I'm 19 years old (soon 20 in a month). So the past 6-7 months have been complete hell for me. It all started with pressure in chest and high blood pressure. I went through serveral blood works and heart echography, 24hr holter and liver test. Nothing was found. In fact, still to this day, doctors can't explain my high blood pressure because there is no family history and they can't find an underlying issue.
Anyways, all those tests were back in august. Then september and october passed and I was feeling much better. However, at the end of october, I started feeling chest pains again and occasional pains with deep breaths. I went to ER again and they conducted new tests for Lupus and other immune disorders and nothing was found. November went by and my symptoms got worst and worst so I went back to ER again and, once again, they found nothing. I even had an ultrasound of my thyroid and it worked perfectly fine.
And now, for the past few weeks, I've been having those abdominal pains that feel like something is pinching me inside. The pain usually lasts a few seconds and goes away and comes back without any consistency. It can be to the left or to the right just like my chest pains. There's no real pattern to the pain, similarly to my chest pains. In fact, my chest pains are similar to my abdominal pains where they lasts usually for a few seconds and feel like something is pinching me and then goes away.
I saw countless of doctors and specialists over the past 6 months and none of them seem to be able to find the reason why I have those pains. I was recently diagnosed with a very low calcium and vitamin D levels. However, my internist told me that they don't usually cause such pains.
Of course, I'm getting more and more worried that it might be cancer as that's pretty much the only thing that is left in terms of a reason and because it seems the pain is spreading. (First started in my chest and is now in my upper abdomen too).
I would really appreciate if anyone maybe lived through something similar or if anyone could give me an idea of what it could be. Thanks!
