I used to be a very active person. Would regularly practice sports, and feel energetic until the last couple of years when various strange symptoms began taking over me. About 5 or 6 years ago, I started getting palpitations out of nowhere. Since then I've been through many tests, like: EKG, Echocardiogram, Holters, and many blood tests. Three different cardiologists have told me to relax and not take caffeine, that Im alright. But for these last 5 or 6 years Ive been having those pvcs,pacs, pretty regularly. And lately tachycardia episodes have been somewhat regular too. At this point I actually start to feel anxious, cause it feels like its too much. My cardiologist says I have a "sensitive electrical system". What does that even mean?? Lately Ive been very sedentary and when I try to exercise I get palpitations. No other symptoms tho.
My issues dont stop there. for about 5 years too, Ive been suffering from GERD, my last endoscopy showed improvement, but I dont feel much better. Most days I feel bloated or with esophagus or stomach disconfort and pain, despite sticking to the diet the gastrologist gave me. (No citrics, or spices, fatty, fried food, chocolate, coffee, etc).
The GERD combined with the constant palpitations are driving me crazy. Recently I feel all sorts of weird symptoms like lack of balance, tremors, dizzy spells, and things like that. Ive been to the ER several times because of fear of having something bad, but everytime all test look fine. So Im thinking those additional symptoms might be psychosomatic in nature. I dont know anymore. I feel like crap all the time.
Ive also been skinny guy all my life, but all my vitamin and nutrient test appear to be on normal ranges and I love eating, it just doesnt help that my GERD diet is so restrictive.
At the very least, I need some peace of mind.
