Hi I`m new to this site so here`s my story
I had 2 heart attacks and 1 cardiac arrest in 2011 when I was 56 ended up with 3 stents in the LAD (artery that runs down the left side) and 1 to the OM (back of the heart) my diagnosis now is unstable angina, ischaemic heart disease. refractory angina, microvascular angina and had a stroke in March 2017. The medication list is to long to put in here but for those worried about the side effects of Ranolazine don`t focus on them to much I`ve been on it for about 5 years and my current dose is 1 gram (1000 mg) twice a day just make sure you carry your safety card with you I also wear a dog tag with the same info on it. My pain is helped by Pregabalin and Oramorph which eases the pain to a tolerable level until thing go wrong then it a blue light trip to the local hospital for the usual tests and iv analgesia.
My exercise tolerance level is about zero and have frequent days when I don`t go out. My best advice is stay positive and take each day as it comes then make the most of it
