Prinzmetal Angina Syndrome

I have Prinzmetal, I have been the hospital 3 times in 3 months for heart attacks. I have had 2 cath surgerys. They just keep changing my meds. I am so frustrated and scared. Is there a special doctor or hospital anywhere that is a specialist with this?

This discussion is related to prinzmetal angina.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. As the angina occurs due to vasospasm, the focus of therapy is to relieve the spam with nitrates and calcium channel blockers.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
