So about 4 months ago I had an energy drink for the first time in years and my heart was racing like I've never felt before. I felt like that was gonna be it for me. Anyways for about a weeks I was having some serious chest pain and I was really starting to freak out and I was extremly dizzy so I went and saw a cardiologist as well as a neurologist! I had an echo and ekg and a 24 holter monitor I even had a stress test.. they all came back okay just my heart rate seems to be running a little high about in th 80's and my doc is not concerened with that for some reason. So I also had a MRI of the brain. Everything was good but a very small bit of white matter and my doctor told me people who have horrible migraines get that and its okay. So about three months ago I started to take prilosec because my cardiologist told me I had GERD and it really helped I felt great. The dizziness finally went away after about another months so two months in. I stopped the prilosec because I thouhgt I was okay and sure enough all my heart and chest pain returned. I started it again and I started to feel a little better not great though. I have been to the ER so many times in between all of this probably `15 times no joke.. it's crazy. They say my heart is fine and that it's anxiety.. All my ekg's are fine except for occasionally it'll say tach.. because of my fast heart rate. My blood pressure has also been pretty. Anyways these last three weeks have been the worst ever.. I have been to the ER about 5 more times and nothing. I feel like there's something blocking my lung on my left side and there is pain in my chest.. I was feeling a little better but now it's the worst ever. My bf's bestfriend that I've know for 7 years passed away of a over dose and I don't know if that is what has made things worse for me idk.. I keep feeling like my heart is gonna stop like I'm gonna die in my sleep. So I haven't been sleeping at all and that's really effecting me.. Palps have been pretty often too.. I feel like my pulse is weak too... saw my cardiologist today and I got another Holter 48 hours he doesnt think I need it but I guess I convinced him. I feel like they missed something and my end is near if they can't figure it out.. I don't belive this is anxiety. Wish I could get an Coronary Angiography. Don't thinkI would be able too. I'm 23 by the way 5'1 136 pounds. I could lose weight I know. I'm on xanax .25mg it helps most of the time but it doesn't really take away how I feel.. tried zoloft had a bad reaction and they want me to try beta blockers i'm scared of those because I feel like my pulse is weak. I need help I can't sleep anymore and this is just to much. I even went to the ER this morning becuase I woke up and couldn't breath well my pulse felt weak and they said I was just freaking out..
