Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
In the last two months these have just showed up and I have done a stress test Eco cardio hauler monitor EKG all of those came back as good but there is something causing my heart burn and with in the last 4 days my stomach has had a lot of pressure and felt acidy for no reason not eating anything but I bloat after eating?
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Feels like electrical shocks and muscle spasms in heart possible. At times so strong I stop everything because of it and if I get my heart rate up or get stressed/mad/excitedthen it is worse.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Elavil, 25mg @ night stopped an 11 month chronic headache after a head injury, I sustained 1 1/2 years ago.
Additionally, Neurologist prescribed 100 mg Lyrica for chronic back/nerve pain from moderate/severe spinal injuries, sustained 20+ years earlier. (Crushed/cracked verabrae and 3 intervertebral disc bulges)
I had been using Ibuprofen daily in moderate to heavy dosage for the last 20+ years. (800+ mg daily B/4 and then continually after recent head injury)
I was advised to stop/reduce use of Motrin to 1/2 month or less. It is still the best pain relief but have reduced to PRN, perhaps 200 mg alternate days.
Since treatment with Lyrica I've noticed reduced nerve pain and stopped using Elavil for sake of not feeling so "wrecked" in the mornings. I have also developed a severe sleep apnoea, treated unsuccessfully via CPAP device which is unbearable to use. I have subsequently suffered with depression/mood disorder for 20+ years and am currently un-treated for this long-standing vulnerability which came back with a vengence after the head-injury. I feel irregularity to my heart beat by the end of the day. I feel suicidal and violently angry.
