I'm 19 and have the last 2 months from hell. It started with a month long constant tension headache which the doctors seemed to think was anxiety driven. My mum finally pushed for some blood tests to be done because of that and my other symptoms which included tingling in my fingers and extreme fatigue (although I'd had this for so long I couldn't remember when it had even started). Got the results back and I was deficient in b12 and my thyroid was borderline low. So I've just finished my course of 5 b12 injections over the last 2 weeks. However last Friday I started experiencing severe chest pains and slight pressure and so was taken to a&e. I had had 3 ECG'S at home with the paramedics who found I had a Mobitz block (apparently pretty common and not serious) but rang a doctor and decided i should go in anyway. Had another one at the hospital and the doctor said it wasn't a heart attack and that it was probably Pluirecy! Went back to doctors on Tuesday because I was convinced it wasn't and after doing the usual blood pressure and pulse checks she said that it was probably costochondritis because it was slight tender to touch. However, I'm still freaking out slightly that it's something more serious! I've had an achy left arm since Saturday which the doctor seemed to think was due to the injection causing a reaction in it. The tingling has also gotten worse in my fingers and sometimes my arm feels numb. And my chest pain has gotten worse. It's always aching and feels pressured. My breasts feel so heavy and full and the sharp pains are worse and are waking me up at night. It also tends to hurt more after eating a meal. It is slightly tender to touch but only in certain places and not all the time. It's by no means an agonising pain when touched as some people described. It also doesn't hurt at all when deep breathing or sneezing etc. So is anyone else feeling the same way?? I feel like the doctors don't take me seriously and I'm just so tired all the time and am constantly checking if my chest hurts to touch and get so frustrated that I cry at least once a day. I obviously don't want it to be something more serious but I'm so scared it is and I've been misdiagnosed
