Dear Madam ,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well first thing i would suggest you is to quit smoking as soon as possible . If you are getting sweats that means you are getting angina sort of thing which needs prompt evaluation by a doctor , an urgent ECG , 2 D ECHO and possibly a
coronary angiography would be needed . Yes due to all good medicines and quality of treatment you will be able live much longer and lead a healthy life .

I advise you to see a cardiologist immediately for further treatment and intervention .

Hope it suffices .

Wish you good health .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
