I'm a 20 year student old female, quite healthy and for three months I have been suffering from chest pains and various other symptoms.
I've always been paranoid about my heart but only because whenever I would drink coffee or over excersise I would get palpatations.
One day three months ago I had some really bad palpatations from a large cup of coffee and from the next day onwards I have been having mild chest pains.
I only had the chest pains at first, they are maily on the left side, sometimes sharp, sometimes achy. I also have the same in my left arm. I went to the GP and have been to A&E three times about this. I've had three rounds of blood tests, ECG's and an X-ray which have all come back clear (expect for the ECG which stated I had innapropriate sinus tachycardia).
Im very guilty of googling symptoms and since doing so I have began to experience many many others. My back occasionally hurts, my teeth, both arms (but mainly left) the left side of my jaw kills to open. I also get occasional twitching around my chest, arms, legs and arms. My chest pains are sometimes on the right side.
My newest symptoms are twitching around my eyes and a tingly feeling on the left side of my face, and a pain in my throat. I've also noticed an irregular rhythm occasionly in my pulse, like a skipped beat here and there.
It's all driving me crazy! I've always been a happy outgoing person but this is ruining me. I'm always scared something bad is going to happen, I hate being on my own, loud noices etc make me nervous. I just doing know what to do. My GP thinks it musculorskeletal and that I have anxiety. I know that a lot of my symptoms do sound like anxiety and the more I've google things the more symptoms I've started to have but I need something to put my mind a rest.
I've booked another GP appointment to ask for more tests done because otherwise my mind will just keep convincing me more and more.
Would be great if people could give me some advise or share their stories!
