Hi everyone. I find this site great for information.
Can anyone please tell me if they get the following symptoms with the GTN nitro spray for under the tongue. I get dizzy, feel i am going to faint, heart starts to beat fast and i get flushed also head ache. Doctor said it may make me faint if so do not use.
Having CT scan on monday to check heart. Having to pay private as doctor will not send me for one. I should be able to have it free on NHS in Britain but doctor refuses. I have been telling him i have Small vessel disease but he thinks not, blames everything on stress. I feel doctors use this word to freely. This has been going on since march. I get breathless pain in chest neck throat. Sleep disturbance waking up choking annormal for women but do not think it is heart. heart racing, after going slow and oxygen going low. I have finger oximiter i bought for proof. Went to hospital they say funny ECGs which is normal for women but i have symptoms. They kept me overnight but said heart rate stayed at 55. I know this is not true as patient in next bed said it dropped when i was asleep to 42. I forgot to tell them GTN helped. They sent me home breathless, i am frightened when i cannot breath and chest pain heart goes slow down to 42 sometimes 38 that heart is being deprived of oxygen and will cause heart attack. I have read that this also shortens life. I know stress is not helping, but try to get doctors to listen and when they dont you get stressed also when you cannot breath.
Has anyone had this problem. Had Echo said it was normal.
