Brief Answer:
Vertigo is most likely condition, ER evaluation still necessary.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Attack of vertigo ( benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, Ménière's) is most likely condition to consider in your wife's case, however ER evaluation about conditions such increased Intracranial pressure, brain mases, stroke, etc. is necessary even to exclude them.

Brain imaging studies take an important role in this situation.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Take care.

I had been taking Diovan for a number of years and insurance company suggested I replace Diovan with the Losartan since it was cheaper. I took 50 mg. of the Losartan yesterday morning. Noticed a tight feeling in chest yesterday afternoon. At the time I went to bed (around 12:30 a.m.) I experienced severe pain in left side of chest, radiating through back and left shoulder. Took two nitro pills and dropped off to sleep. Upon arising this a.m. I again experienced pain in the same area, got a little scared and got very hot. Tried to stay calm, ate some breakfast and felt some better. Also, severe hurting in upper right arm where large muscles join together. I had a heart attack latter part of 2005 and diagnosed several years ago with fibromyalgia. I am 77 years old, active for my age, caring for 88-year-old husband who suffered a stroke six months ago. I hesitate to go to ER this a.m. due to home situation and long wait getting medical attention.
