I have slightly myocardial infarction. I have a tendency of depression and whenever I get depressed these problems occur severely. Since one month the pain has increased a lot. I also have chest pain, radiating pain in hands, abdominal pain, back pain, insomnia, dream and vomiting problem. I took medicines but nothing works. Some doctors say I might have a nerve problem.
