Heart Conditions and FMS

Postby andypandy08 » Tue Dec 09, 2008 2:09 am

I have a problem with my heart (ischemic heart disease)
and my doctor is not keen on anti inflamatry drugs as this will for sure relax the muscles around the heart
I am on 2 different painkillers co codradromol and gabapentin which is an anti convulsant drug however supposed to be good for pain releif, also I take setralin for depression is there anyone in a similar position these 2 painkillers provide about 1 hours relief !!

not able to get proper medication due to other ailments?

Anti-inflammatories don't work properly for Fibro so I'm not sure why they would be an issue?

Mytral Valve Prolapse they say i have had since a baby - however as a young married girl i had 13 operations for lost babies and they never found anything then.
I think it came with the illness as i was desperately ill at first.

I do understand more about FMS now and understand what your saying

however even with painkillers they are edgy , because they dont like

prescribing pks that might interact with my other tablets ...about 10

different ones at present, hope youre both feeling better today again

thanks for your kind replies .... Andy

I get Mobic as an anti-inflam and have taken it for years - two a day and they really help take the pain away for me - without them i am like a rusty robot.
