Well I was put on Aspirin, Beta-blockers, given a nitroglycerine spray yesterday - and referred to the Rapid Access Heart Unit - although the Doctor said don't get too excited about the 'Rapid' part of it's name. So I'm waiting for an appointment to come through - probably not till April? (I was talking to a lady on Sunday, and she'd been to A&E, and her appointment wasn't until the end of March).That's what happened to me, went a week with the pain before finally being talked into going to the emergency room.
Mine was a little more than that. Two things really. I had both a pulmonary embolism and a also one in my heart. Both from the break up of a big blood clot in my leg. The one in my heart is permanent, they did a heart catheterization and couldn't get through that one. No other blockage than that. The doc said if I had come in when the symptoms first started he could have cleared it, but I waited to long.Personally I'm not 100% convinced it's Angina, I suspect it 'may' be an interaction between Naproxen and my existing blood pressure medication - I didn't have any chest pains until after I started taking that.
