Sunday night I suddenly had toothache which became jaw ache, then a headache, neck ache, shoulder pain, arm ache and chest pain.
Not that I'd had it before but I thought it might be an infected tooth - so I managed to get to see a dentist who couldn't really see anything but gave me anti-biotics and told me to come back to see my normal dentist because I may need a root canal (oh joy).
But he wasn't happy I had all this other stuff about arm ache and chest pain so told me to go see my GP.
I managed to see her and she wasn't happy either. So I went to hospital. I'd just started the anti-biotics so things started to get a bit surreal.
I ended up with a diagnosis of angina - something I'm still really not convinced about. I picked up the new meds today and noticed two of them (nitroglycerine and another nitrate) will conflict with my blood pressure meds and quietapine. This is after the doctor had gone through all my meds. wtf? Also I got a statin despite a blood test last week that showed my cholesterol was fine.
I'm supposed to get a "heart scan" in a month or two but I'm thinking in the meantime they only med I'll take is the asprin.
So I have no idea what is going on (the antibiotic doesn't help clear thinking) other than I seem to have the prospect of various invasive procedures.
I would have asked on the angina board but that hasn't had a post for six months or so...

I am going to see my gp on Friday for my yearly physical and I want to get her help to quit smoking. I see on tv ads for medications that can help you quit but a lot of them list depression and suicidal thoughts as a side effect and that is the...
