i'd go with the heart doc. maybe you can meet in the middle with a plan. can you get the buggers to come to some amicable agreement that is patient specific!!! i only say the cardiologist as the heart is keepin' ya ticking. as per the meds? what are you comfortable with? i do not know about naproxen. i have arthritis in my neck. and now some neuralgia. my best advice is to grab ya pharmacist and say, hey mate, what's up with this. cardiologists prescribe there stuff, gp's theres, the only bugger who knows what ya taking is you and your pharmacist. pharmacists know the chemical compounds and are able to determine interactions with other medications. i would discuss your meds, and in particular the ones in question. my healing thoughts to you. i am sorry for what has happened to you in vietnam. it's a bugger as you have serious heart and osteo-arthritic problems. i hop[e others come on. maybe some peeps on the chronic pain forum may have insight. i have coronary atery disease, recent x2 by-pass. have arthritis riddled in my neck. si i get you a little. neuralgia as well. pain is pain, head, neck hips heart, it is just that. tell these qwacks to get there **** together as i am not coping. your in my healing thoughts. keep posting. we care.
