I have been feeling ill for the past 3 weeks. I have had upper chest pain in the left area like sharp cramps. I wake up every morning a around the same time withm stomach rumbling and I switch from side to side and It grumbles very loud. I have a loss of appetite i get sometimes sharp pains in my left hand (I dont know if that has anything to do with it) I have been going under alot of stress lately. I get many head rushes when I get up from sitting and laying . I feel alot of presure in my neck. I get sharp headache like pains in my head in the back and on the sides. I get dizzy and when I eat I sometimes feel as if im going to faint. I feel like out of it almost all the time and I have a hard time not drifting off into space. I went to the hospital and I was told that I have anxiety MAYBE the Dr. said. This is soo urgent for me so please someone help me please. my email is cirkus_sorcerer@yahoo.com my life depends on it I feel like im goin to die. God bless I appreciate your time

  • Did this doctor give you a prescription for an anti-anxiety medication? If not, get one and try it. If that stops your symptoms, then you'll know. The other thing that occurs to me is that left-side pain in the chest, arm, and hand are symptoms of a heart attack. The head rushes, headaches, and dizziness could be symptoms of poor circulation, which in turn could be related to heart problems. Did this doctor even mention the possibility of heart problems?

  • No, I didn't mean that you were having a heart attack. What I meant was that some of your symptoms sounded like those of a heart attack, so I thought that at least part of your problem might be heart-related. Apparently your doctor thinks so too, if he gave you medication to slow your heart. How long have you been taking it? Has it made a difference?I would never have thought of labyrinthitis, but I just looked at the Wikipedia article about it (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labyrinthitis), and that actually does seem to fit your symptoms. What did your doctor say about treatment for that?

  • I went to the doctor today. He smiled when he saw me and was telling me it was all in my head. The headaches the chestpain and everything else. Im 21 by the way and well he was tellin me I was underweight which I knew already. He gave me some valium shot and also a vitamin B12 shot. He also prescribed me a medecine called alprazolam. He told me to take it when I feel nervous. He also gave me some vitamins. A Vitaplexplus tab (amide)Since I have no energy or appetite. I hope to god ifeel better perhaps the labyrnthitis is still present thats what causes my headaches who knows but today I feel kind of ok. I'll keep you updated thanks for your attention

Feels very close to my heart the pain is also in my back on the same position as on the front. please help dont know what this could be. Could it be severe?? the head pains make me feel dizzy all over because they spread sometimes. I always feel as if im in a dream most of the times like my mind drifts off into space. please help thank you!

  • When you mentioned about having moments where you feel "spaced out", I was wondering if you had ever been checked for seizures. Some type of mild seizures can produce similar symptoms. Also, since you are taking the medicine for your heart rate you should probably have an echo done of the heart to check for mitral valve prolapse. I have a high heart rate and I'm taking a beta blocker and my mitral and tricuspid valve show regurgitation on an echo. Just some other thoughts for you to consider. Wishing you the best:)
