But with the same test they found he had a 75% blockage in his Right Renal Artery and his dr told us that because he is not on blood pressure medications that they weren't going to do anything about this that it was nothing to worry about. And I am thinking this dr is very wrong! With a 75% blockage I believe he should be getting something done am....

    Strange symptoms no answers and scared

    So I’m in my late 30s. And last week along with this week I had two separate incidents of severe chest pain into my left arm paired with rapid heart rate and the feeling that I was going to pass out.

They put a test dose....
