I'm a 25 year old female. For almost 2 years I've been going to my doctor for fatigue and palpatations and shortness of breath. Everytime I saw the doctor I was told it was becasue I was under too much stress or was having anxiety attacks. Tried anti-depressants.. didn't help. About a year ago I started getting rashes all over my stomach and chest, looks like red vitaligo (?) and it comes and goes in a matter of hours. Doctors said it wasn't hives. Then in late june of this year my lung collapsed. After I had a chest tube I was released but 4 days later it collapsed again. I had suregery to fix it and was told it was a spontaneous phemothorax and I would heal up. The cause of the collapsed lung was excess amounts of blebs. Everyday since the surgery I've felt worse. I'm still very tired all the time, the rash comes and goes, I can barely breath at all, and sometimes my heart feels like its going to jump out of my chest. Seems like I can nevr catch my breath. I'm on oxygen and inhalers but nothing seems to work. The doctors have run me through all the standard tests but can't figure out anything. I'm too young for all this, I've had to quit my job and I can barely play with my kids. Any advice would be so appreciated!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
