Myocardial Bridging

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.
