Recent Diagnosis

I was recently diagnosed with Angina. My grandmother had it for as long as I knew her. I'm only 44 years old. Does Angina shorten your lifespan? I currently take Lisinopril for high blood pressure, and Metroprolol for rapid heart rate/heart palpitations. Is there any treatment for Angina, or anything I should do for it, or is it just something that you have to live with?

How were you diagnosed? Did you have an angio test? Were there blockages?  Sometimes if there is a blockage, a stent can be done.
Are you on cholesterol med?
