Hello All ,
First of all thank you admin for having such a wonderful forum. Somehow I navigated to this website via google while I was searching for my symptoms.
I understand this forum is to discuss and share your thoughts and I am not totally relying on thoughts made here. I am still supervised under my Doctor.. Any help or kind words appreciated.
About Me :
Age : 30 , Male
Weight : 200 lb , Height = 6 ft
Activities : Used to do weight lifting , Running etc.
For about last 4-5 years I am having some sort of dull pain around my left upper chest , shoulder , arm area. This is not consistent pain. It comes stays for month , 15 days and goes away but I remember its there since long time ...This pain is always changing its positions , sometimes its on my back side , sometimes its on upper left chest . If I press it firmly I can feel that pain area .
My First visit to doctor - DEC 2014 :
Frequent chest fluttering , left side pain... sudden nightmares whiles sleeping and feels like I was having heart attack. This happened multiple times for 2 nights
Consulted to doctor , performed EKG , Blood Pressure and result was everything normal . So as doctor suggested I started working on Exercise , meditations etc..
Emergency Visits for last 2 months ( July , August ) :
I somehow managed to live with this pain for years without any worry but it was 2 months back while I had chest pressure , dizziness and I was scared if I had heart attack. So went to ER did TROPONIN , EKG , Several X - Rays , Nuclear Stress test but everything came as a normal.
Blood pressure was rose but doctor said its because I got panic and said its anxiety attack
This happened 3 times when I went to ER and doctor said its nothing to worry as all tests are normal.
Now behind the scenes my mind always thinks about this pain , I contineously monitor my heartbeats via apple watch and had many visits to check my blood pressure with my family doctor. In between I was diagnosed with H Pylori bacteria which caused chest pressure and Gas symptoms .
I am still worried about what is happening , is it something related to heart , elevated heart bits , fluttering and left side pain is it Anxiety + Costochondritis effect ?
Thank You.. Any help/ kind words appreciated
