Stop, Sit down and rest.
Use your GTN spray or tablets. Take the GTN as advised. The pain should go away within five minutes. If it doesn’t, take GTN again.
If the pain has not gone away within five minutes of taking the second dose of GTN, call 999 immediately.
Rest until the ambulance arrives.
Tips you may wish to share:
- Encourage a slow start with a gradual build up to small bouts of activity (this just needs to be a few minutes). This can increase over time
- Progress with duration first, rather than intensity of an activity
