Could this be angina

Maxnpaddy profile image

Hi all I'm new member I've had 2 heart attacks I had a stent fitted on the first attack but the same artery blocked on the second and docs couldn't get wire through so treating it with meds. Problem is for a few weeks I've been getting a very strange feeling in my chest and i start feeling very ill and my BPM jumps from 55 to 75 and i have to rest a while until lowers does anyone else have this or knows what it could be.

I don’t think any of us can give you a diagnosis here, I strongly advise you to go and see your GP or call your cardiac team if you have one. While a ‘jump’ in BP might seem odd the numbers you have given are well within the normal range so I don’t think there is anything to get too concerned about there. The odd feelings you are getting might be cardiac, equally they might not be. I think you need to talk to a medical professional.


Thanks Steve really grateful

As well as what stevejb1810 replied, I would recommend that you watch the film "Forks Over Knives" it is on Netflix and YouTube. It is about global medical heart research and the findings. You might find it helpful.

Hi there - you're right it could be angina or a palpitation-type symptom caused by an abnormal heart rhythm. I'd book in to see your GP and get checked out.


Cheers Chris best get it checked.
