Hi does anyone else get a lingering dull ache after an angina attack? I have microvascular angina. Sometimes for hours/days after chest pain, I will have an achy feeling around my heart. It kind of feels like my heart or at least a muscle is strained or overworked. I mentioned it to a couple of doctors and they have been very dismissive about it. One even said at A&E you can't feel pain from your heart. I then thought then what is angina pain then?
Anyway, I just wanted to know if this dull lingering ache is a different kind of problem from my angina. Maybe even inflammation or something.
My blood pressure or high pulse rate can trigger an angina attack. I'm going back to work on Monday after nearly a year off. I'm a bit anxious I won't cope. I spoke to Cardiologist about working and doctors, they all say I will be fine. This baffles me because up to now I haven't been fine and I am triggered by minimal exertion, stress amongst other things. So, in doctors minds medication can control angina to a large extent so long term prognosis is good. Yet I haven't been stable and usually 5 days out if 7 I have chest pain.
I ended up in A&E on Wednesday. Just wondered if I am setting myself up for a fall if I return to work too early?
Thanks for any help x
