Have been on Xeloda 5days. 2000mg bid and past few days intermittent chest and arm pain. I had check up at hospital, including a stress test which was all normal. Pain fells like muscle tightness and comes on after exertion.
From this study (1 week ago):
i'm pretty much the most comlex case 4 psychiatrists, 3 psychologists, a nuero scientist/adult mood disorder specialised doctor, 3 gp's, 2 naturopaths and an adhd specialist have ever come accross. i'm basically a pharmacy on legs with over 32types of medications tried in 13 months including those i've mentioned above. i admitted myself into hospital (to get a team around me) for 3 weeks in the psych ward in july 2013 but was granted an agreed by patient/all the different types of doctors and nursing staff to b words) and 'what planet am i from (using a nurses exact words) because i'm soe released early as they had 'no lollies left to try' (using the head psych's exact words referring to prescription medications) anr how so rediculously med-resistant to all that could be tried. the night nurses were actually scare d of me, not by any violence or anything at all alike, but by my uncanny ability to be dosed so very very highly on so many potent medications and extreme combinations to no avail. i've had 9ver 25 blood tests, ultrasounds, brain imagery mri's, sleep disorders studies in hospital and numerous other forms of clinical testing to still be on the rollercoaster and the viscous cycle 13months later and i'm still in the same boat! it's been said way more than just a few times that i'm one hell of a case for the record books!
From this study (3 weeks ago):
