Question: I am male aged 61+, height 165 cm wt 71 kg. I had angioplasty in May 2014 having stunt in middle artery. At that time I had no problem my all reports were ok. TMT/ECG/Eco/LIPID profile. When I do some exercise due to excess sweating there is contraction in my jaws. Drs says that it is a symptom of angina. but when all the reports are ok then how it can be related to angina! contraction in jaws can be due to salt deficiency.
since then I am taking Ecosprin-150, Prasugel-10, LNBloc-5, Strowas-20, but these days I have very high BP with Higher HR 160/100-100 after taking those medicines.
I had my angioplasty in Escorts-Delhi but presently i am residing in XXXXXXX
what do you suggest should I change the medicine or go for angiography again.before 2010 my ECG was normal. but in 2010 it has RBBB

Brief need to be evaluated again.
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and understand your concern.
Your symptoms suggest towards angina as said by your doctor.
Salt deficiency generally causes spasms and contraction in calf muscles and not in jaws only.
For your satisfaction you may get serum electrolytes done.
Your BP is also high which means you need either revision of dose or change of medications. Before going for angiography,it would be better to get the TMT done again.
I would advise you to consult your treating doctor and get yourself evaluated properly and also get your prescription revised. Better to get it done at the earliest and not postpone it for long.
At the moment you may double your dose of LNbloc 5 to 10 mg.
It is very natural for blood pressure medicines to loose their efficacy after some time and happens with everybody. Over a course of your life you may always need revision of your dose or medicine every few months or years.
I hope it helps,however you are most welcome to revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
