I have a heart complaint and last year I had a pain in my chest and I went to A and E with my wife.

@A MyDepressionTeam Member Goldsmith. I went to the GP because I woke up completely numb down my left hand side including my mouth to my feet. I got some gel for my joints and an increase in my antedepressants !!!.Why? I have been OK so far, it hasn't happened again. thank goodress. I don't like the increase in meds. I am wired and jittery . I am still depressed and so bad I had to ring the samara tans last week. You take care . Jenny x
