coronary atery spasms

3652800?1226590323
I have a bad case of artery spasms.  The Dr. was able to get the spasms on video and pictures during an angiogram.  The problem I have is that not just a portion of the artery spasms the whole artery on both sides of my heart spasms, the Doctors have said this is very rare and are trying to treat with medication.  The meds make me very ill, and unable to cope with simple day to day activities.  Does any one know if there is a surgical procedure or any thing else that can help this problem.

I too have been diagnosed with severe coronary artery spasms where ALL of my arteries spasm (Mayo Clinic, MN). Been medicating since 2004. I have an coronary artery anomaly going on with my heart, so are missing major arteries (such as the left coronary) and have "Baby" arteries and veins. For the past 4 years, not only have I been dealing with the coronary arteries, but also with Cerebral (brain) artery spasms (strokes)!!!  If anyone knows of new research out there, I am game to try!  Been through EECP three times.

I just wanted to add that the theory behind people with coronary artery spasms going through 7 weeks (an hour EVERY day) of EECP (External ElectroCounterPulsation Therapy) is that the blood from my feet/legs/hips pump forcefully up to the heart to help oxygenate, nitrate and hopefully build NEW collateral arteries.
