Ill try to make it as brief as possible. I am (was) a very happy & healthy 20 year old male. JAN 15 I was admitted to hospital with a rapid and irregular heartbeat.I had to have my heart restarted with a defibrulator, and they said it was because i hadent drank alcohol in a while and the few drinks I had shocked my syestem?
Anyway, never had any problems after for 6 months, went out clubbig drinking as any 20 year old does. Then in August went to ZATE, a small greek island on a lads holiday. I was very careful with what i drank, as i diddent want anything to happen to me like it did 8 months prior.
On the 5th morning of my holiday, after a very steady night and hardly any alcohol consumed i woke up with my heart POUNDING. It made me then have a panick attack, as i was so scared my heart was playing up. After about an hour my heart calmed right down, but left me with a chornic pain in my chest wall, I couldent lie down, or on my left side either, and pain was also in my neck.
The pain got alot worse and i flew back to england ealy straight to A&E. Since i have had every blood test under the sun, X-Rays, Heart Scan, even an MRI scan of my back. All the results are clear! They said i had a very minor infection and prescibed me antibiotics which did nothing at all fo the pain.
Every day of my life i am in agonising chest and back pain. The doctors have told me there is nothing else they can do !? Ive seen a heart specalist aswell and my heart is fine and i apparantley have an allergy to alcohol, since august i havent touched a drop.
Before going to zante i was very fit and healthy and now every day of my life is ruled by the pain i am suffering in my chest and back. It is a dull ache, which sometimes turns into a sharp stabbing pain reaching under both of my armpits! It never goes away and paracetamol etc dosent touch the pain at all. I am also seeing a chiropractor and have been for 3 months, which hasent really done anything either !
Can anybody help or tell me what I can do ?
