does anyone know something about Variant Angina ( apparently also called Prinzemetal's angina) ? My doctor thinks that i might have it but he is not really sure... he has to do some more tests (Wednesday i am having an Echo...). Is there someone who knows something about it? All i found on the web were symptoms (that , like my doctor said, were clearly similar to mine) and little info about treatments...I am pretty much confused, because of my age (18) i should not even be concerned with having angina but the doc i went to said it is because of my family history ( my grandma died of a heart attack when she was only 39 and had her first heart attack 2 days after she gave birth to my uncle- 23 ) it might be probable to have this Variant Angina. Anyway, if someone knows something or can advise me on any kind of heart issues is more than welcome... i am pretty much scared...

thank you
Kate confused
