Hi, I'm 62, new on here and would welcome any advice on my puzzling diagnosis.
I've had BP for years - taking 2.5mg Ramipril and Atorvastatin 20mg for raised cholesterol.
On 28 Sept I experienced the tight chest pain, cold sweat, lightheaded feeling and nauseousness and called 999. After normal ECG and bloods, the 2nd enzyme blood test 6 hours later at A&E was 2,500, so was admitted to CCU
An angiogram showed that my LAD artery had mild plague disease only, tapering of the mid to distal segment seen. Left circumflex artery: minimal plaque disease only, but was told I had significant muscle damage.
Discharged on 3rd day with Ramipril 5mg, Atorvastatin 80mg, Brilique 90mg x 2, Bisoprolol 2.5, Aspirin 75mg and a nitrate under tongue spray.
I'm due to see the Cardiologist on 16th Nov, so hoping for answers then. I'm experiencing very low mood, tiredness and weakness. I'm now worrying about going back to work in a stressful dementia care home as I'd been feeling the strain before my MI. Any words of wisdom would be welcome from anyone on here.
Thanks for reading this
