Hello Everyone, I am hopefully looking for some direction, any help would be appreciated. I am a 52 year old male in generally good health, don't smoke, eat well and exercise. About 2 years ago while taking a shower my heart began racing and I felt nauseous. It subsequently got worse and I was rushed to the hospital. The doctors could find nothing wrong with my heart, blood, lungs, or anything else, so they sent me home with a prescription of metoprolol to reduce the fast heart rate. Long story short, saw over a dozen different doctors and none has an answer: Here are my symptoms: Muscle and joint pain (fibro was ruled out), the muscle pain is only in my chest and biceps, the sides of the neck, as well as sides of ribcage, a hoarse voice, tenderness and slight pain in the lower part of the jaw (where the saliva glands are), tired much of the day, a feeling of "congestion" in the throat area. Also have some slight dizziness. I feel much worse in the morning ,and when the symptoms act up I feel a flu-like sickness and it is usually accompanied by a fast heart rate. Anything I do which is fairly even mildly exerting is met with a serious increase in the symptoms, I barely can walk a flight of stairs, I usually end up with a racing heart, naseua and extreme weakness I feel best laying down, in bed or on a couch. Thanks for any input.
