I'm a 42 yr old male.
I had a HA December 2012 requiring 2 stents.
Prescribed asprin, bisosoprol, simvastatin and ramipril that I've taken ever since.
Since August 2012 I started to have strange episodes where I would suddenly feel very weak and faint, sweat profusely, feel like I was in shock and just struck hard over the head and paralyzed down the left side face, arm and legs) and very nauseous.
I was taken to A&E treated for a TDS or mini stroke with CT, MRI scans coming back clear and a lumbar puncture also coming back clear
This has happened three times now since August 2012 with DRs suggesting these symptoms were unstable agina or anxiety or a sudden drop in blood pressure.
I've not been officially diagnosed with anything yet.
It got to the point where my quality of life has suffered dramatically.
I get breathless quite easily and don't sleep very well at all.
My wife isn't that sympathetic and tells me to grow up but to be honest I'm feeling totally crap most of the time.
I can't have sex with her for anymore than 2 minutes as I get very breathless and start coughing which just annoys her and puts a dampner on proceedings!
I work full time as a forklift truck driver and when lifting anything to any great height as a look up my head feels like its about to explode and I feel very sick.
Over the last week I've developed a terrible cough and a horrible rattling sound from my chest or throat when i exhale and thus is making even more uncomfortable.
Any advise is much apprichiated as this is really getting me down.
