3yrs ago started occassional dizzy spells and groggy feelings in morning. About this time right arm pain caused me to go into shock Pain was between shoulder and elbow outside of arm.
Collesteroll check put me on Statins (Atarovastain 40mg) but started having muscle aches so left off since then. Want ot go back on to reduce Coll. but read on.
About 3 mths ago (just after stopping Statins) woke up 3am by all round upper chest pain. lasted about 3 mins. Put it down to the Statins but now realise this was more likely a Heart Attack albeit a small one. Did nothing at the time.
That arm pain is now also in the left arm and have to be careful how I move my arms otherwise it ramps right up.
Felt dizzy one evening and notice heart readings were 175/90 with 90 beat. Usually I am 145/65. Went to Hostpital had ECG which confirmed Heart Attack history and no other blood warnings though. Discharged.
Recently now getting quick angina type pains aroud upper torso and sometime in left arm. Once out walking got chest pains for 10 mins. Daily now I get these "twinges" with occassional twinge in neck.
My conclusion is that I am developing the unstable angina with possible Heart Attack likey as before. Due to consult with Dr. next week.
Thing is no good going to hospital without some positive indication that anything is wrong!
Any comment or advice welcome.
