Chest Pain

Tightness in the centre of the chest which often spreads to the left or right arm, back, neck, jaw or stomach. It can be brought on by exertion, emotion, a large meal, or exposure to cold and relieved with rest or relaxation. For relief of angina pains, people use glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) tablets or sprays which dilate the blood vessels and improve the blood and oxygen supply to the heart muscle. This helps to relieve the pain. Life Alert can give you a peace of mind knowing that you are protected 24/7 in case of an emergency.
