Q: My brother has been having digestive issues for over 10 years and for the last 4 years, he has been getting a lot of chest pain and headaches. The chest pain comes on when he is resting/inactive. I have read that this could be prinzmetal angina, would this be a reasonable observation?

Also, he is currently being treated by a Nutritional Doctor who believes my brother has low stomach acid, which is preventing many essential nutrients getting to his body. He also believes the lack of protein breakdown is preventing neurotransmitters being created, which may be the cause of his anxiety. Any assistance you can provide would be fantastic!?


A: Your specific health issues are not my area of specialty; however, I do want to refer you to where you can learn more about coronary artery spasms (Prinzmetal's angina).

I recommend you continue to work with your medical physician to determine the cause and appropriate treatment of your brothers chest pain and headaches.  Also, discuss the possibility of low gastric acid, so your brother can be tested.
