I am new to this, and am sure I likely got the wrong section. But I am in a sort of panic tonight and was hoping I could maybe get help from ya'll on a issue I've been dealing with for a few years now.
I have searched other posts to "find my answer". I have come up with none that fit my situation exact. If you'll read further I will explain.
I was looking on this site to find out about Chest pain on the left side, A real sharp pain that takes my breath away and goes away a few mins later. This pain however is NOT constant. When I have it, I am not stressed. I have gone into the doctors countless times where they have checked my heart, stress test, so on and so forth and found nothing. This pain only lasts a couple minutes, But it will be gone for 4-5 months and come back with a vengeance. After the actual "Stabbing" occurs, I'll feel a tint of pain for about 20 mins after.. Then it’s over. I am not lucky enough to be in the E.R. while this happens.
To give a little information of my past.. I gave birth to my first child and was suffering from a little depression, They automatically said I was BiPolar and put me on the first drug... Geodon, The second Drug was Levaquin and the third drug was Lithium.
With Geodon, I was taking it for a couple weeks and I couldn't even wake up to feed my newborn baby, (He had overdosed me later I found out, by 60mg) Then my doctor gave me levaquin, With that drug I was having tiny seizures, but I was conscious, I had a variety of problems of which I held from my husband, I thought he'd get mad at me (in no way is he abusive, that was just my mind set at the time)(This doctor had me move up every day in dosage), My doctor them prescribed me Lithium... I did this for a total of two days and felt drugged up and I hated it, So I never went back. Again he had overdosed me.
Ever since, I have real sharp pains towards the top of my breast, it will be so sharp, then go away within a minute, I have to take real shallow breaths until the pain subsides. I am not upset, I am not reaching for anything, I don’t understand. But this has been since I took those meds or during that timeframe. I was not bipolar, I was just a little depressed and if I was left alone, I would have been over it within a month or less.
I have two young children, One four years old, and one seven months old, I am so scared that something might be wrong, To give you a little background as well, I smoke some and I have the occasional drink, Not often, Just a social thing, Not to drunk, Just to have a good sip of wine.
For some reason I couldn't find "my" condition anywhere in these pages... I have looked now for a few hours. I apologize if I’ve missed something, or a thread somewhere, But I have a family and I’m young, I’m 23 years old and I want to be here. If you could help me a little bit, A bit more than my doctors, I would appreciate something. I don’t know, what is a anxiety thing? That seemed to be the basis of what I read. I have a very very happy life, I've been so blessed and I’m truly so happy to be where I am, I love my family more than life and I love my life period, So what’s wrong with me?
Thank Ya'll very much,
