The tiredness and itching/tingling can come from the amioderone. These are side effects of this medication. Also sometimes heartburn problems can feel similar to heart related chest pain. Have you tried taking an anti-acid to see if it helps to relieve any of the symptoms. You can try something like Tums, Mylanta, Gaviscon or Maalox to work immediately and if that does seem to help relieve symptoms then you can ask the Dr if you can take a PPI like Nexium, Prilosec, or Prevacid-something along that line. Before you take the antiacids, you might consult with the pharmacist to be sure none of them react with your meds. I'm pretty sure Tums would be safe, but I'm not as sure on the other antiacids. Keep searching for answers and keep your Drs on top of it. They are looking at cardiac and ruling out cardiac problems so it likely something they are not looking at. I hope you find answers soon!
