Hi I have a cardiologist appointment next month at last. My symptoms are daily ☹️ I get pain in my chest and surrounding area mostly at rest, it goes in to my neck, jaw, and down my left arm. I use my GTN spray it helps ease the discomfort. Tightness, heaviness, pain and occasionally I get a few sharp pains, Breathlessness, lightheaded etc.
I am on beta blockers, statins, Angina medication, blood thinners the usual medication. All recent test results are clear as expected with MVA.
I have now had to give up work as I have been off since December last year when I was admitted into hospital for a week as I have quite a sever attack. Come out with unstable angina and loads of meds. As this happens mostly at rest I am unable to work or drive at the moment.
I do not go a day without some sort of attack of the symptoms above ranging from 6 out of 10 to 10 out of 10. Using my GTN spray all the time. Called ambulance a couple of times. The paramedic being brilliant stating cardiac ischemia and treating me with ECG, morphine to help with pain no complaints. Can't praise them enough. Once arriving at hospital the opposite then starts. Waiting around for ten hours or more only to be told it’s ok you can go home now after seeing doctor for about 5-10 minutes. Once being told I had indigestion.
My quality of life at the moment is non existent. I use to play golf two or three times most week in the summer months, a couple of nights after work in the week and a full round at weekends. Even through the winter months once a fortnight at the weekends. But now I cant even think about it. I try to go for a walk around the block or local park when the weather is ok as the cold affects me as well. I get slight pain and discomfort whilst doing this as well when I do some house work.
sorry for having a moan but seen other people speak openly on here before and thought it might help.
Thanks for reading.
