I was on IV steroids for 2 days. I was supposed to go for 3 but because I felt like I couldn t breathe, they left me with just 2. My chest was extremely heavy/tight. But they didn t seem to care or check me out. Then I am currently on Prednisone, which are steroid tablets so I can taper off the steroids. But I still feel like I can t breathe AND NOW I have been having this cold feeling in my chest the past few days. It is really cold.... and radiates to my back. Isn t this a sign of a heart attack? What should I do?
You should have expressed your concern about a heart attack while in the hospital, and if they denied to check said symptoms you WOULD HAVE had a malpractice suit against them. Seeing you are still worried, you should see a doctor immediately.
