For the past 10 months I've had chest discomfort that feels like a dull, fullness feeling, I'm also only 19 and a female if that makes any difference. It radiates to both arms with an uncomfortable feeling, sometimes my arms feel weaker and throat feels like its in knots. It seems to feel worse when I'm resting, stressed (exertion at the same time) overworking my arms, or usually during the night when i'm about to sleep. It's quite better when I'm walking around usually.
Before this started I had acid reflux and a throat infection for the first time, thinking it was just me stressed for a while. but when going to the doctors I found out all of that, I was prescribed some medicine and it got better and went in a few weeks, for the whole one month I was fine and then this suddenly started abruptly. The chest and arm feeling feels a bit like when I had the acid reflux but at the same time it's different and feels worse, I have no indigestion or anything like before, could having acid reflux or the infection damaged anything in my chest?
Ever since this started I also started getting random problems that lasted a few weeks and went away like body numbness, tongue dryness (but felt better when I stopped taking a multivitamin which I started at the time), my chest and upwards feels heated sometimes, eye twitching and I randomly got tinnitus (ear ringing) which is the one I have til now. I don't know if any of them are connected
I have seen some doctors, that I don't feel like they take it seriously or have much knowledge.. I've had an ecg, vitamin blood tests, h pylori test, and even some mri's of my brain and spine that all came back normal. They say maybe it's anxiety or stress? Or that I shouldn't worry it's nothing serious. And I know it's neither because the only stress I have are from these symptoms. I honestly don't know what I should do or where to look anymore... It's just there constantly, I haven't felt like my usual self in so long I feel weak and lost, I'm still so young, I eat healthy and exercise, and I have had to put my whole life on hold because of this
If anyone has had any similar experiences or tips please help, thank you so much
