Could the pain in chest be due to coronary artery spasms?
I have seen two doctors for chest pain. I have had stress test tilt table test and angiogram done. One doctor says that it is coronary artery spasms and the other says its angina. I quit my stressful job, and haven t had an attack in awhile. But in the last week I have had two attack. They seem to be getting worse. I went to the ER for this last one and they said everything looked ok. Can you have a mini heart attack and not know? I am still experiencing chest pain, but don t want to go back to the ER.
I had a pacemaker 3 months ago. I get a lot of chest pain, which the cardiologist says is coronary artery spasm, but it seems to be coming from the pacemaker. I have had it checked, all is ok and is pacing 95%. But I still have pain. I take 25mgs metoprolol twice a day. Do I just have to put up with this, or can something be done? I am 68, weigh 46 kilos and am 151 cm
I have an 80 % blockage and another total blockage leading to my heart and have been referred to have a by pass. but I wonder if a stent could be just as useful .II am 72 and in good health , never had a heart attack and wonder if I should have the procedure. I have pain in the chest and left arm when I climb stairs or eat fatty food.

I am a 36 years old from India who recently was detected to have acute coronary syndrome with troponin T up to 0.98 ng and underwent PTCA and drug eluting stent placement to the left circumflex artery which was found to have 100% stenosis in the angiogram(single vessel disease in the LCx). Now that after 35 days the PTCA, I am highly worried about getting a second heart attack, or myocardial infarction, or even sudden death. My doctor said there is nothing to worry since I have adequate LV function, but I want to know whether it will be possible for me to live without the fear of having a second heart attack at least for the next few years? Everywhere in the net, the American Heart Associationsâ?? website says that 24% of men will die within one year after the heart attack and the WWW.WWWW.WW website says that acute coronary syndrome carries a risk of recurring within 2 months.? Please help me
