hopefully not: This form of angina differs from usual angina in that the pain can occur at rest and the cardiographic changes are different. Treatment is similar, as is clinical course. If you smoke, stop. If you are overweight, lose weight! take your meds as prescribed and if you continue to get pain, you need adjustment of your medications - perhaps a longer-acting form of nitroglycerin, or higher doses.
