I hope you will watch the 30 minutes this episode, ANGINA, entails. Joan Jahnke was a long time cardiac nurse/charge nurse and describes her journey from first spasm 'full stop' (my term) during activity all the way through finally having an LAD vasospasm onset during her 3rd cath that sent her into SCA (sudden cardiac arrest).
The MANY symptoms that can present are well described by Joan.
If you've ever heard...."you have vaso-spastic angina but we don't know why'......

Meet Joan and Fred Jahnke as they describe how they learned of Joan's illness. Initially her main symptom was shortness of breath, but that progressed to chest pressure and ultimately to chest pain. Learn how Fred and Joan live with her microvascular disease and the often frightening symptoms.
