Help, My Heart

25

i was misdiagnosing of high blood pressure It's a bit lebghty but I have to explain everything that happened from scratch. Before i start note that i'm just 29 years old Good morning Nairalnders, I was having some ulcer symptoms like chest burn so I went to the hospital, there the nurses checked my BP with an electronic machine and it was normal(132/80) after that, I went into the doctors office and he checked my BP with a manual machine and it showed (150/100) and immediately gave me a blood pressure medication and clopidogrel 75 mg with some ulcer medications. Note that the doctor who said I have high BP only checked my blood pressure once with a manual machine and concluded that I have high blood pressure, even though the nurses then used an electronic machine and it appeared normal. I knew I was misdiagnosed because after I left the state where the hospital is, I've checked my blood pressure up to 10 times both with manual and electronic machine and it appeared normal, other doctors I contacted told me that they shouldn't have given me BP medication after checking my BP just once with a manual machine, especially as the electronic machine showed normal, especially considering my age (I'm 29) and adviced me to stop. The problem now is that, from the time I started taking this medication, I've been experiencing pain on my heart, I mean like the exact spot where my heart is, serious heart burn and pain at that very spot where my heart is, anytime I touch that spot I feel the pain more. This problem i have continued even after I stopped taking the BP medication and the clopidogrel, I've read online and saw that these two medications have serious and life threatening side effect. I went to another hospital in the state where I currently reside and the doctor said I'm having a panic attack, and give me at anti depressants/anxiety medication, together with a medication that is mostly prescribed for epileptic patients. I bought the medication but couldn't take them as I was scared, as I don't feel anxiety or depressed neither do I have epilepsy. THE PROBLEM NOW IS THAT, I'M STILL EXPERIENCING THIS SEVERE HEART PAIN(BURNING AND PAIN), LITERARILY ON MY THE EXACT SPORT WGERE MY HEART IS. I'M SCARED OF NIGERIAN HOSPITALS, THEIR MISTAKES CAN BE FATAL, OUR DOCTORS DON'T LISTIN, WHEN YOU TALK TO THEM THEY JUST START WRITING WITHOUT PAYING ATTENTION. I'M SCARED OF TAKING ENGLISH DRUGS, PLEASE I NEED SUGGESTIONS ON HAVE TO TACKLE THIS THE HEARBAL WAY OR WITH SUPPLEMENTS. I'VE SPENT OVER 100K ALREADY. I CHECKED MY BP LAST WEEK MONDAY AND IT READ 120/80.
