For the past year ive had pain in my chest on left side... it happens randomly , sometimes stabbing pain sometimes burning but there's always a dull ache thats there... someday s shooting pain in my left arm as well... and recently pain in left shoulder blade ... seems like my whole upper torso aches.. to sum it up it all started about 9 months ago... I would feel jolt Like pain in my heart.. then I would instantly start panicking and get short of breath and have heart palpations. I thought I was having a heart attack. After a few episodes like this my father made me go to the ER... at the ER my heart rate was 130 and my blood pressure was through the roof... EKG came back fine and xray and bloodwork was fine... they wrote it off as anxiety... I kept going back to doctor and they thought maybe chosteocondritious (not sure of spelling) at another visit after telling him I still have the symptoms and felt as though my heart was beating out of my chest he did notice how high my heart rate was even at rest... so he then diagnosed me with SVT.. tachynicardia ... I was prescribed metotoprol daily and celexa for anxiety... well the meds seemed to help with my constant pounding heart but im still suffering from chest pain on my left side and constant pain between shoulder blades and down into my left arm at times. It's so frustrating . I am a overall healthy 28 year old female. I have a stressful strenuous job lifting people at the nursing home daily... I'm just still concerned that something serious is wrong... if it was muscular you would think it would be gone by now . It's been almost a year with all this... I've become obsessed with my breathing and feels like I'm always trying to get a deep breath . I go tomorrow morning to get my gallbladder checked.. doctor wants to rule that out... so we will see. I'm just worried sick that any day now ill drop dead of a heart attack 😯 any advice out there? I forgot to mention a few weeks ago when I was dressing a resident , I was bent over and when I went to stand up I had a fierce pain in my chest that was so terrifying that even the resident was asking if i was ok... after leaning up the pain subsided but for the hour after that happened, it would hurt to take a deep breath in...... ugh I just want anwsers ..
