I had to take my GTN spray last might after having chest pain whilst exercising. The effects of the spray were horrible, much worse than previously. Not just the headache, but also severe nausea, clammyness and feeling very faint. My companion, a medical expert, almost called 999, she was that worried!
I have CAD with 5 stents fitted a year ago and now am left with microvascular angina which cannot be treated. Consultant has told me it's not life threatening but it is uncomfortable and inconvenient!
So, Does anyone know of an alternative to gtn? I think I'd rather not take it and just wait for the pain to subside, which it does usually.
