I have: former back sugery for broken back over 10 years ago, four years of chest pain that radiates, sweating, swelling of joints (knees and hands) that happens every couple of months, cp will wake up up and night, since dec. SOB at times. In december I became very ill: dehydrated, N/V, bad chest pain. Doc said I have Dilated Cardiomyopathy, CHF, devils grip, psuedogout. NOTHING the three different docs have done have made a difference from medications to resting to a therapy with mast pants. My cholesterol they say is good. EKG's they say show nothing out of ordinary. my BP goes up and down, no odd rythems. stress tests they say are ok. I have had a stress test at least twice a year for four years. They say I am pumping at 40 to 45 percent. They said I have one narrow artery but can't give me a cause for it.

I am a former MMA fighter, former firefighter, white male, age 53.

anyone have suggestions I am getting tire of being poked and prodded with no results
