Question: Hello, my mother was diagnosed with osteoarthritis. She is being treated for osteoarthritis for last 8 months or so. But here situation got worse and she was hospitalized. There it was diagnosed that she is also suffering from Pneumonia. Now she has been prescribed a 7 day course of rocephin iv, MOFEST (Moxifloxacin HCl), some other medications for stomach and few pain killers. Doctor has said he cannot start osteoarthritis treatment before Pneumonia is controlled.

Its second day of her treatment (rocephin iv) and she has complained chest pain for last two days (pain in ribs), until now she has no cough , so no broken rib (she was sent home from hospital 3 days ago and she is taking medication at home).

My question, is chest pain because of Pneumonia or side reaction rocephin iv? Should we take her to hospital again, any advice?

Thanks very much! XXXXXXX

Hello,
Thanks for the query.
There can be various causes for the pain chest in your mother.
Injection ROCEPHIN and pneumonia,both can cause pain in chest.
Along with these there could be other reasons for chest pain including a cardiovascular or muscular problem.
It would be best on your part to take her to the hospital again so that exact cause can be identified and treated.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
