Chest pain afflicts people of all ages. It doesn’t make a distinction based on demographics or social position. Having chest pain can unnerve a person. The fear is that a heart blockage could be lurking around the corner, a blockage that could be the “big one”- the one that stops a person in their tracks. As a cardiologist I see people of all ages who develop chest pain. Chest pains come in many sizes and shapes. They might be experienced as fullness, heaviness, an aching, a drawing, burning, squeezing, fluttering, and many, many other ways.

I can have altered sensation in both my feet and legs at the same time, this usually only lasts for short periods of time but happens on and off with twitching in the numb areas. Sometimes this can make it difficult to walk. I can also get a tingling tongue. I also sometimes get stabbing eye pain.

It is done in the hospital while you are either sedated through an IV or under general anesthesia. You will lie on a table and place your feet in stirrups to position your pelvis for examination. The doctor will insert an instrument (speculum) into your vagina to open the vaginal walls and examine the cervix. A small cone-shaped sample of tissue is removed from the cervix and examined under a microscope for any signs of cancer. This biopsy may also be the treatment if the doctor removes all of the diseased tissue. How to prepare for the test As with any procedure that is done under anesthesia, you will probably need to fast for 6 - 8 hours. You must sign an informed consent form. The procedure is done...
