#6 – 09.30.07:

Scripps Green Hospital; Dr. Paul Tierstein – When I would ride for a long period of time at higher bpm’s (144+) I would get slight chin pain and a dry cough. At my cardiac rehab the next day I told the staff and after 15 minutes or riding a staionary biek I was getting chin pain again. I was admitted and the next morning had an expolartory angiogram where a very small bloackage——% was found and balloned. Due to the fact I work out hard and at higher efforts is the only reason I could feel this blockage said the Dr.Tierstein.
