Angina subsides during exercise

My angina has begun during exercise to reoccur approximately six years after having stents. It is very predictable and goes away after about a minute of rest.

After a 30 to 45 minute period of brisk walking with several occurrences of mild predictable angina and required rests, I experience no more angina. This is true even when walking briskly up steep hills.

What might be happening to cause the angina pain go away after this initial warm-up period?

Hello and welcome to e health forum.

From the description it seems that you might be having restenosis of your coronary stents.

The best way to analyse this would be a stress test and a echocardiogram.

You might consult your doctor for a examination and the nesseary tests for a proper evaluation and treatment.
