I've been having concerning symptoms, and being dismissed by my GP as having Anxiety, but I choose to deny this now since the symptoms have now become more severe.
I've been having problems with my heart rate increasing, sometimes decreasing and blood pressure increasing at times, and shortness of breath that feels like my chest is full preventing me from being able to breathe properly and preventing me from being able to breathe in fully. I have also been getting sharp chest pains every time I breathe in. I have been constantly dizzy now for the past year or more with no improvement. I have been having numbness and weakness in different parts of my body at the same time for no apparent reason that I know of. I have also been getting chills occasionally, as well as night sweats. I have also been having brain fog, disorientation and memory problems pretty much constantly throughout the day, but does sometimes improve for a while.
When I am trying to get to sleep, that's when I experience shortness of breath the most along with chest discomfort and mild chest pains. During these symptoms, I tend to get hot and my face, mouth and tongue becomes weak, numb and tingly, as well as other parts of my body such as my arms and legs also becoming numb and sometimes tingly. My mouth is almost always dry, and water doesn't really help. I sometimes get the feeling that feels like a heart attack which gets me very worried and concerned for my heart and health.
If and when these symptoms happen, I need to sit up because I fear I may die if I sleep considering laying down makes my symptoms worse. I started having these symptoms a year or more ago, but they have only got worse during these last few weeks.
I have had ECGs and blood tests during my visit to the GP a year ago, which have all came back fine. That's when the GP told me that my symptoms are most probably being caused by Anxiety, and I did believe this for a while but not anymore considering the severity of my symptoms have gotten worse.
It feels like these symptoms are being caused by some sort of heart condition but I have no clue what heart condition it could be, but I'm pretty certain it must be some sort of heart condition. There is no way Anxiety can make me feel like this, especially when the symptoms I get do seem like they are more related to a heart condition rather than Anxiety.
As I am writing this, I am currently unable to sleep because my chest just feels so full and I am really struggling to breathe. I have fast and slow heart rates that keep changing randomly, and I keep getting this weird feeling in my heart, it feels like a bit of pain and a bit of a cold feeling. My whole body is numb and weak and I find it a little hard to move. I can't lay down and close my eyes for more than 30 seconds without symptoms worsening causing me to have to move around and sit up.
I am wondering if there is anyone going through the same thing or someone who can take a good guess as to what the issue may be because I can't book an appointment at my GP surgery because due to the coronavirus outbreak, they aren't seeing anyone right now. Thank you in advance!
