I had 5 stents put in between 7/5 & 7/9/12, and this was my first day that I actually had stress and anxiety from a situation. I am having burning in my chest and some pressure is this another onset or is it in my head? I am not sure if it is angina or not so confused n what signs to look for.
It can be so hard to know the difference between stress related symptoms and true angina - unfortunately I'm not in a position to do so in this forum. But given that you had many stents placed so recently, I would take any symptoms of chest pain seriously and let your doctor know immediately.
