I am a cardiologist. Would be happy to assist you today.

Is it constant or intermittent? Any specific time / posture / activity that seems to trigger it? Any accompanying tingling or burning ?

How has your health generally been since the heart attack ?

Have you been able to keep your blood pressure, sugar and lipids ( fats) under control?

What medications do you take?
