Always been so lucky to have fabulous health until I reached 50. For the last year I have been struggling with the most frightening symptoms. Have been hospitalised twice with what I thought were heart attack symptoms, chest tightness, heavy arms etc. Now the episodes seem to present differently with dizzyness, headaches, strange pains in neck, a feeling when I wake as if I am going to pass out, and a floating pins and needles feeling in any or all parts of my body! I should say I am still having periods and my GP wanted to throw HRT at me even though I didn't really see how you can prescribe drugs without first gaining an understanding of your hormone levels, when I requested testing I was told testing was unreliable. Desperate for a solution, I did go with her recommendation and tried HRT but found that the symptoms in fact got worse so stopped taking the medication. Have had all sorts of tests which all came back clear so now I just don't know what to do or where to go. I am finding it really hard to tolerate and or understand these 'episodes,' GP now really doesn't seem to be willing to help, where does one find expertise? Any suggestions most welcome!
