I am hoping somebody reading this can offer the benefit of their own experience to help me understand what is happening with me. Here goes...
March Last year I experienced several episodes of vertigo and aching between my shoulder blades. This lasted on and off for six weeks. I was sent for echo cardiogram, ecg and stress test all after symptoms had subsided (nhs waiting lists...) and i passed them all no problems found.
August this year I had a major episode of a sense of doom followed by an adrenaline rush and palpitations (no pain). over the next few weeks I began having several episodes of vertigo and ill feeling that sent me running to a and e convinced I was having a heart attack or going to have one. My bloods and ecg all came back clear. I have since had a build up of symptoms of chest pain (central and to the left rib cage) pains in between my shoulder blades, my left shoulder and down my left arm. I have had a pain that runs from my chest to my right thumb and up to my chin. the left side of my neck gets stiff (comes and goes) and aches up to the left of my lower jaw. I have upper abdominal pain and fleeting waves of an acidic feeling in my stomach (comes and goes) I feel like I dont get a satisfying breath on my left side often. When I exert myself I have the vertigo episodes accompanied by a hot/cold straining heavy pain in both shoulders that stops me in my tracks. This only lasts a few seconds and goes away leaving me feeling really crap. The last time this happened two days ago for a few hours I had a feeling of hot/cold semi numbness in the left side of my head my left shoulder arm and ribcage. ECG has been fine, another echo 3 weeks ago was fine and a holter monitor has shown nothing although I had no major episodes whilst wearing it. I was discharged from cardiology 3 weeks ago on the strength of these tests but im not convinced this isnt my heart. I have asked to be refered back to cardiology but cant get an appointment until feb 2017.
Iam considering going private and requesting a ct angiogram.
this has been going on for over 3 months now. can anybody offer any similar experience. your help would be much appreciated.
