Landed up in hospital yesterday 6a.m. with ?heart attack. As usual had had only just over an hour asleep. Almost simultaneously on waking had felt heavy weight on chest and enormous pain and heaviness in left arm. Put it down to panic attack, but by 3 took diazepam - nothing. 4 - took co-codamol - nothing. At 5 rang Samaritans who told to call 111 and I was in the ambulance and arriving at A&E before I knew it. Arm pain responded eventually to gtn, have had quite a lot of pain relief. But here's the thing. I wasn't given my amlodipine yesterday and my RLS symptoms seem almost not there. Could there be a link or is it the regular pain meds, which never touch it under normal circumstances? Have to see a cardiologist in morning before I can be discharged. Should I try to raise the subject? He will be concentrating on my symptoms on admission, but I won't ever get the chance to see a cardiologist again I shouldn't think, and my GP has washed her hands of me, so no chance of unbiased advice from her. Your thoughts would be welcome. Incidentally I still cannot sleep even with zopiclone and pain meds. Stomach doing flips, heart beating in throat; nothing untoward showing on the monitor I'm attached to, so definitely psychological anxiety. Am going to try and sleep again and hope some of you may have noticed this post and responded when I check in next.
PS took 3 pramipexole as agreed last week, all the pain meds seem to have saved me from crawling the walls tonight. Shan't be getting the luxury of that again 😳
