Hi all , I'm a 20 yo female and I've been suffering daily for 6 months now with left sided chest pain, palpitations, dizziness, fatigue and breathlessness. My heart rate never seems to go below 100bpm.
It all set in one night when I was lying in bed and I immediately went the the ER because I thought I was having a heart attack. I've had numerous blood tests, chest X-ray, ecg, ekg, electrocardiogram, Holter monitor and event monitor all of which came back perfect. My doctor diagnosed me with anxiety and panic attacks but is refusing to give me any medication to help.
Cutting back on sugar and smoking seems to help but I've yet to experience a completely normal day. This past week has been the worst for me as every time I walk anywhere it sets in really bad so I've been housebound.
Could this possibly be anxiety? Sorry about the long winded post but if anyone has any ideas on what this could be i would love to know.
