Default Bad Side Effects: Help! What should I do?

I started taking the Ortho Evra patch almost a year ago and since then i've been experiencing some sever side effects. I my doctor and she said that the things i'm experiencing could simply be side effects from my sever back problems but I hadn't experienced this until after I began taking the patch. I recently began having what I believed were panic attacks. I have shortness of breath, and intense chest pain. I also have been having bad stomach pain, especially during my period. I've been experencing bad migraines two or three times a week. The pain I previously experienced with my period has gotten better with the Ortho Evra patch, but these other side effects aren't worth continuing using it. What should I do?

Ortho Evra caused me to have severe migraines 2x a month and lasting for weeks. I was in pain more than half the time. I would feel sick and not be able to think clearly. I may not have had many other symptoms then but not worth taking with that alone.
