    Re: A New Pain

    Shirley you have your O2 on right? The pain could be multifaceted and I am glad you have a call into your cardio. Make sure you hear from someone tonight . Nights can be scary esp. in light of what you are describing.

    Sounds like a typical , unpleasant CP. WHat do your nail beds look like and your lips? are they more dusky then usual? Do you have a plan for nitro at all if you are uncomfortabe or a pain killer? I am concerned while writing this that you may need to head over to the ER or even call 911. CP is a tough call and I do not like to sit here second quessing it . Your heart is more then likely spent today , you may have a liitle extra fluid on and those small vessels in the restrictive area are asking for more O2 and nutrients. How long has this been going on.

      I'm sorry to hear that you are having this problem. I used to get that type of pain all the time, and was told by my docs that it was related to my obstruction and CHF issues. I don't get it nearly as frequently now, but when i do see my feet swelling up, i can pretty much bet i'm going to have that neck pain too. I'm glad you have a call into your cardio... and hope that you get to feeling better very soon.
