Re: is this angina?

What are your symptoms with angina, and what set them off. They keep telling me it is not my heart, but I am feeling worse and worse with little setting it off. How did you get them to do an angiogram? I was told I am too young to have that done, I have had echo, calcium score and holter. Back when I was feeling much better (last Sept) I had a stress test. I know I couldn't pass that now, but its like no one believes or cares. The last doctor I saw said the symptoms remind him of an upper aorta tear, but that he would think they would see it with the tests that have been run. Think? thats not good enough, this is my life. Today, I bent down to pick up something in the shower and had awful head, sternum and back pain, felt sick to my stomach. Since then the left side of my face has throbbed and everytime I walk I feel kind of nauseous, back, head and arms hurt. People around me say its anxiety and maybe a nerve in back/neck. I am finding it hard to believe. Oh, yeah about 3 weeks ago, I was in the hospital for 4 days, becasue my blood pressure kept doing funky things, everytime I would go from laying to sitting to standing, my blood pressure would go sky high and I would get hot, and head would feel like it was going to explode. I am on medication for that, but they don't know what set that off. One doc says I need to go to specialists (endorcrinology, hypertension, etc) another is trying to tell me its just caused from back pain?

Re: is this angina?

My aunt had all sorts for heart test, scans, tread mill test, etc and she got a clear bill of health too. however, she said I know something is wrong and would not let up, she had an angiogram and later that week had a triple by pass. My dad also had a lot of burping and he had a blockage. I would get another opinion if you feel uneasy. Good luck

Re: is this angina?

I have a friend who has burning in the neck/throat, told her it was GERD. Wow, that is interesting! That was the only symptom you had? Just the burning??? Did it come on from doing stuff or just random??

It came on if I was climbing stairs, walking too fast, having sex, it was pretty much exercise related - sometimes it would come on if I was stressed about something.

Yes - the burning sensation was the only symptom I had.

Re: is this angina?

Well i am still having problems. They keep finding little things wrong but nothing to explain the big picture. I now have severe vitamin d deficiency, osteoporisis, tmj, some neck stenosis and arthritsis. The bp medications are keeping my blood pressure down sometimes. It still spikes even when on it, having stomach problems again. I had finally gotten up to 113, now down to 109. So frustrating. I daily have left pain in arm, neck, jaw and now have added left temple pain. I am beginning physical therapy of neck, they think this will help it. I do think it may help some, but not all. I still cannot bend without pain and bp and heart rate going up.
Stairs are awful. When I have too, I go very slowly and still have an awful time. I went up some last friday and ever since then, I am having spikes of bp and heart rate. Tuesday first bp kept spiking with me standing 160/110. and then later my pulse rate kept going up with just walking short distances, it got up to 124 even on a betablocker. Since the stairs I seem to be having stomach problems in the mornings also. I have been walking more and that seems to help my strength, but lifting things also cause problems. Heres a kicker, I had another stress test done this week and I had no problem on it, I am sure I passed with an A pluls. I asked them, if they had any stairs so I could bring it on and they just laughed.
The cardiologist wants me to have my adrenal glands checked. I am soo tired of not being able to do much. Has anybody had similar problems. This is what I am noticing,
worse when I first wake up, if I walk really slow for 5 or 10 minutes I feel better (unless its a morning with really high spike).
I have to avoid stairs, bending and sex. If do these activities, I feel terrible and it is set off for days after. Oh and cannot lift or carry anything very heavy.
I am able to walk more now, unless I am having an extremely bad episode. But I still cannot work, and try living a normal life, without stairs and try cleaning, grocery shopping or anythingg without lifting or bending. I look normal, so people think I am fine, and my husband, thinks I just need to suck it up. I have had pinched nerves before, and anxiety. This is so much more. I still worry someting cardiac like a blockage or its the adreanal gland thing (sorry for typos). I did go on a site that said the a. gland can brought on with bending and twisiting, and they have stomach and bp problems. I used to want my life back, now I would be happy if I had a diagnosis and part of my life back! I try not to get upset and scared, and I am successful part of the time.

Today has not been too good. I know I have to eat, but it seems to make me nauseous. It is 100 degrees and I am suppose to take my daughter to her baseball game. I am afraid it will be too hot for her and me! When this first started I was upset when my bp was 130/90, heck now I hope for that. I am learning to go on doing things even when bp is 150/100 and pulse is 119. I feel bad at these times, but unless I feel like I have to lay down, I try to keep going. So, I don't think I am getting better, I am getting worse but learning to avoid certain things and sucking up the pain more

Re: is this angina?

yews you brief your problem here but Angina is chest discomfort that occurs when there is decreased blood oxygen supply to an area of the heart muscle. You fell heaviness, pressure , squeezing and pain in chest.

Re: is this angina?

But some descriptions also note the left sided pain in arm, jaw and back.
