you can skip to the last paragraph if you dont want to know my history...
Last year, I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation after going to the hospital emergency room. After they put me on lopressor (beta blocker) for a month or so, and after plenty of tests (echocardiogram, tons of ekgs, and a houlter monitor, and recently a stress test) the cardiologist found nothing wrong with me and just told me to watch the caffeine and to loose weight.
In march 2007, I had gotten sick from what i think was a normal cold, and got better a few days later. I have started going to a gym, and have done heavy treadmill and upper body workouts many nights a week. Around april 20th, I got this like numbness or pain around my left breast area, and after a few days of it not going away, I went to the hospital ER, where they did a CBC and ekgs and determined it not to be heart related. Days went by and a week or so later, with the symptoms not going away, i started having bad headaches and tiredness. no matter what i did i could not get rid of the tiredness. I went to the ER again due to the development of the new symptoms and once again after tests were done they determined it not to be cardiac. I saw my cardiologist who firmly believes there is nothing wrong with my heart.
Now its a week later and im still not better. I have headaches, dizziness, weight loss, and am tired all the time, but not much of a runny nose nor a fever. I now get heart palpitations every once and a while. cold medicine helps a little though i do not know if its like a placebo effect. based on research online, i think it can be an infection, lyme disease, or encephalitis, but then again the chest pain makes me think its a worsening arterial aneurism or dissection that is causing the headaches, chest pain and dizziness. Im a 24 y/o overweight male, with medical bills since I do not have health insurance. I do not know what to do! please help!
