Is there help for someone who has been diagnosed with myocardial bridging, but can not take medication for this condition due to extremely low blood pressure and heart rate? I experience pain several times a day (not severe). I also have a problem with shortness of breath upon exersion. I am 61, was very athletic and unfortunately I did smoke, but do not now. Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated.
There are intervention procedures for bridging, but it depends on the length/thickness of the bridge which may determine which is the best option through your cardiologist. A small bridge can sometimes be held by a stent, but sometimes surgery is preferred, to release the artery.
