Discussions that mention lanoxin

:)hi. last 2005, i was feeling really off... i was palpitating even at rest, always tired, i don't feel rested after 8hrs of sleep, i was very weak then, i always skipped school because i always feel weak, like fainting...
so, along with my mother we went to see a GP, she told me i'm just stressed out because of school, and prescribed me vitamins and advised me to manage my time, that's it... it didn't do me good... so i kept visiting physicians, as if doctor shopping, but i am really feeling something, they could not explain! i went to an EENT doc, then finally i spotted a cardiologist... this first cardiologist put me under isoptin and lanoxin, but still i feel the symptoms, so i visited her frequently complaining of my problem, but she told me that it's all in my head, and that she will refer me to a psychiatrist/psychologist to help me... i was pissed off! the fact that she wasnt able to make any diagnosis, and only ordered for an ecg!!! so, i went out and look for another cardiologist, who ordered for a 2d echo, then the diagnosis was made, mvp! then he gave me inderal for my symptoms and gave me an advise to stop worrying, because it won't kill u.. exact words of the dr.!
though i already know my case, i still don't feel ok, the meds are not helping my symptons to go away...
then again, i looked for another cardiologist, who placed me under isoket and isoptin... but i stopped taking my meds.. because i fear it will do me harm than good.. honestly, no med ever worked good on me.. symptoms remain, and its making me hopeless...
once in a while i visit my cardio, for some test of electrolytes, because i'm having some slight imbalances...
i'm 24 now, i stopped taking my meds, i'm really hard-headed!:(
once in a while, i feel the symptoms, but i just ignore it... but i'm still afraid of what awaits me..
am just overwhelmed to see/know that i'm not the only one suffering/feeling these symptoms...:cool:
i hope one day, i'll finally get over this...:(

p.s.: i just want to ask, how does mvp affect pregnancy? thanx
