hi i am a 20 year old female, for about a few years now i have felt constantly tired even after a good night sleep, accompanied with paleness (face) dizziness (almost constant) and lately my chest feels rather tight like i can't get a full breath with also heart palpitations. these symptoms seem to be getting worse and worse. any ideas as to what i could do to make this go away would be really appreciated.
thanks

  • Have you ever been diagnosed with asthma? Also, what is your height and weight? You may have sleep apnea which is contributing to this. Any history of cardiac disease in you or your family?

  • Describe your dizziness.Does it feel as if the room is moving or that you're being propelled in a certain direction?Or,is it just light-headedness?What's pale?Your palms,particularly the creases,your face,your nailbeds?
