Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi. I’m Dr. Mark. I’m a board certified physician and happy to assist you. How old are you?Does exertion bring on the pain?
The nature of the chest pain and the fact that it lasted only briefly speaks against the episodes being cardiac. If it was old nitroglycerin then it was probably outdated and not effective . Since you had a heart attack years ago, it’s time to be reevaluated anyway. I would recommend a CT coronary angiogram to examine your coronary arteries.
While the pains are not typical for heart pains, I never ignore any chest pains in a prior cardiac patient. Ok? Do you have any questions?
