23 yrs old Male.
So about a month and a half ago I had a caffeine overdose. I attempted to flush my system by drinking a lot of water to no avail, so I ended up in the ER. Flushed my system and said I was good to go. Then a few weeks later my girlfriend came down with gastroenteritis (probably contracted by our son in daycare) and she ended up in the ER. They gave her IV fluids and sent her on her way. I got the symptoms next night. Throwing up and liquid stool simultaneously. I never went to the doctor as I just continued to drink fluids
Fast forward two weeks I start having heart palpitations, in the form of slow Heavy beats and my left arm is numb. I go to E.R thinking I'm having a heart attack. They say I'm fine no issues, my phosphorus was low but I'm on a medicine for that now. I start getting pains in my chest along with the palpitations and arm numbness and tingling now. So I go to a cardiologist, they say I'm 22 and it's rather anxiety or has to do with the gastro.
I set up an appointment with my gastro but it isn't for a few more days, as well as my family doctor (haven't been there in 2 years)
Today I got severe abdominal pain and got the liquid bowel movements again, accompanied by heart palpitations. I've stopped going to the gym since this has me so down and physically and mentally disconnected. I've only been able to go to the gym two times since all this started and it's not helping my body or self asteem either. I'm slipping up at work and I have a retirement job that I can't mess up at and I feel bad because I'm so disconnected from my girlfriend and my son.
Anyone have similar issues?
