I started suffering with angina in 2016 which led to a bypass in 2017, the angina pain stopped after the bypass. Although I had been prescribed with nitroglycerin (GTN) spray I never used it mainly because so many people said it gave them horrendous headaches.
In October last year I started having Angina pain again which, after a week, resulted in 2 stents being fitted. I was given a spray by the hospital but again the pain has stopped.
I seem to have a real fear of using the pump because of the headache stories.
I carry the pump with me everywhere now and wondered what experience people had with using nitroglycerin and if they would hesitate to use it?
I know that the angina could return at any time and I know I may have to use the spray rather than suffer the pain so wondered what to expect.
