This isn't actually for me. These symptoms are in my 21 year old girlfriend. For as long as I've known her she has complained about chest pains, shortness of breath and occasionally dizziness. These can be mild or severe. They also do NOT relate to physical activity. In fact she has said she usually feels best when she is active. The mild cases seem to occur at random with no noticeable cause. The more extreme symptoms will hit when she is emotionally stressed or upset making me think it could be something related to anxiety. In addition to these symptoms, she's been told many times by several different people, including me, that her heart beat seems slightly faster than it should be at it's resting rate. Even a few doctors have noticed this but dismissed it saying things like "You're probably just nervous."
I'm sure anyone here just like everyone elsewhere (including me) will say the same thing "Go to the doctor ASAP" Well for her own reasons this isn't happening. She's in college and still stays with her parents whom she claims have been told about it and just said "it's probably nothing" She doesn't want to "bug" them about it further and I can't get her to go to the doctor herself or let me take her. Just trying to get through the first step and that's maybe getting some sort of idea of what's going on with her. Hopefully I can get through to her after that.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
