Hello. I was wondering if any of you out there could help. Over the last year I have had upper right abdominal pain right under my ribcage and it has gone from there to my right flank side and under the area of both breasts to where I can't stand to even wear a bra. I have a feeling of fullness most of the time even though I don't eat much, with symptoms like GERD. I feel bloated and nauseated most of the time. I have gained a little weight but under 8 lbs. The pain is constant and sometimes stabbing. It wakes me up at night and nothing I have done has helped. The doctors thought it was my gall bladder at first... I had a CT scan, ultrasound, hydascan, xrays, UGI, endoscopy and colonoscopy and they have found nothing. It was pretty bad for a while then had let up for the past 3 months. Now it's coming back.
Also about 8 months after having those symptoms I started feeling lightheaded and having periods where I would pass out for a few seconds. I would sometimes wake up with my heart racing and sweating. I thought it was possible anxiety. I had episodes a few times where I would just start to feel weird and out of sorts, weak, dizzy, hot and sweaty, nauseated. I have a high rate of heart disease in my family and since I am 39 they decided to do some tests because I have been having chest pain also. I had a nuclear stress test and echocardiogram and they found nothing. My resting heart rate was in the 130's. I wore a monitor for a month and saw a cardiologist that perscribed Metropolol Tart for my rapid heart rate because after yet another bunch of tests they told me that I have POTS( Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). Although for the most part my heart rate is in the 90-110 range now I still have the chest pain. It is not severe, but just enough to know it's there.
If there is anyone out there who may know a doctor, test, diet, any information that you may have that may help or if you have any symptoms like this I would love to hear from you. Thanks so much for your time.
