    Rinitadine for heartburn / indigestion, being withdrawn from sale

    Prinzmetals Angina

    This is the first time I've heard of that. Do the symptoms last long? A few minutes? If you purposely try to relax, can you make the pain stop? Do you do anything preventive? Like yoga, meditation, self hypnosis?
