Ok, were to begin... I'm not sure of the exact day but sometime in March this year my life took a turn for the worse. I woke up in the middle of the night dizzy and short of breath shortly after my body began to shake, almost like i was having a panic attack.

This went on for a few weeks off and on, with the addition of eye problems. My pupil in my right eye became much larger then my left and i was getting double vision in that eye. I made a doctors appt. I have been sent for multiple tests blood work, MRI's, Xrays. nothing showed up.

So nearing the end of April i had a major "panic attack" (Before this i have never had on before) Passed out and ended up in the hospital and lost my job for calling off to many times, Along with now i am having trouble sleeping i'm never tired at night but sleep all day even if i stay up all night and day i still cannot fall asleep at night...

I have been to so many doctors allergists, ear nose and throat etc.. finally my family doctor put me on alprazolam, and sertraline. I have been on these since and they have helped.

But this past week 2 weeks before christmas my symptoms have been getting worse, with some new and very painful symptoms. I have been coughing up dark clots of blood from my lungs and have Extreme Pain in my right rib cage and right shoulder when i breathe, i cannot take a deep breath without pearcing pain...

Please help me I'm a 27yr Male and before all this i was a hard worker and loved being active....

(PS I'm sorry about my spelling I'm trying to type this quick)

I had an ultra sound and an xray of my side and lungs, the doctor said i had minor brusing of the muscles around my lungs but no explaination as to how it happened.I also went to a chiropractor and for a deep tissue massage. The pain subsided for about a day but now i'm back to were i was coughing up blood clots and extreme pain when breathing.On top of this my dizzyness and vision problems have been getting worse. I am still out of work so i have been trying to keep myself busy by working on my motorcycle and art.. the problem is I cannot concintrate for longer then 30 minutes before i start seeing spots and feel like i'm going to pass out.I don't know what else to do this sickness is ruining my life ..
