Hi and Welcome to HealingWell, Jacton!! yeah
 
I'm not exactly sure that I understand your question.  Are you having problems with Arterial Spasms?  The following article may help to explain that for you...
 
When you say you're O2, too...he wants you on oxygen, or are you on it already?
 
I've had a problem with arterial spasms in the past, and that can cause the artery to spasm to the point that not enough oxygen gets through to the heart.  Is this what you have?
 
Please keep in touch, and let me know how you are doing!

Thank you Teri for answers to my post. Yes, that is what I have. For yrs they thought I had 55% blockage and didn't want to do anything still it was at least 90%. In 2004 I had another heart cath and the Dr. said I had a very small artery and he is sure it is a birth defect. That is what causes the spasms when it gets overworked. I get so short of breathe with it and in Feb. the pain was so intense and BP was 214/110 that we called 911 and I was sure I was having a MI b/c it didn't feel like other attacks I have had before. But it was after blood test were taken and kept me overnight to make sure. Dr said I was very lucky b/c if I stayed home and didn't get help it would of beeen a MI. He put me on O2 at that time for home and when I get pain I put it on and it does help get the O I need. I have chaged my life style completely and I know I can't do things like I used too so we will be a good girl and do just that. When it gets when nothing helps much then we will do surgery. I will visit this site often b/c I see someone cares about my ? and I enjoy the chats too. Thank you again and anyother info you get about this ,please let me know. E-mail is tojac@bright.net

Well jacton, I'm glad you cleared that up-I just wanted to make sure we were on the same wavelength here! tongue
 
So you only use the 02 when you have the arterial spasms-not all the time?  How often do you have these spasms?
 
It must be pretty rough for you and I wish you all the best!!  Keep us posted here and join in any of the threads here on this Cadiac section and help support others, or add an opinion-just basically jump in anywhere you'd like! yeah
