    Heart Issue/Severe Headaches

    I had a TIA just over a year ago. I also have a murmur or hole in my heart. I take metoprolol 50mg 2 times a day. 3 weeks back I had a episode where my chest hurt, tightness & pressure so I took a nitroglycerin tablet. Pain went away. For the past 2 weeks, I have had severe headaches, no relief & constant. I had talent ibuprofen 600/800 & all other kinds medicine with no relief. Went to local doctor she said sinus infection 5 days later I was in ER with pain I just couldn’t take anymore. They did blood work & scans. No sinus infection but no answer also. Pain medicine has not worked. The doctor wants me to go see my cardiologist because he thinks my brain may not be receiving enough blood flow/oxygen because of my hole in my heart. Very tired, dizzy at times & no relief from the headache pain. Any help? Scheduling appt with cardiologist ASAP. Pain is horrible & my heart is having flurries again even with taking my medicine
