Acute coronary syndrome

Submitted by webmaster on Thu, 10/25/2018 - 11:15

Hello Doc,
I have been diagnosed with acute coronary syndrome manifesting as unstable angina. I feel a tightness in my heart area and sharp pains when at rest. I smoked for about fifteen years but have been off for 5. Anyway, is this a permanent condition? Can it go away? My echo and ECG show that my heart muscles are slightly larger than normal and the exterior muscles surrounding the heart is thickening. There is also a thickening of the vein/ artery that carries blood to the heart. What needs to be done to reduce the thickness and rtestore my heart to proper functioning.
