Just to start off with, the menapause have been ruled out!!
The last few weeks i havent been feeling well, suffering with a slight pain in my chest, more irritable as it feels like my heart is racing, i can feel my heart is beating in the middle of my chest, and i have to open my mouth as to let it out, its the only way to explain and when i talk i have to catch my breath half way through a sentance, just made an appointment with the doctor but i cant see him for a week. the other symptoms that i have occured in the last few weeks are cold flushes or cold shivers, i have been suffering with hot flushes for many years as i have an illness (Crohn's Disease), but the cold ones have started to happen when im awake in bed instead of asleep, and feels like i have to shiver really bad all through the night and its keeping me awake, the next day feels like i have done 100 sit ups as it feels like shivering all through the night has tensed my muscles all day. it would be nice if someone could reply as this is starting to stress me out and giving me slight panic attacks, which is making the symptoms worse, so i would like my mind at ease. :D
