Well, this thread has been dead for awhile but I had to post this.
6 day pred for tendonitis in hand, gave me swirly soreness all over chest and back, thought it was indigestion. Was so intense wife and I thought I was going to have a heart attack. I'm 39, by the way.
3 days after scrip ended, sharp pins in upper left chest at 3am. Only a second long, maybe every 10 minutes. I waited it out. After a day, was still there, plus a flushed sort of feeling on that side. Off to the ER. Vitals, EKG, x-ray, all was fine. Went home.
Two days later, just watching tv, now a tiny pressure on the chest, mild sensation in jaw, tingling in left bicep. Back to the ER. 3 days there, stress echo, regular echo, CT, tons of blood drawn. I'm fine. Everything's good with the heart. Thyroid a lot lower than should be, but everything else fine. Go home. Told the usual about changing diet, lose about 40 lbs, thyroid meds.
Here I sit, those little pulses to my heart area still going on, every few hours for a couple minutes. So even if this post isn't seen for a couple of years, hopefully someone I know will update if I'm expired or not.
Oh, and my hand still hurts.
