I just turned 25 and have a 2 year old. I have been sick for going on 3 years now. Tonight I went to the fire department at 5:30 in the morning because I thought I was having a heart attack (Chest pain, shortness of breath, Chest Tight & for the first time ever pain in my left arm). They said I was fine other than an elevated Heart Rate. I was so embarrassed that I got them up at that time of the morning and once again I felt like I was crazyI have seen a Stomach specialist, OBGYN and my family doctor. They say it could be IBS, or reflux or endometriosis and prescribe medicines (It never helps). I have spent more money on tests & lab results than most spend in their lifetime. Please HELP ME! Here are my symptoms: Shortness of Breath, Chest tightness & Chest pain, My heart feels like it is going 90 miles an hour, Severe upper & lower abdominal pain on left & right sides, severe nausea, Bloating, Constipation or Diarrhea (Always one or the other!) Unpredictable & very painful Menstrual Cycles (Sometimes 3 weeks out of a month or at times none at all), Sometimes it hurts during/after sex. These symptoms come and go and will last from anywhere to a few days to months at a time. Nothing triggers these symptoms and I have notice that frequently the abdominal pain & chest symptoms including shortness of breath will occur at or around the same time. I am desperate and out of money & honestly loosing faith in doctors all together. I know I am not crazy, but when you have one physician after another tell you they don't know what is wrong or guess and hope they are right it is a very scary & uneasy feeling. I feel like I am never going to get better! If anyone has any ideas I will be forever thankful!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
