    Is your breathing affected and are you getting any palpitations?

      Have they given you a d-dimer blood test? It indicates whether or not you could have blood clots.

      I had something similar to you and I had multiple pulmonary emboli but I was also getting very strong palpitations where it felt like my heart was beating out of my chest! If you haven't had a d-dimer, ask for one just in case. It maybe a neurological disorder though, if they can find nothing wrong with your heart or no clots, maybe ask to see a neurologist.
