Hello i would like to start with saying that i am a pretty healthy 22 year old that doesnt smoke and drinks once every 2 months. I am 140 pounds and 5ft 11ft tall. Today i was on the way to work in the metro and while i was standing up i started getting a mild pain on my left side of the chest i ignored it because i sometimes do get random pains which last a few seconds, the thing is this one didnt go away. At first i though it was my heavy bag that could have caused an irritation but then my heart starting beating pretty quick at about 100 bpm. I didnt give much attention to it i was almost sure that it was going to go away but then that turned into light headness, mild confusion, 130 bpm, weird feelings in both arms and hands. I was sure i was going to die, i ended up skipping work and going to the doctors. Couldnt go to an er because i dont have insurance so i ended up going to this clinic and they hooked me up to an ekg and checked my blood pressure. The results were pretty bad: 130 bpm, 174/85 pressure. They hooked me up to a drip with 1 litre of electrolites and i just lied there for about 2 hours, they thought i was dehydrated because the ekg didnt show any heart problems. When they were letting me go the chest pain would only be there when i walked, its still like this now (8 hours later) im at home and when i stand up to do something my left side of the chest is mildly painful and my heart rate is at 100 since i left the clinic, the past hour it went down to 85-90. Anyone have any ideas what this could be? Could it be a panic attack? Sometimes i wake up in the middle of the night feeling panic in my chest and my heartrate is at 100 bpm and i feel like dieing. Could this be connected? This was the worst i ever experienced..
