I am 32 years old and I have had several episodes of chest pain that feel like someone crushing my chest. I have had pain on left of body from the neck down to my leg. I have had numbness of the mouth. Just recently I have had a bad episode of vertigo. It seems like every month I exprienced somthing new. I am so fustrated because I have no insurance dut to a layoff of a job I had for 8 years. Im scared Im going to one day have a heart attack and I have a 4 year old at home! In November 2006 I had very bad chest pain and went to the hospital I was there for 5 days. My heart rate was 100-150 bpm so they gave me Nitrate and that help bring down to 90's the dr. did not know what was going on due to my ekg was
fine. I took a stress test and that was positive but they couldnt see anything on the echo so they let me go home. Then in January this year I
passed out at a bus terminal and was rushed to a diffrent hospital. My Heart rate was very high then dipped too low. I took a ekg it was normal with slight arythmia problems. I was given a lot of medication I was in the hospital for 5 days again I took a stress test this time it came back negative due to nothing on echo cardio gram; but I did have trouble climbing down from a heart rate of 160 bpm it took me almost an hr just to get in the high 80's. Then I took a tilt table test and that came back positive I was given 2 nitro just so I can climb down from 180 bpm. The cardioalogist with a closer look at my ekg at that time and saw small indication of problems no one notice My heart paused beating for a shot period and changed a completely different rythim he diagnosed me with coronary spasms and I was put on a 30day lupe monitor but nothing came of it due to no insurance all I have is nitro RX. Now Im getting severe vertigo. I went to the doctor and they did no blood work with my history or MRI. At this point I do not know what to do I tried to get medicaid but was denied. I know I am in trouble what can I do?
