Hi, hoping for some advice what I shall I do.
I have basically accepted death even thoe I have no diagnoses. I am 26 years of age and now finding it physically difficult to do basic tasks even in the house.
I have a severe undetected condition with my heart and the doctors have now have put me down to overthinking my symptoms and not taking me serious enough because the first doctor had wrote that it has now become a chain. When i explain my symptoms they completely now disregard what i am saying like im crazy and dont know my body.
I went to the ER had a ECG sent home. Went to GP "overthinking" your symptoms your fine. So I
I paid privately for a ECHOCARDIOGRAM which took about 5 minutes was rushed report was normal. learning later a ECHO should not be that quick.
I am declining severly and tbh i dont know how i am still standing.
Blood pressure and hr all normal at this time, was a smoker for 10 years started pretty young. Quit 4 years ago as had hypertension. so changed my diet got healthy and reduced my blood pressure naturally.
Its not stress its not anxiety its not in my head, and now i have no energy left to even bother to go to the doctors or a&e again because i just feel like i have to convince them to believe me which is sad.
Symptoms started with general weakness about 2 months ago, then gradually got worse and worse. Symptoms now
arms and head feel floppy almost like they are struggling to get blood, ive not had a stroke or anything i dont think. its more of a circulation problem as i can feel the blood actually struggling to go down the arms 24/7 and sometimes feel like the arms are dead and head droopy.
dizziness loss of balance
my heart can be a regular a normal rate but a very strong beat almost like it struggling.
breathless doing anything
waking up gasping for air, think it is sleep apnea
Im losing my balance and have passed out so now i just sit most of the time as my heart just cant cope
My thoughts are i could possibly have heart disease as i did neglect my body for a long period of time, smoking, obese, bad food etc.
Doctors not taking me serious, dont want to go back to ER or GP as i just have not got the physical strength and also have to convince them something is wrong and get sent home after. am truly wasting away, lost alot of weight also about my shoulders and down my arms.
there is 100% a problem with the heart as i was active guy going out doing things non stop, now suddenly this.
Truly believe it could be heart disease and severe narrowed arterie or something, lack of blood getting to my heart. I dont know what to do have given up and just accepted the fact i am going to die and have already written letters to beleive behind. that is how bad my symptoms are right now.
