Unhappy New and Need Help

I've been experiencing a heaviness in my chest and now tingling/numbness in my right foot/lower leg. I am currently taking .5m Klonopin 3x day and 25m Zoloft 1x day. I've been on the Zoloft for about 3 weeks and have felt no improvements. Have already had an EKG/Xrays/Blood work. All came back normal. My doctor says this is anxiety. Please help...

Re: New and Need Help

You may need to see a cardiologist. Someone that specializes in the cardiovascular system. You may need an echocardiagram or stress test to rule out possible heart problem. You do not say what is going on in your life. Are you under a great deal of stress? Are you overweight? Diabetic? etc. Keep in touch. Sincerely, searchin

Re: New and Need Help

I'm 5'5, 135 pounds, no diabetes. Why a cardiologist? I don't have a lot of money.

Re: New and Need Help

I know what you mean about the money situation. Well, a cardiologist might not be so quick to say, "it's just stress". Just want to make sure all the bases are covered. Sincerely, searchin
