June 25, 2010,I accidentally injured my left chest which made me light headed, weak, chilled, on & on. The next week, re injured, same things happened except more severe. Thought was having heart attack; call 911, go to hospital. Kept me overnight, sent me home.This kept getting worse. I have to go to a cardiac hospital a few days later. They did an angiogram , with no major blockage, sent me home as I pleaded for them to, please find the source. Appx a week later, we drove to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN to the cardiology clinic with my telling them I ve come to stay until the source of this problem is found. They tried to do another angiogram to do a small vessel, heart spasm study. My system was to weakened to do the tests. They stopped the procedure & admitted me to hospital to get BP down, etc. They sent me home without searching for the source. Not once did anyone touch my chest to see if I had tenderness or soreness. All throughout the summer, i went to a local doctor at least once a week as I was getting much worse rather than better. He wanted to give me drugs for depression & anti psycho meds in which I refused as I was NOT depressed, overly anxious, just needing to find the source of my problem was all I asked from every doctor. The local doctor never once touched the site of my injury in five months of being in his office at least once a week pleading for help to find the source. Second week of Nov, we were scheduled to go for our annual physical at Mayo Clinic in MN. I have a new doctor ay Mayo as physician for 30 yrs had to retire due to health reasons, recently. After a few tests, blood work, etc, my new doctor was rather rude as she got up into my face & told me that she didn t think I have an injury, & didn t have an accidental injury, that if she had to diagnose me that day, she d diagnose me with severe depression & anxiety . I told her that I am not depressed nor overly anxious because God is my Great Physician, He will heal in His time! She coaxed me into going to a psychyatrist (however this word might be spelled). I went kicking & screaming as I knew that was not where I needed to go. However, this man was one of the nicest doctors of my entire clinic visits telling me that no way was I depressed & did not have clinical anxiety, no way would he ever recommend any of medicine for me. He told me his diagnose for my problem was that I don t know your problem, but I know you have one & hope for someone to find the source. Back to my new doctor, I told her .
