Feeling rough since angiogram any advice?
Hi I had the angiogram done last week. Had it done in the arm, wasn't pleasant but was ok - ish. Only thing that happened is I had an angina attack while it was being done, scared the you know what out of me!
Result was no blocked arteries, but he told me I need an echocardiogram he says there are some rare heart conditions that cause angina and he thinks I may have one. As he didn't elaborate and I was still a bit spaced from the diazepam I didn't ask any more my doc has told me today it probably means valves or chambers where the problems are, but didn't tell me much more.
I had to go back to see her today because since the angiogram, my arm has absolutely killed me, the bruising is out, but i expected the pain to be a lot less than it is. they said after a week I would be back to normal and I'm not. I'm having a fair few angina attacks and my shoulder and arm hurt a lot of the time. sometiems the pain is a burning sensation. But my doc looked at my arm and says she can;t see anything.
When he took the wire out I actually felt it prod my back, by my shoulder. I still feel rough from it all, is this normal. my doc reckons my body is traumatised byt the experience and is reacting about it.
I know the guys are going to hate me bringing this up, but it might be something but my period happened 2 days later and it was 10 days early. Also it is extremely heavy with serious clots. sorry if this offends anyone, just concerned aobut how I feel, I wasn't expecting to feel this rough.
I suppose I'm looking for some confirmation of this from you guys because you ahve more experience in the aftereffects of stuff than the doc does if you know what I mean.
thanks for any help guys
