    Big hugs from this end! Try to stay positive, its sounding like you a keeping check ups going.  Its easy said but try not to worry, as the worry will make matters worse but of course dont take any risks, go by your instinct  and see the professionals if you have any pains

    Dear Diana, unfortunatley a lot of us have been in the same situation as yourself, my angina was ok up to about 6 months ago then it just went silly, lm getting it most days now which is not funny.

    keep your chin up and stay positive , try not to worry to much lm sure your GP and the hospital will be trying to sort you out , the cardiology departments always seem to be one of the best departments in our hospital , so hopefully yours as well.

    Hey, take care,  rest and hopefully things will get better soon.

    love and hugs Lady Amelia xxxxx

    Hi!. Healthy or sick we exist for a while. Try to be positive. I know it's easy to say harder to do. When you go througth bad moments, remember that you are not alone, that other people understand how you feel. Stress and negative feelings are not good for our illness. I think that going out with other people, doing activities also helps in our case.cheer up!

      Hi Diana

      Had triple bypass in 2008, 4 stents later and recently arterial spasm or microvascular desease. Lol. Seems more like Prinzmetal to me. Lol! I eat sensibly, exercise e.t.c but genetics is what i am battling. Could not tollerate statins at all. Been on Rapatha medication for some 1.5 years and it brought down the ldl cholesterol. Obviously i need to do more?

      Some 3 weeks ago started on a plant based diet. Read lots of positives stuff

      Re great benefits for the Heart. So? I too get the episodes. Being on my slow telease angina medication helps this. I will keep staying active, exercise as best i can and already having lost 3.5 kg from 90 kg to 86.5kg. I even started meditation. Something i always found a little hard to do. There are apps one can down load. All these things can not be bad for you but to help manage my condition. I suggest each and everyone should try also. To be actively involved alone with medication is the key i think.

      The other choice is to sit back and relly just on medication alone. So try a plant based diet, meditate, exercise and take your medication.
