i was in emergency last week, I had horrific chest pain. I truely thought, it was a heart attack. The pain was like a red hot dagger just below the sternum, and a little to the right. They did the bloodwork, and an EKG and everything was "normal". The dooc sent me home with an excellent muscle relaxer, and a prescript
ion for some kind of NSAID (supposedly for pain). I personally cannot take NSAIDS due to irritable bowel and stomach problems. It wasn't new to me, this pain, but never at this level Pain level 8-9. I think they gave me a shot of morphine in the butt, wjich knocked the pain out (along with me) for the night. I completed the course of muscle relaxer, 2 per day for five days. I feel better in that area but am still coming to terms with the pain of Fibro being ever present. It kinda puts a damper on "fun". I have to lay down everyday ay 4 PM, and usually get up to make dinner and washing up. Yjen back to bed. Anything I have to do, I have to do in the morning. Wish you luck.
