Singer Toni Braxton (40) revealed that she was diagnosed with Coronary Microvascular Angina, also known as Syndrome X, a couple of months ago, forcing her to drop television dance contest Dancing with the Stars. However, she is determined to join the upcoming season of the show.
The Un-Break My Heart singer had to scrap a series of Las Vegas shows in May and June before severe breathing problem forced her to call off the show. She later checked into the hospital and has since been diagnosed with Coronary Microvascular Angina, which occurs when not enough oxygen makes it to the heart. The singer is recovering quickly and is looking forward to compete in the coming season. She said all she wants is five weeks of rehearsals without chest pain.
Well, Microvascular Angina is a condition where patients have chest pain even without the blockage of coronary arteries. It occurs due to poor functioning of the tiny blood vessels that nourish the heart, arms and legs.
