Hello, I'm a 43 year old man who became ill last year in October, I developed severe head pressure and palpitations which carried on for around 6 weeks, it seemed to be related to me catching a cold, my head felt like it was infected, swimming sensations and I became tired and weak. Everytime I move my heart rate increases and my heart palpitates and I have a feeling of being really unwell. I thought it was my immune system and that it was the cold doing it to me because i couldnt fight it so went and had a t-cell count and HIV test along with all the other STDs and everything came back negative. I got well but soon as the cold season came round this year and I came into contact with my girlfriend who caught a cold it all started again. Its been 2 weeks now and my symtoms are getting worse, the pressure in my head is constant and my eyes hurt, the palpitations come and go through the day but I dont have any cold type symtoms like runny nose or congestion, I have developed several patches of dermatitus on my legs and waist which itches like mad and I think its somehow related. My doctor just wont listen at all because she thinks its anxiety but she is soooo wrong, I know what it feels like to be anxious and although I do get anxious at times its the illness causing anxiety not the other way round. I know that I will get over this in about a month but I dont want to be going through this every year and the pressure on my heart cant be good at my age. What would cause this, its driving me mad trying to find out what is wrong with me and its destroying my life because i just cant function, I cant get warm and feel like I'm dying yet no one will listen.:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
