I'm 26, and I've been having some scary heart symptoms. Palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath, weakness, chest pain, and low blood pressure. I've also had irregular periods, constipation, decreased appetite & weight loss, despite doing my best to eat. My mouth is dry all the time, no matter how much I drink. I can have clear urine but a horribly dry mouth. I try to eat a fairly healthy diet, and am as active as I feel I can be.
My dr is puzzled by what's going on with me. I'm trying to get an appointment to talk to my old dr, since she's very, very good. I saw a cardiologist, but they weren't honest with me about my test results. What she told me was the total opposite of what her report, and the test results, said. I also have fainted once and I had an episode of SVT which landed me in the ER in 2009.
These are the test results so far.
