Three weeks ago, I had a horrible migraine. (I am a female in my mid-40’s)
I tried Excedrin while at work. Had one errand before going home. Took Rx meds and laid down for a nap. When I woke, headache was gone. No shortness of breath, just felt like the start of a bronchial bug (I’ve had migraines for 35 years and Asthma for 30 years).
When I woke up, I felt like I had the start of a bronchial bug. I went to an after-hours medical clinic. Gal taking my vitals said my heart rate was weak. Went out and returned with an EKG cart. I had “inverted T waves”. Where my EKG should have a peak, I have a valley. 🙁
So, they sent me to the ER, concerned that I was having a heart attack. After three hours of tests, monitors and x-rays, was told my results looked good, but would I stay for observation.
I declined to stay. I need to see a Cardiologist. Appointment tomorrow. I have done a little research, but of course, I don’t know…what I don’t yet know. It seems that there is a relationship between Excedrin products and Inverted T waves. There is also a relationship with another Rx blood pressure medication (to keep headaches at bay), that have a relationship with Inverted T waves.
I can’t be the first patient who has dealt with this.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
