I apologise if this is long, but I'm not quite sure where to start or when this started, but for the past month or so I've been getting this strange discomfort/pain in my chest. At first I thought nothing of it, because the discomfort just felt like that of what you'd get with an acid reflux situation..but it's just been getting worse and doesn't depend on when/what I'm eating/drinking.
I've been to my GP more times than I can count, for some reason they think it's linked to either anxiety(which i don't have) or my chronic tension-type headaches. I've been started on 10mg Amitriptyline for a month for the headaches, the GP thinks this will also help with the chest pain(?).
It's been nearly a week on this medication now and my chest just seems to be getting worse, I mean to the point where I can't sleep all I can do is just sit up and cry in pain.
It's sort of like a tightness/dull ache in my chest, and sometimes in my back, before and after the pain starts. When it's bad there's like a sharp stabbing pain down my sternum area and sometimes towards the lower left side of my ribs.
I don't know if this is of any relevance either but i stood up the other day from sitting on the floor and my vision went black, I sat down but felt like I was going to pass out if I didn't. I have no idea if anyone could help?
