The best medicine is the one you like, says Penny Williams.
But sometimes it can be just as effective and sometimes not, she says.
“The right medicine is often not the one that is the best for your condition, and sometimes the best thing to do is to wait a little bit,” she says, explaining that if you need to use a chest-pain medicine, it’s important to get an opinion from your GP first.
It can be difficult to know what is the right medicine for you, but a GP or other health professional can help you determine what is right for you.
If you’re not sure what your doctor thinks about your condition and your response to treatment, there are plenty of websites where you can ask questions, find out more about the treatment and the benefits.
The main benefit of using a chest pump is the increased blood flow, which means the doctor can use more oxygen to the heart to increase the blood flow and oxygen supply to your lungs.
What if my doctor doesn’t want me to use one?
If your doctor doesn�t want you to use chest pumps, they should have evidence that the treatments work, says Dr Williams.
If the chest pump isn�t working for you or if it is causing more problems, the doctor may recommend a different type of treatment.
“They are often used to treat a type of pneumonia, or for severe pulmonary edema,” she explains.
“They also have other purposes, such as to reduce the risk of pneumonia during pregnancy, and to help prevent infection during childbirth.
However, the most important benefit of the chest pumps is that they can make your chest pain go away, says Williams.
Your doctor can also recommend other chest-pump treatments, such like massage or acupuncture, to help reduce chest pain.
