I had a heart attack in the beginning of October of this year (confirmed by elevated cardiac enzymes) and in the angiogram (sp) they did not find a blockage but were able to see where the damage was and said that one of my small arteries "clamped down" but had re-opened. They diagnosed me with unstable angina.
I already have severe labile blood pressure (it will vary between 95/45 and 235/140, and can drop or raise by 40+ points in minutes and has happened under general anesthesia leading to severe complications when treated), mild LVH, sinus tach, v-tach (EKG confirmed) and severe exercise intolerance (just getting dressed or trying to brush my hair can trigger it, with tach and SOB) and "improper" positional hypertension (will soar when I stand still, stand up and plummet when I lay down).
I am using my nitro way too often (in my opinion) and do not even use it for every chest pain I get, only when the pain is unrelenting. (at least 5 a week, usually more).
I also have other conditions that are caused by vagus nerve issues (Gastroparesis) and am thinking that this is also autonomic in nature and possibly Mitochondrial.
I had no insurance when I had the heart attack (husband was out of work and just got a new job) and there is a 9 month waiting period for anything pre-existing...
My question is... since I have already had a heart attack from vasoconstriction am I more likely to have another from it?
