Question: Angina symptoms

 mikeross1948 - Fri Mar 04, 2005 12:14 pm

I have two stints. first 1998 and then 2000. Last 30 days have started feeling bad and experiancing angina again. During exercise and now at other times. The last week when laying down at night to sleep, my legs and arms have started tingling and feeling numb and I lay awake for along time and changing positions doesn't help? At other times I have the same tingling in my arms? What might be happening?
:? Thanks, Mike

User avatar Dear Mike,

i would recommend that you call your doctor about these new onset anginal pains as this symptom might point to the fact that the stents are either getting stenosed or even blocked.

Regarding the tingling and numbness and inability to sleep, when you said changing positions does not help, do you mean does not help the inability to sleep or the tingling and numbness? How long does the tingling and numbness last? Is it associated with any chest pain?

Waiting for your update.

Thank you very much for using our website

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
