Hi to everyone
I am 50 years old
I have had a heart problem since 2008, this is when I had my first heart attack. The doctors told me that I had a genetic problem with the left side of my heart. I had a stent put in, unfortunately this failed after about 8 months. Unfortunately, there was not much else they could do at that time as the artery showed the problem of it splitting if thet tried to stent again. I was asked if I wanted a by-pass, I weighed up the options and said no. This was mainly because the consultants could not give me a high enough chance of it succeeding. This was 6 years ago and I am still here.
I use to go to the hospital regularly, because of my chest pains. I don't no more, as I feel a bit of a fraud because they either say they can not see anything or they turn round and say there is nothing we can do to give you a better life.
Anyway, my chest pains have become different, they start at where my heart is and go round to the back of the chest. My jaw is okay, as well as my teeth and left arm. The strange thing is is that if I have a hot drink, this tends to help it. Is this angina or just indejestion????
