Microvascular dysfunction diagnosis

Posted , 15 users are following.

Hi I'm 50 this year, and have recently been diagnosed with Microvascular dysfunction. (Cardiac X syndrome/Microvascular angina) usually im a fit and healthy person, don't smoke, since starting the menopause I have gained weight.

I know that I need to change my lifestyle as I get breathless and have chest pain on the smallest exertion, ie going upstairs and this weekend I got out of breath dancing to one song at wedding! It's quite frightening and although I should.know what to do I've had no guidance from my Dr or cardiologist apart from 'take these tablets what has everyone else done to help their condition? Regards Francesca
