Pain

hi

i would like to start by advising u have suffered from anxiety for many years lots of which is around health so i tend to worry massively about health issues.

anyway i have been exercising alot recently and getting palpitations and like little brain zaps sometimes afterwards.

yday i completed a gym class and came out feeling abit light headed and exhausted but didnt think much of it then this morning i was having horrific shoulder and neck pain radiating down to the middle of my back and around to my ribs.

i called the dr who has given me an appointment but the pain is still there although it has improved and i feel scared that it is heart related.

advice welcome and very much appreciated x

    it could be from not working out in a while if your dr checked you out you could always call him back and ask for an ekg and blood work if it makes you feel better lightheaded and exhausting can be caused by also not eating before workout not enough fluids in the system serious reason to but i would look at that first also how hard you excersise they say to go slow when you start out walking like aerobitcs if you went over board it can do this too

    If you have doubts, you need to have a consultation with a cardiologist.

      here in canada we have to be referred i know it stupid so what happens when your dr thinks your too young and such to have heart problems like for example i was very sick a year ago due to mold exposure anyways i had no idea that was the cause i went to the hospital like 20 or more time eith shortness of breath, back pain, chest pain now yes they did do an ekg and blood work to make sure it wasnt a heart attack but if i was a man i would of got this plus probably an echo stress test etc
