Well where do I start?
Today I was told I had suspected Angina after attending a Rapid Chest Pain Access Clinic. I approaching 60 and class myself as relativley fit undertaking up to regular cycle rides up to 90 miles, open water lake swim events and the odd Sprint Triathlon. I have managed to continue exercise but felt discomfort, more pressure than pain and no shortness of breath. I found the whole experience very confusing as I believed I held a good level of fitness, despite being a bit on the chunky side... However the family history may have been a major factor. So.. I will have a few more tests, an Echocardio and an Angiogram in the weeks ahead. I am trying to remain positive and deal with it, I just hope it does not affect my fitness activities too much. I can't speak highly enough of the staff at the clinic who were first class and recognised how gutted I was when they give me their findings.
So now it's medication time and this is a first for me!
So onwards and upwards.
Seasons greetings and peace to you all🎅
