How do you diagnose Prinzmetal's Angina?
And should I seek a specific kind of doctor to go to again? The last doctor I saw didn't seem to think much of what I was saying.
He told me its like the kind of thing you get after pneumonia or bronchitis when you've coughed too much, then your chest walls will be inflamed and sore. But I've had URI alot and this doesn't feel like that
thats good to know :)
So should I try this Ibuprofen thing and then go back in if it doesn't get better?
wouldn't there be other symptoms if it was a Respiratory Infection?

Thank you for taking the time to talk to me.
that word is on my discharge papers
