I had the second part of medical abortion pills this morning,

Customer Question

I had the second part of medical abortion pills this morning, i have taken solpadol to ease the pain and felt better through the day. I last took 2 solpadol at midnight before i went to sleep, i have woken up with chest pains and i am really worried. I am 20. Could it be anything to do with the medication i have taken? Or would it be heartburn i have never suffered with anything like this

Hi--and we can continue after this but if it's related to the pills the only thing this could be would be a pulmonary embolus from a blood clot in the lung caused by the hormones. While it could just be reflux and heartburn, if you have never had pains like this before it could also be heart pain, even at your age. Either way you need to consider this a life threatening emergency and you need to get to an emergency room right away for evaluation

The pain seems to have settled within the last few minutes would it still be best for me to go to an emergency room? Can you describe the feeling of heartburn and acid reflux?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
A burning acid like pain in the chest but seriously you may be taking your life in your own hands if you wait to see if this resolves by tomorrow.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Specialist experienced in heart diseases.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Without any shortness of breath, this is not likely pulmonary embolism or blood clot.
The food tube esophagus muscles can cause severe spasms as side effect from solpadol.
This can result in severe chest pain.
At your age heart disease is very unlikely.
Heart burn or acid reflux at night is common and that can precipitate this type of pain.
So, if the pain has settled, there is no reason to worry about it.

Best wishes,


It was my pleasure to help you today.

Hi. We can't examine you and to say you shouldn't get this checked out is beyond our abilities here. While this may not be serious you shouldn't ignore it and wait to see if things will be all right
