here is a snapshot of my problems:
- upper chest pains located mainly along the ribs that come and go and vary in intensity
- pain radiates to the back, along sternum, underarm
- also i have had several episodes of sinus tachycardia
Tests I have had:
- blood work, x-rays, ecg's (showing normal sinus rhythm, but elevated heart rate)), 24 h Holter, echocardiogram.
All tests came back normal.
Some doctors say it's panic related, some don't have any answer for me, one mentioned costochondritis and that I should take ibuprofen, or wait for it to go away.
I'm currently taking ativan once a day 0.5 mg and bisoprolol once a day 2.5 mg.
The tachycardia comes and goes randomly, but the chest pains are here everyday.
I do have a scheduled appt with a cardiologist but I have to wait till Feb 2012!!!! for that
Any advice, insight, help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
