cardiac migraines

I am wondering if anyone has migraines that are effecting their heart vessels... I have been a migrainer for over 50 years.. and the past three years my migraines have been mimicking angina attacks... many doctors do not believe this but I have kept records and when I have a cardiac migraine... I do not have a head migraine... and vica versa... they are becoming more severe and more debilitating...
Is there anyone out there that has been having these same symptoms...
pain and/or tightness in chest
heart palpitations and fluttering (but pulse normal)
heart pounding in chest
shallow breathing
fatigue and general malaise..
After the attack is over I feel just like I do with the aftermath of a
head migraine...
These are getting worse and I fear they are effecting my heart and my health. I have had many heart tests, the halter monitor, the weeklong monitor and the results are negative for heart problems.
I am a 77 year old active woman and am mostly a weather migrainer and worse in the late winter and spring.
Would appreciate any help from others who are having these types of migraines.
Thank you.... Desperate in the Kootenays
