This should be interesting for those suffering chest pain. TY for posting, Cindy


Great. MaryF


Interesting post.

I am at this present time waiting for a CT Cardiac Angiogram for chest pain.

I found Syndrome X interesting and I shall be pointing this syndrome out to my cardiologist. At present they have discovered I have a couple of slightly leaky valves which I believe is also a fairly common find with other Hughes patients.

In regard to Professor Hughes comment on the weather and Vitamin D3 my recent D3 result were marginally low.

I have hypoparathyroidism and medicated for low Vitamin D3 with calcitriol so was very surprised to find my levels were low. Due to the resent low results I am now supplementing further to bring my levels back into the normal range.

I feel due to the awful weather and lack of sunshine many will be low on this essential vitamin and suffering the side effects.........bone pain, weak muscles, low mood ect.


Thank you Lynn. I will repost in LUpus Patients Understanding & Support (LUPUS).


where on this site does it give the INR being in the 3 to 4 range ?? anyone ??
