First time posting so please forgive any oversights
About a week before Christmas I was at work (in a typical IT office) with a headache and took two paracetamol extra (paracetamol with caffeine) for it. Nothing unusual as though I don't drink tea or coffee, I do drink energy drinks and have taken these pills before.
However about 20 mins later my heart started pounding, I got really hot and dizzy, and struggled to breathe - in short, I suffered an anxiety attack for the first time in my life. It freaked the hell out of me. After about an hour my heart was still racing so I went to a local free-clinic to get myself checked. The nurses there took my blood pressure, did an ECG test, listened to my heart and did a blood-sugar test as well. When I first arrived my heart was at129bpm despite my sitting prefectly still. My oxygen levels, blood pressure and sugar level were fine though and as my pulse gradually calmed down during the 40 mins or so I spent with them, in the end they sent me on my way and said to take it easy and rest up.
I thought that would be it, but since then I've experienced frequent symptoms that are starting to concern me. Most days at some point or other I've experienced some brief palpatations and dizziness that passes after a minute or two. More annoyingly is that on a few occasions over the last two weeks I've had a really sharp sudden pain in the right side of my chest, with tightness making it hard and painful to breathe (it is what I would imagine a collapsed lung to feel like). Again though, after 5-10 mins this has passed too. Otherwise in general I've felt quite tired, despite it being a fairly relaxed Christmas.
I'm 28 and in good health (I think). I'm not exactly a couch potato and according to my Wii Fit I'm a bit underweight.
Basically what I'm asking is should I go and see my GP and tell them all this? I've found them to be pretty dismissive in the past and don't want to waste half-a-day for them to tell me I'm fine.
Thanks for reading this,
