better and I visited again on 14th. and on ECG AVL graph was not normal. Doctor gave me anti- biotics. And I am feeling relief from today with those medicines.
Yesterday I visited cardilogist, He took Echo and after that he said report says I need urgent angiography. The vain supply blood to lungs that are little bit blocks. But I wrote here echo reports, I think its not mention anywhere on the report. Thats why I need your guideline. I havnt any heart problem on the past.

Ok, thanks for other information. Usually, some sort of stress test would be next, BUT, if the cardiologists said urgent angiogram then you need to have that done. In a way this would be better for you anyway because the angiogram will tell you absolutely everything everyone needs to know. And if you do have some sort of blockages they can most likely repair right then with a stent. Saves a step anyway with not having stress test, because if you failed stress test you would need angio catherization/angiography anyway.

I agree with what Jerry has said. When the cardiologist said urgent work is needed please get busy on this.

I also wish to endorse Jerry’s advice

But does an echo cardiogram show coronary artery blockages?

Yes, thats why I am confused. Same cardilogist take echo, and he said the echo report says. But no where mention on echo test report. I am belongs from small town. And you can say here I cant trust on any cardiologist they are mostly money tempting. Heard a lot of cases where they cheat people only for money. Thats why I am discussing here if report says I have some blockage, then I will go any big town for further treatment. Today I am going to my doctor (general physician) for his opinion. Because I m feeling much better with the medicines referred by him.

Can we do anything against these kind of money tempting doctors? Who gives false reports only for money?
Is there any posibility, the report 1st cardiologist gave can be cure through medicine within 4 days?
Can we punish that kind of doctors through Court?

I don't know the answers to your questions, but I am very happy to hear that your last test results turned out so good.

Let us know how things continue to go.
