We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow angina symptoms to develop?"

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind angina consists of three steps:
Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors
Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to angina symptoms. Here are four possibilities:
- Mercury Toxicity
- Cigarette Smoke Damage
- Sphincter Of Oddi Dysfunction*
* symptoms can be very similar
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
severe mercury toxicity
past amalgam filling removal
jaw lymph node problems
smoking 6-20 cigarettes per day
frequent swollen cervical nodes
high alcohol consumption
... and more than 70 others
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of angina symptoms:
|Sphincter Of Oddi Dysfunction**
|Cigarette Smoke Damage
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process
** Symptoms can be very similar
