Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Just one other thing Richard--the angiogram was clear and did the cardiologist consider something call Prinzmetal's angina?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


there was just some slight narrowings in the angio which he was not to concerned about but he has kept me on the medication he did not mention prinzmetal's angina just this syndrome x

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well Richard you are on appropriate medications for that and for Coronary Syndrome X but I think the pain may well be from something else. My first thought is a disk problem in your thoracic spine and I'd get an MRI to look for that. Another possibility would be a peptic ulcer and unless you've had upper endoscopy to look for that I'd do that too. I'd also screen you for H pylori--the so-called ulcer bug.
