Coronary artery spasms

Hi has anyone been diagnosed with a heart murmur and coronary artery spasms?

I had a sudden heart attack two years ago and had stent put in. Since last January I've had unstable angina - the pain was every day, and I was using my gtn spray every day as often as four times a day, and I would get angina in my sleep and at rest, and I'm always tired- and last week I was rushed to hospital where I had an angiogram which confirmed I have quite severe spasms in my coronary arteries. Ive also been diagnosed with a heart murmur. I asked the cardiologist if there was any surgery that such as a bypass which could rectify the condition, I was told no, it's controlled with anti- angina medication.

Does anyone else suffer from this and is there a remedy?

I don't smoke, I've been taken off blood pressure tablets, not diabetic, and have another 10kg's to lose, I don't drink either. So feel a little gutted😢

    Eat natural fat instead as part of a balanced eating plan.

    The best way to do this naturally is through daily exercise and eating the right foods.

    But remember, exercise is critical and must be done daily.
