Amitiza Muscle Spasms Causes and Reviews


Angina is chest pain or discomfort you feel when there is not enough blood flow to your heart muscle. Your heart muscle needs the oxygen that the blood carries. Angina may feel like pressure or a squeezing pain in your chest. It may feel like indigestion. You may also feel pain in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or back.

Angina is a symptom of coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common heart disease. CAD happens when a sticky substance called plaque builds up in the arteries that supply blood to the heart, reducing blood flow.

There are three types of angina:

  • Stable angina is the most common type. It happens when the heart is working harder than usual. Stable angina has a regular pattern. Rest and medicines usually help.
  • Unstable angina is the most dangerous. It does not follow a pattern and can happen without physical exertion. It does not go away with rest or medicine. It is a sign that you could have a heart attack soon.
  • Variant angina is rare. It happens when you are resting. Medicines can help.

Not all chest pain or discomfort is angina. If you have chest pain, you should see your health care provider.

Amitiza Muscle Spasms Reviews

Fri, 28 Nov 2008
I suffer with IBS-C and my doctor recently prescribed Amitiza. It worked the first 2 weeks. However, the 3rd week I experienced side effects that sent me to the ER. I was awakened with a terrible, debilitating pain in my left groin and thought I had a blood clot. The ER found nothing and chalked it up to Muscle Spasms! I began to notice the side effects of nauseau, shortness of breath, sharp headaches, Muscle Spasms, gas, itching, bloating, lower back pain,and the worse of all SEVERE ABDOMINAL PAIN. I began to research the side effects of this drug on-line and discovered that most people who took this drug experienced the sme effects. I thanked God that people took the time to write about their side effects and post them. Someone understands!!! I discontinued taking Amitiza. My colonologist suggest removing my large intestine. I think that's a little drastic, but with all the pain I suffer, I might consider this. Isthere any other hope?
