Question angina

Do any of you have angina? If so what helps it when nitroglycerin or your other angina medicine doesn't. What other kinds of things do you try along with medicine that works. I don't have coronary artery disease. My doctor thinks it could be my tachycardia or my mitral valve prolapse that could be causing my angina. Any advice would help. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Re: angina

Nitro has ALWAYS taken away my chest pain, with the exception of when I titrate off heart medications.

Do you take a lot of Nitro? Could it be possible that you are getting somewhat tolerant of Nitro?

What type of pain do you experience?

Re: angina

No, I don't take alot of Nitro. No, I am not getting tolerant of the Nitro. It feels like a tightness/sharp aching type pain. The Nitro helps it. I am just scared to take more than two pills in 24 hours but sometimes it takes 3 in 24 hours to take the pain away because it is so severe. Is there anything else that helps you that I can try with the Nitro, so I don't have to take the third pill. I am scared to take more than two pills in 24 hours because I am scared of it dropping my BP too much. A doctor told me it can drop the BP, so that is why I am scared. Even though I have HBP, it has dropped my BP pretty low before. If you all have any more questions just ask and I will be glad to answer.
