Re: Angina - urgent answer needed
I have not suffered from angina but maybe i can help-
i was an emt for 5 years. Angina is a term for chest
pain. When you have to worry is when it is not releived
by rest,medication such as nitro (after the second dose
of nitro call 911 if it is not relieved) or if the pain
is different from other episodes or if it radiates
(goes anywhere else in the body such as the arms, legs
back etc.) or if you don't feel right have it checked
out even if you think that it is just indigestion.
Seek out a good cardiologist and have frequent blood tests for cholesterol and cpk (this is a test that determines if you have had a heart attack or going to
have one soon) and the doctor will determine how it will go after that.
