Same symptoms

I had the same symptoms that you all are saying about 3 years ago and they had lasted something like 6-8 months and I ended up losing a ton of weight because food itself seemed to just make me nausous. So eating wasn't really a top priority, then i started blacking out, not falling over but my vision would just slowly close in like i was in a tunnel and i would end up standing/sitting there just not able to see anything. It was quite scary. And all of a sudden it all seemed stopped happening and i became healthy again. I figured that it was all caused by stress because that time in my life was very stressful and i have never been one to deal with stress properly. But the symptoms still happen every once in awhile but nothing as severe and long lasting. Just recently though I got some flu-like symptoms for a half a day then all of a sudden i got severe stomache and chest pains....worse pains i have ever felt i was sure i was having a heart attack (i'm only 24 so very scary). I went to the hospital and they did blood tests, ct scan, x-ray and an ekg but said all they could find was really high D-dimer results and the ct scan showed fluid sitting on top of my stomach and this could have been caused by a ruptured cyst. They then just shoved me out the door and said just come back if i had the chest pains again, they had died down but not completely in the 5 hours i was at the hospital. I was really surprised at how unseriously they took the situation considering the amount of pain i had been in. And i was wondering if anyone esle had a similar experience and maybe this is all caused by cysts.
