Well my angiogram done yesterday, and not as easy as I was led to believe, apparently my radial artery is tiny, hence a lot of pain initially. However I think I slept through the rest!!
Now I am confused, cardiologist who was not the most approachable of men, said arteries where clear but my coronary artery was 'spiralling/ due to very high blood pressure!! It did look a funny twisty shape when i looked on monitor.
I Really do not understand what he meant. He came round later and spoke incredibly quickly about changes to meds, and said I should not keep turning up at A&E just because my BP was high! I hadn't, only once when my GP had sent me. Thanks to sedation I was not up to arguing with him .
But my question is is it possibly to get angina without blocked coronaries? Can it be due to hypertension? Because I certainly get pain and discomfort on exercise which is relieved by GTN.
