Introductions: still got pains post MI and PCI
just finding my way around after having heart attack (MI) on 12 July 2012 and subsequently having one stent fitted (PCI) on 18 July 2012
Still getting chest pains and have been back to hospital 3 times now.
each time all ECGs are ok and blood tests normal they even did a repeat angio gram to check for any problems but all ok
They suggested stomach problems but I am already on lansaporzale and I have even taken gaviscon when got the pain but to no effect the GTN sppray has little or no effect and the last time when waiting in A & E to be transferred to a ward whilst waiting blood test results they gave me somemorphine IV to ease the pain problem was they only got 5 ml of the morphine in before the pain got to be wrose than when I went to hospital and they stopped the injection
any ideas on what is wrong ???
feel a fraud calling 999 etc when still got the chest pains even after taking 3 lots of GTN over a 20 min period only to spend 24 hours in hospital and told everything is ok
am now getting reluctant to call them again and waste everybodys time
hope someone can point me in the right direction
I have made an appointment to seemy GP but htat is not until next Monday
