Unhappy ugggh. chest pain, trazodone, stopping lyrica and everything else.

So my spring was great and my summer was great, but it all turned downhill.

I recently have been having chest pain and other related issues. and was looking for what i would hoped to find a forum on heart disease or other related problems, but i could not find it.

I went to my doctor, and told him my array of symptoms. he wants to get a catscan of my chest to be sure. but thinks it is neuromuscular related i guess.

well here is my array of symptoms. it started out with measly dose of trazodone and a discontinuation of lyrica. Now before, on the apotec generic brand of trazodone i was fine. But now the pliva brand is like some sort of hell created, crack brand.

So at night i took the dose of the new pliva crud. and i end up having these fluttering or palpitating type heart symptoms. like palpitations. and so the next day i just move on. Now, during the day i have these squeezing type chest pain symptoms, it would be almost like my heart jumped out of my chest and into my throat. and so the pain would just radiate towards my left shoulder and my neck. These were very distressing for me, as i know left sided chest pain is bad. so i went to the doctor.

i told him my symptoms of trouble breathing short of breath, and all the other ones. he says he will set up a catscan for me, but not one time, does he give me anything for the chest pain. so i leave there utterly frustrated. he said to me take tylenol. so that's what im going to do in the meantime. and also in the last month i restarted the lyrica, only to find that it worked, but didn't take away all the chest pain i had been having from my problems.

one other note, is the artery/vessel, that is in your neck and goes up to your temples or temporal area. consistently spasms, every now and then. that is also troubling. not to mention i barely sleep now. ever since i stopped taking lyrica, it has been a downward spiral. and going back on the stupid stuff didn't help either, uggghh i just feel terrible, the worst i have felt in about a year.
dx: fatigue, eustachian tube dysfunction, esophageal motility disorder, neck spasm, , SOB at times, insomnia, anxiety.

fatigue, insomnia and neck spasm:under fibromyalgia

neurontin 300mg twice a day.
omega 3 fish oil, b complex,
acid blocker

need a better inhaler, albuterol causes too much side effects.

generally trying to find out what works for me
