  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • I have an non-typical pulmonary stenosis, MPA aneurysm directly above that valve. The left ventricle was also enlarged due to the stress of my third & final pregnancy put on my heart.

    On March 1st (this year) I went to the ER as none of my asthma treatment weren't working. After several tests a pulmonary embolism was found in my bronchial trunk. It was successfully dissolved with heparin in 48 hours. The PE put more stress on the left ventricle. As a result I was sent home to be on bed rest as I only had trouble breathing while mobile, under stress or attempting to carry on a conversation. At rest, my heart rate & oxygen meter would go back to normal.

    That is no longer the case. When I went in to my Asthma & allergy doctor's office to do my PFT, it was worse than it has ever been, including before I quit smoking 5yrs. ago. This started at the same time I began taking Coumadin & became worse as I reached therapeutic INR levels.

  • From this study (7 months ago):

  • Never a clot but newly prescribed medicine Pristiq and I have Factor V, Type 1 Diabetes, high cholesterol and use a fentanyl patch and these were all warnings on Pristiq. I take wellbutrin 300 and Zoloft and Prozac didn't work.

    I see an endocrinologist, neurologist, family practice, pain management. My depression is because of pain. I've only been to one pain doctor and I must have a tolerance to opiates. I've tried oxycodone 15mg x many, dilaudid 8 mg x many, morphine 30 x many, Opana Er x many. Not all at once and always take prescribed amount but it never works. Been prescribed the same garbage for 6 years and have had pain epidurals and radio frequency ablations. Was pretty exited about laser surgery and then I was told they don't take my insurance when I have a BCBS PPO

    I'm afraid doctors like me psychiatrist don't look atoll my medical history before prescribing things like Pristiq.
