I'm 56, non smoker and obese.
Following an episode on Friday (tight chest and arm pain) I was taken to A&E. ECG & Bloods were clear but diagnosed as angina.
I was in a bit of shock at A&E (still am!) and didn't ask the questions I should have.
I've been given some meds and told that an appt will come through from the "chest clinic".
I have no knowledge of Angina and I don't even know what I should/shouldn't be doing prior to the gp visit. Walking up and down stairs gives me some tightness in my chest with an ache in my left arm all of which eases at rest - but happens often. Could this just be anxiety?
What is the standard process from here?
What sort of immediate adjustments should I be making and what questions should I be asking the GP (I've made an appt of my own back this week)
