I am 28 with ADHD and Bipolar disorder For years I have had random bouts of severe chest pain which best explained feels like someone stabbing the left side of my chest it happens quite quickly meanwhile i get dizzy disoriented and feel extremely tired afterward. I went to my previous doctor and he did no tests other then listening to what i said and then precceded to tell me that it was a panic attack and that women in the 60's got them all the time. needless to say i changed doctors but my question is panic attacks from what i hear happen quite often if you are getting them but this pain happens maybe 4-5 times a year so i was wondering if i should ask my new doctor to test for angina or should i just trust the old doctor's diagnosis. I have also since these pains have been happening cant seem to get enough sleep often wake up ready to go right back to bed and have gotten sick more then i ever have before (before these started about 2 yrs ago i got sick maybe 1 time within 5 yrs whereas let alone this year have gotten bronchitis several(4-6) times as well as pneumonia twice and i had severely bad infected teeth which were removed about a yr or two ago so i was also wondering if these things are all connected or am i just looking at two different connect the dots?
