I'd like to thank all those who commented on my last post. I was feeling a bit low after my appointment with a cardiologist.
Every comment made by you was positive and encouraging.
Since then, I've been searching for info and reading other people's posts on here. I'm staggered at how many people have been through similar experiences and symptoms dismissed as possible indigestion etc. My symptoms do not relate to indigestion in any way and I can often predict the onset of chest pain and breathlessness, one example being the short walk from the car park in RD&E, up a gentle slope to the entrance. One spray of gtn half way relieves it.
My cardiologist claimed that microvascular angina has never been proved and doesn't exist.
How arrogant of someone in his position to think he knows everything and dismisses the growing mountain of research into MVA.
I'm not prepared to accept what he said and will be taking this forward. I've had some good advice here.
I'll be seeing my doctor first and asking her opinion on MVA, she's always been supportive, so I'll ask for a second opinion.
I'll be totally prepared this time with lots of info printed off.
I'm also going to write to PALS, explaining my concerns after the appointment. Last time I wrote to them, they were very prompt to investigate my claims and admitted there had been faults in my partner's treatment.
Once again, thank you all.
