i'll try to be concise ! for the past 3 years or so I have been having a bit of a struggle with my doctor to get certain symptoms investigated (tingling in legs, extreme fatigue) - with effort I have been given blood tests for diabetes, had a liver scan & also seen a rhuematologist - so far no one has confirmed what is causing this & I have to keep pushing to be given other tests. Despite having right bundle branch block at no time has anyone checked my heart & my blood pressure has only been taken twice, at the start of all this. Anyway, the fatigue & leg symptoms have got worse & now I, more or less, spend much of the time having to rest & not doing much.
a couple of weeks ago I felt a dull pain in my chest for about a second, along with a sensation I can only describe as a feeling of being pulled backwards from the point in my chest where the pain was - a bit like being winded but in the chest rather than the stomach / lungs. Since then this has happened a few more times & I'm rather worried as to what it could be.
It seems to me that given that i'm already unwell I should be able to have some tests done on my heart to find out what this could be - if indeed it is anything to do with my heart, but I get the impression that my doc has, more of less, decided that either my other symptoms are undiagnosable or that lots of it is psychological (it definately isn't !).
has anyone on this forum had a similar chest area symptom or know what it might be ? to someone who hasn't had heart problems before it feels a bit like my heart blinking out or something !
