After a couple of months suffering with what I thought was indigestion, my GP sent me for an ECG, then informed me I had Angina. I'm 66, but have never smoked, only drink occasionally, and apart from having a sweet tooth have a quite healthy diet, so this came as a bit of a shock. I am taking aspirin, and have a Nitromin spray. However I'm confused as to how to deal with the symptoms. I can go for a few hours and feel fine, usually when indoors. Then feel a bit of discomfort, though not actual pain, and now and then actual pain in my chest right collar bone and neck. Do I use the spray when it's just uncomfortable? Or wait until it's actually painful? The Nitromin gives me a headache and slight giddiness, so I don't want to use it unecessarily. I'm seeing my GP next week for advice, but would appreciate any helpful feedback now.
