I am a 21 year old female about 4 months ago I had a sudden onset of dizziness and rapid pulse, I was also struggling to breathe a little.I thought that if I had these symptoms again I would go to the doctor. About two weeks later I started to have these episodes more frequently. I would get dizzy, light-headed, nauseas and have a very fast heart beat. I decided to go to the doctor as I couldnt carry on like that. The doctor was alarmed by my pulse and sent me for an ECG. The ECG showed my heart rate at 113. He said this was not normal and that we needed to find the underlying cause. He then sent me for a blood test testing my thyroid. In the mean time I was put on Pur-Bloka 10mg for the heart rate. My thyroid test came back normal and about 2 days later my chest started to feel tight and burn along with dizziness again. I went back to the doctor and he sent me for a lung function test and a stress ECG. It was not good according to the doctor as my capacity was only 90%, he showed me the graph and that the slope was not at the right angle.The doctor looked at the results and gave me a prescription for and accuccuhaler to help my lungs and he ordered tests for anemia and a full blood count as he saw that I was pale in the face and on my palms. The anemia results came back and they were normal. My doctor then referrred me to a physician. I decided to see another doctor instead and it turns out I am alergic to my own dog as a result I vaccum the house and brush my dog once a week with an industrial mask on. My dog does not live inside the house, I am getting Celestone Soulspan shot every 4 months but I worry about the side effects. Is there anything else I can do (no, I am not getting rid of my dog)
Any thoughts/ opinions?
