And now i sometimes have blured vision.....is there anyone else out there that had similar problems or know of any kind of illness that the above test would not pick it up? need some serious help!

I suggest seeing a cardiologist. I worked in Medicine for almost 20 years and recently experienced a woman who had "anxiety" for years with similar symptoms.She was placed on a mobile telemetry unit, CardioNet, and it turned out that her "panic attacks" were tachycardia. If you experience the symptoms every day a Holter monitor will also be useful, but I would be wary of old fashioned "event monitors" where you have to press the buttom with symptoms bc they miss a lot. Hope it helps

  • Good idea with Holter. I recommend eating a diet rich in magnesium, plus vitamins E and B, especially B6, Zinc, Iron, Calcium ... And how old are you?

  • After 12 yrs of having the other issue, the new one may not be related to it. This probably isnt it at all but im wondering if you have been tested for diabetes ... diabetes can cause numbness, nerve damage, tiredness, dizziness and headaches.
