I am a 41 year old (overweight) female who neglects going to local doctor as regularly as I should as I don't want to be labelled hypochondriac. The facts are I am constantly tired and stressed (normal I know in modern life), I have vague pain under my right side ribcage that comes and goes everyday, heart palpitations every now and again and the type of chest pain/tightness twice recently that has stopped me in my tracks and taken my breath away. I also am always hot - sweaty feeling (scared of the summer months because of this), have dry mouth - very thirsty and past month am experiencing pins and needles mainly down left arm which is getting much worse (some days almost constant). I ache all over a lot of the time and my skin has dried out something chronic. I also am very itchy under armpits and in groin area. Believe me, I couldn't make this stuff up and don't have the time to perservere with doctors as work fulltime and am single mum. Can anyone shed light on whether it all comes down to stress or advise on the things I should ask local doctor. Much appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
