So about two months ago I started having Asthma problems (it was out of the blue one night I couldn't breathe that well, i had the shakes, I vomited, and my heart was racing so I went to the ER) After that for the next week or so my heart was always racing and sometimes it skipped beats ( I got an x-ray on my lungs and heart and I even wore a 24 hour heart monitor everything turned out to be normal)... since maybe two weeks after that I've been really tired all the time, I've had head pains that occur almost entirely on the sides of my head and are a sharp pain, it isn't excruciating it is just really annoying and sort of hurts... My vision also changed, when I look around i see like little white dots and weird things that are hard to describe (I went to the optometrist got my pupils dilated and everything but he didn't notice anything wrong)
Also I have had difficulty swallowing, I can get down food and water it is just really annoying at times, and a couple times it has felt like my throat has actually closed up for a couple of seconds.

I have gone to the doctor numerous times for all my problems, but they keep saying "it is probably this just do this and it should get better" this never works.... any suggestions? I'm a mild hypochondriac and tend to worry about these things a lot.
