Welcome to Connect @lisab62.
I moved your message to this older discussion thread in the hopes that you can meet other members talking about Prinzmetal’s angina (also known as variant angina). I’m also tagging @smiles @HeartPatches and @donnac1969, who more recently written about angina.
@lisab62 -how long have you been living with variant angina and what do you do to manage it?
About 5 years. Tried combination of medications and still could not get it stable and then went to Mayo in Rochester. I’m not able to have heart bypass and last September had a spinal cord stimulator put in along with medications
@tiny7. I use Dr Amir Lerman. You can contact the Mayo cardio dept, advise them your diagnose and ask them to recommend the best physician Gods blessings to you❤️
I, too, have the same. Diagnosed 14 years ago. Many years without symptoms while taking low dose amlodipine. Steering now from month #5 with symptoms while trying varying dosages of amlodipine and none acting nitro.. neither are helping. So frustrating. Side effects from meds are as bad as chest pain. Next step is stress test but I know this is printzmetals. So discouraged. Hope your journey is better.
