Nov 10, 2016 · Chest tightness even after stents in Heart & Blood Health

Your supplement and exercise routines sound great. You have given me incentive to do a little more. Thx

No problem. Also, the vitamins i mentioned are in addition to a good, general multi-vitamin.

For prescribed meds, i currently only take metropolol and lipitor. In addition to this, i take probiotics, c10q, fish oil, and vitamins b (compound), d, and e. Stay away from l-arginine – its been found to actually exacerbate heart problems.

Sounds like they’re missing something. I had a 33 yr old kid in rehab with me who told me he had to convince his cardiologist that he had heart issues – he ended up having a SETUPLET bypass. I would look for a good heart guy or pulmonologist.

Yes, your situation sounds very similar. My one-year anniversary of the event is tomorrow, and i am just starting to operate on a less fearful basis. I guess we just have to follow our health plans, continue with our lives, appreciate every day, and hope for the best.

i received three stents as the result of my attack. i was given an angiogram two years earlier and told i had insignificant blockage for my age (no spot greater than 30% blockage). at the time of my heart attack, one artery was 100% blocked, and another had blockages of 70 and 50% (in the same artery). i was only 61, not overweight, and had quit smoking several years before. the primary culprit was probably stress, so you need to do whatever helps with this, even if its a med you don’t like, such as xanax.

not really. my $5000 false alarm happened just a couple of months ago. its very dofficult – i don’t like to spend that kind of money needlessly, but don’t really want to take a chance on dying. i carry nitro at all times. i was told that if it DOESN’T work, it’s probably not a heart issue. unfortunately, i was told this in the hospital after alteady being brought in. its a difficult thing to those who experience it, and heart specialists really don’t seem to be able to help with this much.

I have the same thing, and it’s been going on for a year now. I actually called 911 recently and was hospitalized because i swore i was having another heart attack, although this proved to be false. In talking later to my doctor, he said i have to learn to differenciate symptomolgy, which supposedly comes with time. His suggestion to me was to be seriously concerned if i have symptoms equal to, or greater than, what i had during my initial heart attack, and to go into emergency mode if this happens. Otherwise, it is probably “normal” discomfort that should diminish with more time.
