from a real life experience

Every report you hear on To Your Health is based on new scientific research. This is an exception. Sometimes medical information is not new, until you hear it for the first time. This one may be in that category. I have a friend who, while out walking with her husband, felt a tightness in her throat. She mentioned it to her husband, a physician. A few minutes later he asked if the tightness continued. It had. He recognized it as one of the less common signs of angina or inadequate blood flow to the heart. After tests, the woman underwent a quintuple bypass. She’s doing fine, but how many of us would have recognized tightness in the throat as a sign of angina, which usually shows as chest pain?
