@tullah Has your cardiologist done any testing like Stress test,Echocardiogram or heart catheterization? The reason I ask my by pass surgery was done after all these test where done I was on the nitro patches before surgery triple by pass with 85%,90%95% blockage You are your own advocate so be proactive is my suggestion

Yes, I have had all the tests. Fortunately there is no obstruction and my heart seems to be otherwise healthy. Thank you for your concern, and I wish you all the very best.

Hello, I was diagnosed with Prinzmetal in Jan 2018 and am now having symptoms from inflammation – sever rashes on hands and legs, blisters in top of mouth, exhaustion, moving pain in hip joint, ankle, knee and foot (all on the right side). Last year I had paralysis of right foot after having a tick bite with a bullseye on that same right foot. I went from being a competitive rower to not being able to walk my dog for more than 15 mins without severe pain. I am receiving PT, have seen a rheumatologist (he says no arthritis), and a neuropsychologists says I'm OK. My GP seems to have given up on me. My cardiologist prescribed Nitro for spasms. I have had many mild to moderate cardiac spasms in the last 6 months and one that took 2 doses of Nitro before subsiding. I'm not sure where to turn for help.
