I take Atenolol 50 mg, and Losartin 50 mg - both for Blood Pressure, and also Clopidogrel 75 mg for Stent My doctor just prescribed meloxicam 15 mg for what I would assume is for inflammation. He only wants to go for 3 Months.
One time right after taking the 15mg meloxicam pill it started at about 9 pm and lasted all next day but I was active <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> did not feel any other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack like symptoms only this abnormal feeling with anxiety. Its been about 60 hours after the last 15gm meloxicam pill and I did not have an episode last night so I am hoping its the cause. My blood work is normal BTW.
and nobody has bothered to look into any of those interactions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> effects.

I put it off until late october/early november everything happened all at once, the pain was so strong i thought i was having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the panic attack only made it worse so i rushed to the ER, had various test such as a blood test, urine test, EKG and checked my blood pressure and everything came back normal and i was sent home.

the headaches and pain in your jaw and face could be TMJ I was a dental assistant for 24 years before I had disc problems and a dentist would be able to diagnose it , it would be worth a shot.. I get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> palpatation's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> had to wear a halter monitor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was told I had an extra heart beat and that's why i got them. As far as anxiety could be caused by stress I take ativan for them.If it was me as far as the pain in your arms you should get an MRI to rule out any disc problems .
I'm worried about the side effects which include upset stomach and stomach ulcers, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack or stroke. I've had diahrea off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on for the last week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> don't want to agrivate it with anything else.
Frequently I get a pain in my right lower rib when I hunch forward or move my upper body. It is worse when i'm sitting down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> bend over. It doesn't hurt all the time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> comes in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> out. But when it does hurt, it hurts for a long time.
I'm ok now but not fine. I did not have any disease in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> ( no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack, no clot, no valve problem, no stent to place or vessel to by-pass) but a rather new to medicine diagnosis of severe cardiac endothelial microvascular dysfunction otherwise know as cardiac syndrome X.
Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Also, NSAIDS reduce blood flow to the kidneys <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> over time will destroy your kidneys if you don't have a stroke or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack first! So, you have to ask yourself: "Hmmm, which one do I want--pain relief and a better quality of life now or a longer pain-filled life?" It's a hard decision.
I was diagnosed with lupus about a year ago and starting about a month ago I would get these chest pains but they'd only last about 15min then 3 days ago I got this horid chest pains and this time it hasn't gone away, I went to the ER <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they did a bunch of tests on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> checked for a pulmerary embilism and they came back negative. I believe I do have pleurisy other then the fact he my pain is in the middle of my chest rather then on one side.
and those are just the ones I can remember off the top of my head. I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> (7.5 mg) that I take for the pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I was taking Zonisamide (100 mg) twice daily but that is not helping me either. I am missing entire days/weeks due to this constant pain and am basically at my wits end. I have a neurologist that I have been seeing, but she seems more intent on passing me pills when I really want to try and find out what is causing this. I normally get about 2 migraines a week.
I had to stop taking that because I started having tingling feelings in my hands, feet, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> chin while on it. He also gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span>, but I had the same reaction to that. I was also on Claritan during all this. My problem is I seem to be tired all the time. I sleep well but I don't feel anything like I did before that day. I finally stopped taking all meds and I seem to be feeling a little better. I have a lot of pain in my ribs, upper back, and around my chest plate.
Well - I had a bad morning so far today and can not wrap my head around what is wrong with this body of mine since my "normal" blood is always normal. Today I am getting numbness / tingles in the outer fingers (ring & pinky) in both hands that travels up the outer / side arm (and under) and on my left arm, stops at the elbow. On my right, it goes to the shoulder. It feels like something crawling at times, I don't understand it.
In case anyone on Vioxx has not heard, it's been pulled off the market worldwide (Thursday) because it has been found to double the chance of strokes or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack AFTER 18 MONTHS OF USE. If you have taken it for shorter time, don't freak out! I'm on day 2 of my new med, meloxicam 7.5 mg ("Mobic" from Boehringer-Ingelheim), and so far it seems more potent than the Alleve. Is this the placebo effect? It's an NSAID with something added to prevent the GI problem.
I'm a single mom and I keep thinking what if I'm about to have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack? I'm very overweight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> am desperate to lose, but like another message-poster, I'm afraid if I start exercising, I might drop dead! Does anyone know what exactly causes these? Can they be associated with anxiety and/or depression? If it's "normal", why doesn't everyone have them? Thanks everyone for listening.
I suggest you to try some light NON STEROID ANTI-INFLAMATORY medication like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> protect your stomach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> esophagus by drinking yougurth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a treatment of OMEPRAZOL 20mg for 2 weeks. If you feel better after this, then means that I was right and then everything has to do with that discomfort you're feeling. Blessings. Metacomet Note: Check with your doctor optionally about this, I'm only suggesting based in my own experience. But maybe could work for you.
Hi Friends, Welcome! Please make yourself at home ... snuggle down by the fire <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> hang on. It's a bumpy ride.
I've added <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Topamax to the list, but I've cut back on taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> just learned to live with the joint aches/pains. My spleen and liver are both swollen now, according to my GP, and I read somewhere online that this can cause the sinuses to become maybe this is what happened with mine. I also discovered from my CT scan that I have atelectasis in my left lung (the swelling in my neck is on the right side, go figure), which is a little disturbing...

This is the place to be if you are trying to recover from Tramadol ... Please make yourself at home!
I experienced pain from my left and right side of my chest that traveled from time to time to my neck, back, and abdomen. At one time I thought I was having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack up until I burped <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> passed gas <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it relieve the pain. Another time I had a lot of pressure into my face and I felt some wind escape through my left ear. I took OTC Prilosec and it helped.

You don't have to live that way. there's lots of people here to help.
CoBob- So if I had 2 separate attacks (age 26, age 50) that I never had an MRI for, but had clinical symptoms of, does this qualify for DIT? It wasn't until this 3rd attack at 52 that they did an MRI <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> found the lesions I described. I have a bunch of classic subjective symptoms for several years and they are increasing.
You know I fully understand the risks of Celebrex...but what doesn't carry a risk? Sometimes a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack is preferable over the pain don't you think?....although strokes are a different matter unless fatal. Prior to oxycontin I had been on Celebrex for years my BP went up over time so you add another med..If able to keep the dose low at 100mg OAD than for those than can tolerate don't you think this is still a good option? Let us know if you can find a safer option for inflammation ok.
I am allergic to Penicillin; I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack at age 39; I take an aspirin everyday, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I feel this may be part of my problem, (as it says on each bottle, to stop useage if facial swelling appears). But, I sometimes wonder if the multiple mosquito poison bites remains within the cells of your body for extended periods of time? Just a guess...
Sorry I don't have the answers for you - but I figured that our bodies are pretty good <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if we're about to have an anurysm / thrombosis / <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack or something sinister happen to us - there will be sufficient signs and symptoms and thank goodness for this - imagine if this didn't happen, the Neurologists wouldn't have a clue. So I just continue to live on anti-inflammatories (aspirin and celebrex) and hope that one day the pain will go away. Take care.
I know of another man whose first attack was severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he thought he might be having a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>heart</span> attack, but apparently not. the pain went from his knee to his chest. He is fine now.
