So sorry to hear about your mom. Troponin (sp) blood levels will show very quickly if there is cardiac damage, CPK MB blood levels will show damage a little later.Stress tests and a 24 hour Holter monitor should pick up anything else. If your Mom does wear a 24 hour Holter she'll probably be asked to keep a diary of that time and it's VERY important to record ANY activity that she does. Most people keep incomplete diaries and then the interpretation can be off. Does your Mom have any history of high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol?? Sounds like everything is going ok so far, Good Luck to you both, sending "get well quick" vibes. Let us know how it goes!

Well, they released her from the hospital...her heart is fine, but they don't know what caused the severe pain...she was at a 9 with chest pain...it lasted up at that level for almost 6 hours..then started going down...she then got a fever of 102+ last night at the hospital...not sure what caused that either...but at least we know her heart is ok
