Customer Question
I had a cortisone...

I had a cortisone shot with numbing agent today in a knee inflamed by a scope. 3.weeks ago. Then the PA gave me vimov to keep me from taking so many Motrin for pain. I took 1 Vimov at 1pm. At 3pm I began to notice my heart racing. At 4pm I was short of breath. Both continue now a 9pm. Both arms are starting to ache. I took two klonopin .5 about an hour ago to try and calm me down (those are prescribed to me for anxiety) Should I go to the ER or continue to lay on my bed to see if my heart stops racing and breath returns to normal. I am a 52YO white woman with no known allergies to medicine. Is this possibly an allergic reaction to the Vimov? Thank you.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

It's actually Vimovo, with 2 o's

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have only been dealing with this since 3pm today when the first symptoms of racing heart & pulse appeared, shortness of breath at 4pm. I still am experiencing both at 9:06pm

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
