I found a doctor who does Prinzmetal research and he does a blood test for Edothelial Ntric Oxide Synthase (eNOS) mutation. He said the majority of people with Prinzmetal have this mutation. He tested my blood and sure enough I have it. Curious how many others have been tested for this mutation. Has anyones doctor recommended this blood test? If not I'm curious why not....wonder if they are not aware of it as a screening tool???

      not quite it seems it is to help the cells function better metabolically and reduce the cramp effect similar sort of to Q10 action "we" are hopeing they will work synergistically... interesting 1st effect is to get my ST bit of my cardiocycle right more often so it has changed something...(after 8 days)

    Hey there smile

    I live in the Los Angeles area. Is your doctor anywhere near me where I could visit him?

      The doctor that does the research in Prinzmetal is Dr. Charles Glueck from Cinn.  You can google him and his research. He strongly suggests taking L-Arginine (9 grams).

      Thanks Ellierey.  I will have to read about it. Are there side effects? Do you take it with other medications?

      No I haven't experienced any and I've been on them 2.5 yrs. Yes I am on other meds such as Diltizem and nicorandil amongst others.
