I was diagnosed with it about 10 years ago. I saw Dr Amir Lerman at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Absolutely wonderful and knows a lot about Prinzmetal. My case was severe and they put in a Spinal Cord Stimulator bc I couldn't have bypass. I realize the cost in traveling we had to refinance our home but it's so rare all you hear is WHATS THAT? The earlier you get to a Dr that knows about it the better. If you have a Facebook there is a Prinzmetal Support Group. Members from all over the world. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
David, I saw Dr Amir Lerman Rochester. I was unable to have bypass surgery so Dr recommended a Spinal Cord Stimulator for the pain. It's helped a lot. We go to church with a couple that goes there. I was so frantic I called Mayo Cardio Dept, told them what I was diagnosed with, she actually didn't ask "what's that". She helped me set up an appointment and get set up in the system
Any chest pain area can cause anxiety. I have Prinzmetal Angina and there is many times I have been afraid to fall asleep. If possible get a wrist blood pressure and heart monitor and a notebook to journal. Write down date, time and what you are doing resting, sleeping, activity then you’re blood pressure and heart rate, describe the pain exactly where it is and what it feels like. Is it sharp, sting, a tightness or squeezing feeling. Give it to your cardiologist ❣️
