I'm male and 29 years of age.

Hello, just joined and decided to share my issue. Over a year ago I was home like I am now and on my laptop , I started to notice that I was taking depp sigh breaths , I found it odd,. I had dinner and back on laptop. All of a sudden I felt really strange , My heart was beating fast , my left arm felt like a dead arm, Dry mouth , I felt dizzy ( Light headed ) my friend was with me and he tried to carm me down, I did - I went to have a shower and after getting dressed it happened again I stated to panic , thinking I was going to die if I passout. I decided to walk to A&E , it's like down the rd from me.

I get there and decide to call my other friend to inform her what was going on , I was feeling a bit better but felt my heart beating fast. After waiting to be seen , I was first seen by a nurse and she asked me quetions. Then I was seen by a Dr, I was connected up to the ECG. Normal, I had blood sugar test , Normal, Lungs and breathing Normal etc. Sent home. I decided to go back to my GP and requested a blood test to see if all was good, came back normal. He asked questions about my life and work and if I was stressed, My answer was NO. However perhaps I was but was thinking I was dealing with it. my job is stress free , lucky for me.

Over a year has past and to be fully honest I still dont feel 'NORMAL' lol.
Sometimes I do feel 100 percent how I used to feel befor this happend.
I am planning a trip to my gp as would like to get it sorted.

Sometimes maybe like 2 times I had this strange plusing feeling on my left arm above the wrist like a heart beat. That really feeked me out but I dont allow my self to freak out.

Last summer while in Malta I was shopping and at one point felt dizzy , put it past however it freaked me out. lol

At time's I just feel that feeling of nervs in my chest and throat. I also had a moment the other day my belly felt horrid i got home and had a sudden case of diarrea, i mean it was like my boddy was flushing its self, this has happend twice in 3 weeks.

I went jogging last Thursday with friend and started running , felt good but then I got this feeling in the middle of my chest ( felt like a stitch ) I told my mate she was like your ok. I started to feel like I was going to panic but I have learnt to controll that. However it did simply freak me out.

I will be honest , When it all started a year ago , I was worried of dying . I felt my Gp really did not help me, all he said is that its stress and i should go swim.

I've not lost any weight for no reason , I've not lost my appetite.

What do you guys and girls think?
