I am a 36 year old male. I have been healthy my whole life. I've never had surgery or any serious illness aside from the occassional cold. I never touch medication and have rarely needed to see a doctor. There is no history of serious illness in my family and my grandparents are in their 80's and still going strong. In fact my great grandmother only recently past at 94.
I have been suffering from who-knows-what. I have seen many different doctors who have subjected me to countless tests. I've had blood tests, urine tests, ECGs, 24-hour heart monitors, ultra-sounds etc and 4+ years on I am no further along in discovering what is wrong with me. Urine and blood comes back negative for problems. All mt physical tests come back normal with doctors and nurses often telling me I'm in great physical condition. And yet I am suffering.
I don't notice the symptoms during the day but at night, especially when I lie down ready to sleep the symptoms start. Heart palpitations pounding in my chest, dizziness, cold sweats, panic attacks, anxiety, thoughts of hopelessness etc. In addition to the tests mentioned above I've had blood pressure tests, iron deficiency tests etc and all is fine.
I've forced myself to exclude sugar from my diet for months. I drink only filtered water. I eat clean and healthy. I even lost 4 stone. Nothing makes any difference. This is ruining my life. I am tired all the time I closed my gym (I'm a personal trainer) as I didn't have the energy to train my clients or train myself plus I was an emotional wreck. I'm running out of savings, still have student loans to pay and I'm finding I no longer want to leave the house. To do so might put me in a situation where I have a panic attack in public. I don't know what else to do. Nobody seems to know what is going on and I've lost faith in the medical professionals.
How do I get my life back?
