  • First go to an endocrinologist and get your hormone levels checked out; especially need to check out the function of the thyroid, pituatary, parathyroid, and adrenal glands. You should also ask the dr to screen for porphyria as you are having chest pain and anxiety.... you probably don't have it but you should be screened for it anyway just to be safe.;) UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuEnd Greenhouse Emissions Now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLhNkbAubfY&feature=related

  • It sounds like it could be Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome. MVP itself is not usually dangerous, and is common, but some medical professionals believe that the autonomic nervous system can cause the person with MVPS to have symptoms similar to what you have experienced. Another term that is associated with MVPS is Dysautonomia. Here is some information, which also seems to doubt the existence of MVPS:http://heartdisease.about.com/library/weekly/aa073100b.htm

  • Look for the closest place to get this test (do an Internet search):Electron beam tomography angiography (ebta) It picks up what the other heart test miss, but your insurance may or may not cover it.
