I had a heart attack 14 months ago. An MI. Gradually over the year my angina has got to the point I could have a breakdown. I don't want to sound dramatic but I'm at my wits end. The pain is so bad every day. Even upon resting.
It shoots into my armpits down my arms into my hands. Up both sides of my neck and into my ears and teeth.
I cant lift anything or walk a few feet.
I haven't seen a doctor for so long I can't remember. I saw the diabetes nurse and was told just take your gtn. I do and it never makes a difference.
This pain is only just less than my heart attack pain.
At the time in hospital a doctor said he thought I had angina and microvascular angina but didn't write it down. I sent for my notes but it just described the stents going in.
I have quite a high pain threshold but I am getting worn down with this. My husband is fairly frantic.
Does anyone else have angina the same ? Is this really how it is ? I can't walk to the car now.
Cannot get a Doctors appointment. What should I do ?
