back story, 24 male, asthma as a child but grew out of it by the time I was 13.
(please move this topic if its in the wrong section)
I do not know what I have and I am lost, my condition seems to be getting worse with time.
It all started last April, I just finished losing 27lbs for a bodybuilding competition, I still had a bad diet(would cheat and eat lots of nutella) , I wore a "new sweatshirt to the gym" last year April I almost blacked out in the gym, parents had to get me. (first episode of this) Symptoms happened on and off during the summer of 2014, I was still able to work out sometimes then other days I could not at all.
Last year in August I went to the gym and felt like crap, I got home and couldnt eat a chicken salad, my throat tighten and started to shake a bit. I went to the ER for/treated for heart palpitations and released(I went to my general doctor and had a holter monitor wore for 4 weeks and they found nothing, my doctor said it was all in my head, sort of brushed me off)
From September to Jan, I was able to work out all hardcore and had no problems till the 2nd week in Jan, I had similar symptoms come back and held me up for about 2 weeks.
Over time I started to blame it on poor sleep habbits, I would have only a few hours of sleep then hit the gym (after a paper or something) Though in August I was on summer break.This past weekend I was up all night for a paper (5 hours of sleep, class and gym in the late afternoon)
my symptoms started happening about a few weeks ago (March 15th or so) Mild and I could work out on and off.
This past week(monday) I was in the ER(most serious event, we had call 911) but we ended up driving ourselves as the symptoms went away. I could barely breath, my hard would race then slow down, I had to lay face down in the back seat to beable to breath, leaning back in the chair made it worse. I felt like I was about to die. This past week I have not been able to work out at all. I went to do cardio for 10 minutes and I had to go home! My heart rate was abnormally low for cardio, it would switch between 95 and 122, normally I am a steady 125-140. my neck tighten and I got dizzy. I drove home and felt like crap. Normally I can work out for a full hour + do 40 minutes of cardio.
This past week I have not been able to do much.
Just this past hour I was cleaning my closet out and standing on my tip toes for no more than 30 seconds I got the tightness in neck, lump in throat feeling, dizzy, light headed feeling. :((
shortness of breath
tightness in the neck
heart palpations (thought I havent had those attacks since august last year)
blacking out feeling (room color gets lighter/darker)
wanting to vomit
slow down heart
lose of blood flow/tingling in forearms and calves.
loss of sex drive
Not all of these symptoms happen at once, sometimes I will get a few of them and sometimes I will get 80% or more of them.
It feels like my heart is just giving out and can't keep up with my body.
EKG's 4 times,ultra sound, holter monitor found nothing my ER doctor thinks its a chemical imbalnce of low serotonin but these are extreme symptoms.... I am scared and think its much worse, as I keep finding heart disease, caner of the adrenal gland and other disorders on the web related to these symptoms.
I hope someone can help me.
I have an appoitment with the cardiologist this week, I was ordered to get on a stress test. It probably wont happen for another week or two because this is just a consultation.
