I was given a GI cocktail of mylanta, lidocaine viscous and dicyclomine at the er. I went in with chest pains feeling really out of it, shortness of breath, had blisters on the roof of my mouth, tired and couldn't remain awake. It could've been due to an allergic reaction to tramadol pain pills which I got last Friday. A chest xray showed ACUTE bronchitis and chest pains. EKG twice was fine. Did it twice Tuesday and nothing came up, but when I drank that GI Cocktail when my throat got numb, it felt like I was suffocating. I could hardly breathe. It felt like my air intake was closing up on me. I could see in my mind what it felt like it was doing. Like you see pictures in the doctors office of plague built up in the artery and the little hole where the blood barely flows; that's what I saw, but instead of the artery it was a hole depicting how much air flow I felt like I was getting.

Hello, Karen! How are you? I am very sorry about what you've been through, that would be scary, indeed.

Lidocaine is a topical anesthetic, so it can cause numbness of your mouth, throat, and stomach, that is part of the reason it is used in most GI cocktails, the FDA does warn about that being a possible side effect of it. I was given it in the ER once, which help diagnose my gastritis. Other side effects may include nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, and funny aftertaste.

Do they think the chest pain was caused by an acidity issue?

What did they prescribe for the bronchitis?

As to the Tramadol, the FDA does list drowsiness, and sedation as being typical side effects of it, since it is a mild opioid, it has also been known to cause blisters on various parts of the body. It would be best to inform the prescribing doctor of what happened, as it may not be the right medication for you to take.
