A coronary artery spasm is a temporary constriction of the muscles in the wall of one of the arteries that supplies blood flow to heart muscle. This can narrow and decrease or even completely prevent blood flow to part of the heart muscle. Coronary spasm is rare. Approximately 2 percent of people with angina, or chest pain and pressure, experience coronary artery spasms.

The condition can lead to chest pain angina and even a heart attack. These spasms are sometimes referred to as Prinzmetal’s angina or variant angina. Unlike typical angina, which usually occurs with physical activity, coronary artery spasms often occur while someone is resting and can wake them from sleep. The pain can also occur with exertion.

The pain or discomfort usually feels tight, gripping or squeezing and can vary from mild to severe. It is usually felt in the center of the chest, but may spread to either or both shoulders, back, neck, jaw, arm or hand. Many people only feel an unpleasant sensation or discomfort in their chest. Some people may have shortness of breath, rather than pain.

Episodes usually last less than 15 minutes. Coronary artery spasm that lasts for more than 15 minutes can permanently damage heart muscle and lead to a heart attack. Most patients are between ages 40 and 60. Forty percent of patients with coronary spasm pass out with angina because of a serious arrhythmia. Sudden death can occur because of arrhythmia. Spasms can damage the artery wall.

Chest pain can be caused by muscle spasm, an inflamed cartilage in the chest, unknown factors or an issue with the esophagus or stomach

Coronary artery spasms may be triggered by:

  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Exposure to cold
  • Low magnesium level
  • Anti-migraine medicines, antibiotics, chemotherapy medicines
  • Drinking large amounts of alcohol
  • Menstrual cycles
  • Excessive thyroid hormone
  • Chronic allergic conditions such as Samter’s Triad
  • Extreme emotional stress
  • Ephedrine-based weight loss products
  • Use of amphetamines , cocaine, marijuana,
  • Not drinking enough water

Treatment of coronary artery spasms may include medications such as:

  • Nitroglycerin
  • Calcium channel blockers, which can help reduce muscle tightening in your chest
  • Statins

 The risk of coronary artery spasms can be reduced by following a low carbohydrate, high fat, grain -free diet, taking appropriate nutritional supplements, lowering blood pressure, losing weight and being physically active.

Wow. That’s too bad. I’m surprised that chest pain wasn’t Enough of a reason! The staff at the hospital  I visited were incredibly supportive about my decision to get checked out.

Linda, your family history and symptoms should have been quite enough for them to shut-up and do some routine tests, maybe they were having a bad day and didn’t want to be bothered with someone else’s suffering...lot of that goin around.

LCL, I hate to raise this old dog, but have you made any progress raising magnesium? Is it possible these twinges are the latest manifestation of low RBC Magnesium?

Hopscotch, that’s a good point.  I’ve been taking boron for a bit now, so going to test RBC magnesium again - I’ll let you know!
