Coronary vasospasm: We would presume that an episode of coronary artery vasospasm would cause chest pain. This pain could represent angina, unstable angina or heart attack - we wouldn't necessarily know just by the pain. So episodes of chest pain in patients with known history of coronary vasospasm need to be addressed and certainly not ignored.
