Possibly my blood causing problems?
I haven't had any help from doctors so I am hoping someone here can help point me in the right direction. I have had EKGs, an ultrasound and blood work done. Everything is normal. The only thing unusual I have been told were by nurses who said I had thick blood (after trying to draw it out) and that I have a low heart rate. And I feel like that is linked to my condition.
For the past year and a half I have been experiencing heart problems where it will beat extremely hard. At times it will get so bad that I cannot move fast or sometimes hardly at all without it getting worse. I feel like I could have a heart attack when it happens. I cannot sleep because it gets much worse when I lay down. Also It seems to act up after eating fatty foods but not always.
Other symptoms are a tight or pinching feeling in the chest. Sometimes I will get a pinching or funny feeling in other parts of my body such as my legs or head. The past couple of weeks I have been getting a tight pain in my right arm, especially when I lay down or at work. There is also a rash there but I believe it's unrelated and the skin isn't what is causing the pain.
I believe I possibly may have had a stroke too. One day I woke up without feeling in half my face. When I smiled only one half would move. It lasted the whole day or so. I didn't go to the doctor to see what it was from. But it was after a bad night of the heart issues.
Some other things I am experiencing but am not sure if it is related or not are.... chronic fatigue, I do not know what's causing it but I have always been like this and it's getting worse, itchy, dry, flaky skin, PCOS and difficulties sleeping at night.
Anyone have any ideas? And what type of doctor should I be seeing? A cardio? I can't seem to find any good ones. The last one is an internal doctor and thinks it's from dust/pollen allergies which seems ridiculous to me since allergies seldom bother me. She tells me it's palpitations which I know what feels like and it's not that. I am only 27.
