Hi Im From New Zealand It All Started On Boxing Day This Year I Awoke From Having A Couple Of Bears The Night Before And Felt I Couldnt Breath It Got So Bad I Went To Er The Done Blood Test For Blood Gas Ratio And It Must Have Been Ok So They Sent Me Home Saying It Was Pulled Skeletal Muscle.
A Week Later Started Noticing I Was Still Getting Short Of Breath And Having Ocasional Palpatations Acouple Weeks Later Started To Get Flutering Feeling Around Chest And Had 1 Major Episode When I Felt My Heart Jumping All Over The Place What Prompted Me To Go Back To Doctor .
He Gave Me A Ecg That Come Back Fine And Also Some Bloods Done He Checked My Creatine Levels Because When I Was 11 I Had Renal Falire Due To Strep Infection Im 26 Now But Creatine Was Ok I Notice After Drinking The Next Day Breathing Is Harder Then Ever And I Cant Pass Urine For About 28 Hours Even Though Drinking Water Because Of Dehydration But Creatine Must Rule Out Kidneys Right?.
My Flutering In Cheast Seemed To Disapear In A Couple Of Days And Didint Get Any More Palpatations I Seemed To Get Better For While But Then The Breathing Would Come Back I Would Have Dizzy Spells And Have Ocasional Little Sharp Pains Left Side Of Chest.
My Doctor Now Says Its Asthma Even Though He Cant Hear It In My Chest Gave Me In Asthma Inhaler That Has Little If Any Effect.
When I Do Feel I Cant Breath I Dont Panic At All I Stay Carme And Just Ride It Out Because I Now Its Dangerous To Panic.
Im Not Scared Of Dyeing But Im Scared To Leave My Kids Alone Without A Father In This Cold World No Doctor Will Listen To Me Im 6ft 108 Kgs Of Athletic Build I Should Be Healthy. I Only Posted Because Last Two Weeks Have Been ***l Short Of Breath A Lot Some Times Wake Up Middle Of Night Out Of Breth In Mornings Feel Dizzy And Deprived Of Oxegen Also Fellt A Cool Burning On Left Side Of Chest This Week.
I Have A Theory Though And Would Like To Share It,ive Got A Wisdem Tooth That Seems To Be Dead And Used To Cause A Lot Of Pain It Has Eroded Instead Of Falling Out And Is Quite Rottin It Would Be A Perfect Breading Place For Bacteria And A Good Place To Enter Blood Stream Could I Have Endocarditis?
Also Noticed When First Got Sick I Had Boils Popping Out Of No Wear Like Staf Was In Blood Any Way Would Be Gratefull For Any Feed Back Sory Post Was So Long God Bless.

  • I have exactly the same thing happening to me and the doctor says im fine but i dont feel it. Though all the symptoms lead to anxiety or panic attacks so if your stressed that may be whats wrong with you.

  • This article is about infection after wisdom teeth have been removed, so I would guess the same kind of infection would result if you didn't have them removed. Infection following the extraction of wisdom teeth is not a common complication. Natural immune mechanisms help to protect the surgical site. Any infection, however, should be taken seriously and reported to the oral surgeon. Signs of infection include fever above 100 degrees, abnormal swelling, pain or prolonged bad taste, with or without evidence of discharge from the surgical site. Infections if they occur are usually minor, but they can lead to more serious infections of cellulitis, endocarditis, and brain, liver or heart abscesses. Endocarditis is a rare, life-threatening inflammation of the lining of the heart muscle and its valves. It is caused by a bacterial infection. Although endocarditis can occur in anyone, it is more common in people who have heart valve disease (like mitral valve prolapse), have had heart valve replacement surgery, have a congenital heart defect, have had recent heart surgery, or who are intravenous (IV) drug abusers.Dental procedures can trigger endocarditis, especially in susceptible individuals. Bacteria found in tooth plaque are the source of the inflammation of the heart muscle lining and valves.Bacteria in tooth plaque build up and cause gingivitis ( gum disease), which if left untreated, proceeds to periodontitis. The gums become inflamed (red and swollen) and often easily bleed during tooth brushing, flossing, or certain dental procedures. When gums bleed, the bacteria enter the bloodstream and potentially infect other areas of the body -- in the case of endocarditis, the inner lining of the heart and its valves. Hope this helps.
