I am still having pain right in the middle of my chest. The doctor diagnosed me with angina by looking at me after 2 stents were put in. I don't know what to do, the pain scares me!

Gp diagnosed pulled muscle, but on investigation from cardiac department at hospital, it was found to be stable angina. Angiogram and angioplasty were performed and medication was prescribed for the angina. Everything settled down until 1 year later when I had further angina attacks, so the above was repeated. A further year later, it happened again and I am now awaiting another angiogram/angioplasty for next week. I used to smoke 18 months ago, but on very strong advice from my consultant to stop, I immediately took his advice!
