Angina Is a
Sign of a Broken Heart
DEAR DR. DONOHUE:
Please explain angina. I have it. I am under the
impression that it is one step before a heart
attack. My father had angina and lived only three
months after he was told what he had. He had a
massive heart attack. I am concerned about this.
ANSWER: Angina is
chest pain described as a squeezing or pressure
sensation that comes on when a person is active,
in a particularly stressful situation or is out
and about in very cold weather. The pain leaves
when the activity stops, the stress is relieved
or the person becomes warm. The pain is felt in
the chest, but it can spread to the shoulder, the
arm or the neck.
Angina is a sign
that the heart isnt getting enough blood to
support the stress, emotional or physical, that
it must endure. It is the cry of a breaking
heart. The cause of decreased blood flow usually
is a buildup of cholesterol, fat and other
material in the heart arteries.
Angina is quite
treatable. Its not a prelude to an
inevitable heart attack if measures are taken to
increase blood flow to the heart muscle. People
with angina have to adopt programs that increase
blood flow through clogged arteries. They have to
lower their cholesterol, keep their blood
pressure at desirable levels and take part in
physical activities prescribed by their doctors.
They take medicines that ease the hearts
burden and that open up clogged arteries. They
might need angioplasty, the procedure where a
doctor threads a balloon-tipped soft tube to the
point of artery obstruction and then inflates the
balloon to squash it.
I dont know
when your dad died, but Im sure it was at a
time when the opportunities that now exist for
angina patients were not available.
