12 months ago after having an Angioplasty op. where I had three stents fitted, one week later I was woken up with pains just under my ribs in the centre of my chest. this has carried on during the year varying from daily up to two months between these events.
The pain level is about 6/10 and allways occured 8 hours after evening meals and dissipated after four hours.
I had around 7 tablets for around 6 to 8 months and then this was cut down to 3 tablets, I believe that the tablets are causing this problem and they are Dispersible Aspirin 75mg, Simvastatin 40mg (which I had changed to try to stop the problem) and Omeprazole 20mg.
During a conversation with a cardiac freind, he told me that his wife and sister had similar problems as me and changed the Omeprazole for a similar tablet as the capsule casing was causing the problem not the drug inside, they changed from a blue/orange capsule to a yellow one, sounds silly but could be correct.
Does anyone out there know any better? I would be very greatfully if you could respond. I am really fed up that I have to suffer for nothing.
