Question: Pain in the left collarbone
|wolfcad - Tue Mar 29, 2005 12:47 am||
I was hospitalised 3 years ago for heart attack like symptoms. They appeared after I had a rare reaction to a drug pentasa which I was taking to help control my IBS. I experienced this pain in my collarbone for the first time then. I was then hospitalised until the situation went under control. Unfortionately, the doctors did not know what was wrong with me or how to fix my condition, my body just fixed itself. It has been 3 years since then, and the pain never realy went away, it just showed itself in a barable form. Basically, the pain is:
- pain in the left collarbone
- accelerated heart beat ( i believe due to pain)
- throbbing of the heartbeat in the collarbone
- "rotting" and twisting sensation of the collarbone
It really perturbs me when I feel this pain. I extremely dislike it especially as it comes and goes infrequently. Any information on what this may be, or what can be done to prevent this pain would be greatly appreciated.

Some of the side effects of pentasa may include chest pain, shortness of breath, etc. You may want to inquire about another treatment for your IBS if the symptoms persist and are bothersome.
