Although no longer routine, this test is still a common, safe way to assess people with heart disease symptoms. That chest discomfort you felt during your evening walk disappeared once you got back home. But a week later, youíre carrying a laundry basket upstairs and the pain returns, although only briefly. Itís time to call your doctor to discuss these symptoms ó and possibly undergo an evaluation for coronary disease.
