Back in May I spent 9 days in hospital due to chest pain. In the front the back, pain in my arm(left). Shortness of breath. Discharged with diagnosis in recorded(not sure what that means).

Appointment made for a myocardial perfusion stress test and a rest test. No results as yet.

Cardiologist did confirm to me that they are looking at 2 possible narrowed arteries on the right side of my heart. Last year I had a 98% blockage of the main L A D just before the branch. Had a stent fitted.

More recently I was admitted to hospital again with similar symptoms and treated as unstable angina. Medication altered.

Find my self using GTN spray more often than I would like.(4 To 6 times a day) .I have in the past refused to use it. I'm still working. Still no diagnosis. Still waiting. And still FED UP.

Oh . And when you leave hospital you get told to come back if pain attacks again. FED UP of going back . Also blood results and all other tests that they do come back normal.

Did I mention I'm

FED UP.

    I can't offer any help but wanted to say just hang in there.

    Obviously your symptoms have flumoxed the doctors and it sounds as if diagnosis will take some time.

      Just been to my doctors. Explained the situation like it's getting me down. Getting stressed about it. No support from work.

      Worst of all not knowing what my latest results are.

    Dear jarrod1610 how old are you that might have some bearing on if you have another blockage in your heart artery but if the test say no then you might have prinzmetal's angina which I have and just coronary spasms but are still scary because it ruins your life and you never know if it's a heart attack or not I hate having it I have to deal with it and it has gotten a little better over the years
