Common Questions and Answers about Zetia and heartburn

zetia

I take Omeprazole for acid reflux/hiatal hernia, and I take Synthroid for hypothyroidism. I also take Zetia every other day for cholesterol. All of these are working well, but I hope they are not the cause of my Gastroparesis. I don't want to take anymore medications, especially the ones that are given for Gastroparesis. Since I don't have the usual symptoms, do I really need medication for it?
I have been on synthroid as well as levothyroxine since I was 14 years old. Back and forth with those 2 meds. as well as up and done in dosages can not find a happy place it seems to fluctuate alot. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I for once would like to have some energy. Work fulltime and have to young children. What a challenge that is! tsh seems to be normal however I wonder sometimes if i am over medicated! gaining weight not losing?
I have sinus tachycardia no big deal, just it's 115-120 bpm when it regularly should be 60-100 bpm. I am only 22 years old, and have times of social anxiety where my heart rate goes up, and my face gets hot. so my doctor prescribed a low dose of 60 mg SA inderal. it's supposed to be teh extended release version or something. but i looked it up and supposedly the lowest therapeutic dose for inderal extended release is 80, so I may hafta adjust.
I was told I had no blockages just that my right coronary artery is very small and gets narrower the further down it goes. I don't know what that means and unfortunately I was very drowsy when the dr came in to tell me this as the sedated me for the cath. All I know is my Verapamil was increased to 240 mg and my Crestor was increased to 40 mg. Is this a normal finding or a potential problem?
I take 50mg of atenolol daily (as well as asprin, plavix, lipitor 80, zetia lorezepam and enalapril)and I have read that this beta blocker can weaken the LES. I have had 2 negative thallium stress tests in the past 8 weeks and I am relatively certain the pain is not cardiac related. I realize that you cannot diagnose me in this forum. My gastroenterologist is booked solid for the next two weeks, and I would appreciate any insight you might have about my symptoms.

( herniated disks, I take Methadone ) The two ekgs I know of showed ST-T wave changes more pronounced, not sure what that means. NO EKGS have been taken during attacks. I will give more infor later. Thanks and I appreicate the help. MOre questions, please ask.
"would a blockage of 70% show on regular stress test?" Great question, but I'm afraid the answer is just 'possibly'. This heart disease stuff really isn't cut and dry is it lol. Some people fly through stress tests with 70% blockages because the arteries are different in different patients. Some have pretty big arteries, some have quite small ones. Those with the larger arteries have been known to have no issues until 90%. There is also another problem.
I also have that annoying warm sensation that is in my right leg and it moves from my ankle and up about 4inches and seems to be very frequent. I too thought it was a little heater under the seat of my car that was warming my leg-but the heat was not on. Also, the balls of my feet are burning along with this sensation. I need to know what this is?
