This drug was given to enable an emergency C section to take place. The operation was successful but I may have had a heart attack. I had all of the symptoms of heart attack. Extreme pressure on the chest and difficulty breathing. The nurse told my sister that I had a heart attack but without damage. I know that heart attacks cause damage, so I guess I had a severe arrhythmia. I went to the ICU for two days. Prior to this event I had an occasional heart palpitation, and a history of fatigue, borderline hypothyroidism, Lyme Disease, and high liver enzymes following 3 years of antibiotics. This treatment ended 10 years before the incident here. This pregnancy wasn't a problem except for slight problem with blood sugar which I couldn't understand because I was thin and avoided excess carbohydrates. This incident was 12 years ago. More recently, I had an episode of arrhythmia when a friend died. I didn't report this because it wasn't severe. I wish that I had asked some questions after the hospital episode. I was extremely fatigued and focused my energy on my newborn. She is a healthy kid but is going to be treated for hypothyroidism as are my other two daughters and myself. Please let me know if you have any data on similar cases. Thank you.Read More Read Less
