Recently been diagnosed with coronary artery disease (CAD
Im a 46 year old female who had recently been diagnosed with CAD. I made a trip to the hospital about 2 months ago for chest pain and other cardiac symptoms. A follow up with my cardiologists resulted in an heart catheterization. They basically told me nothing and left it up to my cardiologist to inform me. He tells me that they found blockages…that’s it. He then prescribed a beta blocker, cholesterol meds, daily nitro (once a day) and blood pressure pills. I was not having them before, but now I’m having night angina attacks. They are horrible. Has anyone else had this issue? I wake up multiple times during the night with sweats and chest pain. I take a nitro under the tongue and it helps. It seems that I’m only having them when at rest.
