I am male and 46 years old. I felt dizzy while walking at the night of April 6th, 2008. I had a kind of feeling of almost falling in a faint. In hospital, I was diagnosed to have the deformation of cervical vertebra which was likely to compress the carotid so as to cause insufficiency of blood supply to the brain. I was hospitalized to Xi’an Chinese Traditional Medicine Hospital. Acupuncture, suffocating, traction and massage to cervical vertebra were applied. The effect was not good. During the treatment, DCG and color ultrasound image found no abnormal functions of heart and blood vessels. From May, 2008 I felt tense and beating (mostly like ssaccade )at precordium.
Sometimes I felt chest distress, palpitation and dyspnoea. I have been to many hospitals for doctors, mainly from the departments of cardiology and neurology. I have taken many examinations including coronary artery 128 spiral CT, coronarography, exercise electrocardiogram etc and the results came out to be normal. In December, 2008, I went to the Gastroenterology Dept of The First Hospital of Xi’an Jiaotong University. Gastroscope found that I had minor reflux esophagitis. Through a half year of Chinese traditional medicine and western medicine treatments for reflux esophagitis, the symptoms above had not gone.
I have visited the Depts of Respiration, Neurology and Gastroenterology of Beijing Concord Hospital and the doctors found that everything was normal. I went to the Dept of Neurology of General Hospital of PLA (301 Hospital). The doctor thought that the symptoms were caused by long time anxiety, depression and somatization disorder. I took amitriptyline hydrochloride for three months and found no better. Then I stopped to take olanzapine and paroxetine hydrochloride for two months and also found no better.
From May,2008, I have felt tense at precordium (including neck). This tense migrates at chest. I have also felt muscle beating (mostly like ssaccade ) which also migrates around my body irregularly.
For my complaints above, I am sincerely hoping to get advices from any doctor who can help me. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
