I have pots, i get chest pain like angina when exercising since 18, im 22. I've had ecg, stress ecg, echo, cmri, mr angiography. Should I do any other?

It's time to investigate a different potential cause. The 2 usual suspects are musculo-skeletal and gastrointestinal. Your pain could be due to gastritis, esophageal reflux, peptic ulcer disease, etc. Or fibromyalgia, costochondritis, myofascial syndrome. ...Read more

I have chest pain. Doctor called it angina. How do I manage it? How does this affect me in the future? Could it have any remote link with thalassemia?

I have chest pain. Doctor called it angina. How do I manage it? How does this affect me in the future? Could it have any remote link with thalassemia?

Take it seriously: Chest pain and diagnosis of angina is no joke, you're still young, follow your cardiologist 's advice carefully, go for cardiac cath if need be, reduce weight, stop smoking, control your blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol. Thalassemia by itself isn't a major risk factor for developing angina/cardiovascular disease, good luck ...Read more
