Re: Chest Pain when walking -- Help

If you decide to take nitro, after experiencing pain from walking, you could consider sitting down prior to taking the nitro, as a precaution.

I saw the doctor this week and he said even though my calcium score test was Zero, my other tests came back normal from when I saw the cardiologist, sometimes your arteries could be very narrow and when you physically do walking etc.. could cause the pain because the arteries are not letting the blood flow through normally. Very scary to me and he wants me to go back to the cardiologist. When I saw the Cardio, and after 2 hours of being there, he gave me the nitroglycerin if needed, but he told me to try it out at home first to see how my body adjusted to it because of the side affects
