I am a 23 year old male. For about three weeks now I haven't been feeling myself. Mostly just tired, fatigued, but not other real symptoms.

Two days ago, I woke up and I was having heart palpitations every few minutes for the entire day, along with chest discomfort on the left side of my chest. It's hard to describe the discomfort, but I would say its similar to a pinching feeling in the heart.

Because of the palpitations and chest discomfort, I went to the ER since it was late and the doctors office was closed. At the ER, I had the following symptoms:

1.) Heart Palpitations
2.) Chest Pain
3.) Tiredness/Fatigue
4.) A Very White Tongue
5.) Pink & Cloudy Eyes
6.) Gums Receding Rapidly

Because of these symptoms, the ER doctor ran an EKG. He said it was perfectly normal. Additionally, blood work was done. My blood work came back clean. He thought it could have been diabetes, but tested negative. His conclusion was that he didn't know for sure, perhaps a viral infection, but he thought that dehydration could be playing a role. Drink plenty of water, and make a regular doctors appointment as soon as possible, he said.

Two days later, with tons of fluids and bed rest, I am no longer having heart palpations at this time. However, the other symptoms remain:

1.) Chest Pain (pinching feeling, heart area, fades in and out frequently)
2.) Tiredness/Fatigue
3.) A Very White Tongue
4.) Pink & Cloudy Eyes
5.) Gums Receding Rapidly

I have a doctor's appointment scheduled for Friday, but I would like to know what your opinion is on these symptoms. As far as medical history, I have tachycardia that has been treated and maintained comfortably for years with a low daily dosage of Tenormin.

As far as other factors, I started using a new toothpaste and mouthwash about a month ago - I don't know if that is relevant or not. Also, about a month ago I developed a yeast infection, jock itch in my groin. I self treated this with Lotrimin Jock Itch Spray, and it seems 90% better, but not completely cleared up. I also live in an old home, so mold could be a factor possibly. I haven't had any issues with anxiety, nor am I in any stressful conditions.

With my symptoms, what do you think the problem is?

Thanks so much.
