Hi I am a 34m that was admitted to hospital after a incident of chest pain, nausea, vomiting and sweating.
I was told I had a a NSTEMI which after a CT, echo, MRI and angio was confirmed to be a result of prinzmental angina.
I was prescribed clopdigprel 75mg in the morning, diltizem 90mg one in the morning and one in the evening and was given a GTN spray...
It's been 4 weeks and a still in a bit of shock I think (am yet to have my follow up with the doctor to actually talk me through what happened/is going on!) but my questions are to others really regarding recovery etc - I'm not able to talk more than a few minutes, now 4 weeks after the event and I don't know if it's as a result of the medication (am I not reacting to it well?!) or whether I'm just not recovering for some reason
I have pretty regular dull burning sensation in my chest that is worse when lying down and after big meals - so I was prescribed randintine.
I guess I could actually use my GTN spray on a daily basis if I didn't think/they didn't think the burning sensation was due to GERD caused by clopiogrel.
Anyone stopped taking their clopiogrel and opted for asprin instead?! I'm really worried that after 4 weeks I actually worse than when I was still in hospital (7 days in total) and I don't seem to be getting better
Any advice appreciated
From a worried soul. Nima
