About six weeks ago all the sudden I ran into issues with sleeping because my heartbeat became very prominent (not racing) in my chest, head, neck. It woke me up constantly, as it was quite an annoyance, but it wasn't really painful. Became fairly tired in the day assuming poor sleep at night.
A few nights of this and then I started also having mild stomach pains and intestine pains in various parts of my abdomen and felt a lot of “gassy processing”, bloating and full feeling (even with little or no food at dinnertime). My appetite quickly died down and I started to have bowel issues where I was constipated and what did come out just “loose”. This may be related to stopping my morning coffee thinking caffeine had something to do with my prominent heartbeat; starting caffeine again made me regular again. About this time I started noticing weak/achy knees wrists.
Went out of town for Memorial Day, still had little appetite, and after a few heavy carb meals (I ate small portions), I ended up with some sharp burning reflux that required mylanta/pepto. Those same nights I ended up waking up with cold shakes in the middle of the night. After this weekend, I actually started feeling better and had a good week (figuring this was over with). Though my joints occasionally bothered me.
After the good week, started back with feeling heartbeat AND stomach discomforts again, especially overnight and in the morning.. This time I started having more muscle and joint pain (arthritic type pain) in the morning. I also started to have dizzy/tingling spells in my head/neck in the morning and increasing tiredness. The arthritic pains have now progressed into most of my joints including hands, ankles elbows, etc.
So at this point, I still am having some level of constant stomach & intestine discomfort / heartbeat prominence and really affected by mostly achy joints / exhaustion.
I’m not sure exactly what is going on, but I’m fairly miserable and barely able to function some days.
