Hi guys, I've been comtemplating whether or not I should write this because I don't usually talk about myself. Just to note, I smoke heavily, I used to play football for 4/5 years, though I dont anymore.
I'm 18 years old (male) and at my first year of University...I am usually a happy, helpful, social and loving person.
After my bumpy past with the law, almost going to prison for over 2 years, I narrowly got let off with probation...this was almost 2 years ago if not longer. During my probation period, I changed myself to side onto my more helpful, loving side. I help everyone that I possibly can and I always show love to people. After a lot of downs since then with very few ups, this is how I am now.
I am feeling tired, mentally, emotionally and physically. I feel weaker than ever and I cannot eat. I've only had one proper meal in 10 days where the other days I've lived on energy drinks and crisps/sweets. I feel a strong strong pain in my heart and chest often, the pain is undescribable, it hits me when I'm walking, a bit angry or randomly. Ive been feeling this pain for over 7/8 months but never took action on it. I was taken to hospital by my friends at one point some time ago as I couldnt concentrate, i felt weak and my whole body was literally unresponsive. However, the doctors said it was nothing so I carried on with my life. Soon after or before that, my left eyesight was very cloudy, couldnt see much from it at one point for a few hours and the doctors told me to get my eyesight checked as it couldve been very serious. Again, I forgot about this and carried on with my life.
The heart and chest pain was very regular when I was walking or arguing with someone but wasnt as bad is it is now. The pain would go in a few minutes and my breathing went back to normal short after. However, now the pain has become much more serious...i feel pain in my back, shoulders, neck, arms and at one point my face was feeling very weird. I feel cold but very hot, i constantly get pins and needles, numbness in my legs, arm, hand and toes/feet. At one point I was sleeping for 18/20 hours every day...then it changed to only sleeping for 2 hours and not being able to sleep at all. Now, I fall asleep randomly and just knock out for a couple hours...whether im in lecture or in my bed, i sleep randomly for random stretches of time..
My skin colour has been changing, at times it goes very dark and at times it goes light...
About 2 months ago, I was lying down and I randomly felt a stitch-like pain but much much worse on the right side of my body, just under my ribs. The pain was very tight and painful and kept switching from the right side of my body to the left. I then had a strong pain in my vein in my right arm for about 2 minutes, my heart was racing and my chest was in pain. I was shaking a lot and my temperature was going hot and cold. When the ambulance came, my heart rate was 164 and they estimated it to being much higher earlier when the incident happened at first. They did their ECG and it was just my heart rate that was irregular. 99% oxygen levels and normal blood pressure. They then conducted another ECG when I was taken to the nearby hospital. From then on, the pain has been very common and the symptoms listed above have become more consistent. I have consulted the doctors, they have just taken blood tests and yet another ECG with no irregular results. I still have to take an X-Ray at the hospital to examine my chest/heart...
I am getting mixed answers from the different doctors I see. I understand they are trying to keep me comfortable by not telling me what it actually might bem, but i do not mind...honestly. I have had some doctors say I might have angina, aneamia, thyroids whilst some have even told me cancer. My lecturer has told me to stay away from caffeine as it will just cripple my situation even more...
Please give me your thoughts, no matter what they are...all will be appreciated!! I just want to know what's wrong with me, how serious it might be and how long I have
