I am 90 years old and I have angina. I do not get chest pains or cramps, but at the base of my throat I get an ache ---- a very painful tension and my pulse bets like a run-away horse.
But after reading your book Your Body's Many Cries for Water, I started drinking water. When I get an attack of angina, i rest and drink water. Would you believe it? I don't need the medication anymore. I am so glad, because the medication burned my mouth and gave me oral ulcers. Now I carry a small bottle of water with me at all times in addition to drinking it at home. Thanks a million!
