angina with my menopausal hot flushes?

I have had fairly likely diagnosis of coronary heart disease following +ve stress ecg (2.5 mm downsloping ST depression before 6 mins - test stopped soon after - and carrying on for 9 minutes in recovery) due to starting with angina like chest pains a few months ago. I am awaiting angiogram. Age 54, familial hyperlipidemia, mother had heart attack at 62.

My angina has been coming on with exertion and fading after a few minutes. I gave up on HRT a year ago and have had hot flushes for a few months. In recent week or so I have started having chest pain when I have a hot flush. I know that one's heart rate increases when one has a hot flush. Could this be enough to actually bring on the angina? It really is a squeezing pain very like the angina that exercise brings on. Weird. Then it fades in a few minutes as the hot flush fades. It is getting to a point where it is decidedly uncomfortable.

Presumably if this is CHD then one can expect it to worsen and be triggered by lesser things. I should have my angiogram in a month or thereabouts.

Has any other lady experienced this?

Re: angina with my menopausal hot flushes?

Is it possible that it's not actually menopause related and maybe more heart related? I was only 41 when my disease was diagnosed and althought I had a partial hysterectomy I don't believe I was in menopause however I know that some of the angina I had made me wonder if it wasn't hormone related because it would come and go at different points in the month.
If you get real uncomfortable from the chest pain I wouldn't wait too long to get to a doctor. A month seems a long time to be waiting for your angiogram with the symptoms you are describing. Is the pain ever coming on at rest ? My pain at first came on with exertion but as time went on it was coming on when I was just sitting or standing.
