Customer Question
I have a fib...

I have a fib. Today I had an epidural in my back. I experience a severe headache when waking up. the headache is gone but I am having heart palpitation and a tighting in my chest when lying down. Is this normal or should I be concerned

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

I had the headache after I had the procedure and they came me some medication in my IV. The headache went away,

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
