I am a 32 year old female, slightly underweight, no known diseases. I was diagnosed 5 years ago with fibromyalgia with symptoms of pain, fatigue, etc. for 5 years, i got worse and worse and worse, but my lab tests always came back normal.
3 months ago, i convinced my doctor to try again, and this time my c3/c4 complement came back low, my leukocytes and monocytes were low, as was my alkaline phosphotase. my vitamin d was low as well. my ANA came back negative. his response was to put me on vitamin d and try the labs again at the end of 4 months.
for the last 6 weeks, i've had sharp chest pains that come and go. sometimes they spread down my right arm. nothing specific seems to trigger them. i also have episodes where my heart races (160 bmp+) and/or it feels as if it is beating out of chest. when that happens, i feel lightheaded and breathless. i have fainted twice. i tried going to the hospital, but, without running one test, the doctor decided i was having a panic attack. keep in mind, i was the calmest person in the room. my ankles and feet swell, and most of the toes are now permanently a dusky shade of purple.
