Hi my name is David i'm a 22 yr od male from East London UK, i' a non-smoker and one day a week drinker, usually fit as i usually go gym and play soccer only been restricted over the last year due to my symptoms.
about 3 or 4 years ago i started getting tenderness in the centre upper/right abdominal region of my body, it sometimes feels bloated and is painful when touched, i went to my doctor who put me on a proton pump medication and done numerous blood tests on my stomach in which everything came back fine and the medication didn't make a difference, so i left it as it wasn't bothering that much and wasn't stopping me doing anything.
in May 2008 i started getting more symptoms i noticed whilst doing a maitenance night shift in which i'm unsure whether they are or not linked to the problem above they are: Headaches(light headedness & dizziness although not as common), Shortness of breath(restricted feeling in and around rib cage area), Heart Rhythms(palpitations, rapid beat especially with exertion, sometimes feels like beating out of chest), back ache between shoulder blades that radiates through to chest, constant blocked nose( usually only one nostril in which it switches sides, sometimes bleeds) Fatigue and weakness, although i've always been a bad sleeper.
i've had a chest x-ray and upper abdominal US all coming back fine ruling out lungs, heart, pancreas, gallbladder, spleen, liver, kidneys everything in that area, also had amylase, calcium, complete blood count, creatinine, c-reactive protein, electrolytes, ferritin, glucose random, ICP, iron, liver function tests, phosphate blood tests in which all came back fine and normal aswell, blood pressure is fine and when at rest heart beat is usually around 60-70 bpm.
i'm hoping someone can give me some help as i've been trying to self-diagnose myself as the doctors seemed to have give up, this is really starting to affect my quality of life and just want some closure on what's wrong with me, please help so i can finally put my mind at rest, it would be much appreciated thanx.
