Undiagnosed heart problems ?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Im at 22yo male quite active and inshape no family history of any heart or blood pressure problems.

about 2 years ago i remember i was laying in my bed about to sleep when suddenly my heart started pounding i felt really short of breath and clamy i woke my sister and she called the ambulance they gone the ecg and gave me a tablet to put under my tounge i cant remember what they said but i didnt wait to see a doctor at the ER because i felt better.

two years passed and i didnt have any problems of that type up until may this year and ever since then iv been having the same heart attack / palpitations symptoms shortness of breath, anxiety, chest pain, sweeting , iv been to the emergency room at least about 3 times a months , in august it was really bad to the point where it turned into like a health anxiety type of thing i was in the ER almost every other day ,

the results all normal ecg/egk where normal cxr was normal tropn levels where normal , but every time it happend it felt the same and i knew it wasnt just anxiety i seen a heart specialist he done the ultrasounds they do and the results where fine

eventualy i seen a physcitrist and he gave me all these anti anxiety meds i chose not to take them i learnd to mange the anxiety myself breathing technicis more exersise, diet it worked from september up until tonight it was all fine ,

i was feeling short of breath all day, at about 6pm sitting in the car with my friend when i just got dull pains in my chest and my shortness of breath got worst my hands sweating and k was just feeling really crap my friend took me to the ER , they ran a ecg/egk the first one was "not normal" so they made me do another one about half a hour later that one was standerd during my time in there i was really dizzy and short of breath my temp was 35.8•c i was getting dull chest pains they ran a blood test and that came back fine they sent me home ,

when i was about to sleeep the palpitations started again they where consistant and diffrent really uncomftable i tried to ignore them and sleep but as i nodded off id feel like my heart would do 1 hard beat and stop so id wake up , now im in here in the Er again done a ecg and waiting to see a doctor i dont even know what im going to say anymore

i feel like i just want to rip out of my own body im really over this is there anything that could be underlying ? should i go to a certain type of specialist and ask for certain types of test? should i just ignore it next time it happens no matter how mad it gets and just wait till i faint or pass out or something i need help , the area i live in is full of gps that are from over seas can barely they speak english they seam like they have no clue , does anyone have a clue what this could be ?

    I am not a medical specialist. You may also want to check with a Cardiologist. Also, check on what is your resting heart beat. It should be between 60 to 100. Although there may be many reasons for heart palpitations, if you have low heart beat, this could be one factor. So check this out as well.

    You may also want to ask for a 'stresstest'.

    Best to consult with your doctor and get actively involved in examining what could be causing your palpitations.

    All the best
