Hi,
I have a stent put into my heart three weeks ago. Yesterday I got a soreness in my chest and later a pain in between my shoulder blades. Did anyone else ever get this? This pain resulted in a panic attack! Anyone else had this problem? I am taking Plavix, Lipitor and Aspirin. Thanks!

It is something you should probably ask your doctor about. I have had three stents and havent had any soreness in my chest from them. But when they had me on lipitor I had a lot of muscle pain in my back and between my shoulder blades. How long have you been on the lipitor? When I first started plavix it caused some back pain also, but it got better after a couple of weeks. your body may just need to adjust to the meds.

I've been on Lipitor for about a month. I think I may have been doing a bit too much work too soon and that may have caused the chest pain. Thanks a mil for your reply.
