Pressure on left side of chest, left middle back, and others
New to the forums and I actually registered to ask this question. Usually I'd just go to the doctor, but sadly I lost my job recently and fell into the hole of many other Americans with no health insurance. History on me:
-25 year old Male
-Diagnosed with high cholesterol. So much so I am only 10/mg Crestor daily
-I have bad allergies and living in Florida doesn't help. I take Allegra to relieve it and nasal sprays
-I have asthma and take Primatine Mist as a rescue and Adavair as maintenance
-Casual smoker like an idiot, but I am working on quiting 100%
-Family history of bad hearts/heart attacks
-Currently have an injured rotatory cuff on my left shoulder from lifting weights
Recently I've been having these bouts of
-Pressure on the middle of my back on the left size. Feels like a lump is there currently.
-Shortness of breath
-A cough that produces mucus at times
-Hard to focus
-Run short on energy very easily
-At times it feels like it's beating so hard for no reason at all. I'm just sitting on the cough
-Current heart rate is 78 bpm
-Been getting weird cold sweats today for some reason
About 2 months ago I had something similar to this which led to a, what I thought was, a heart attack. I went to the ER and they said it was a panic attack. I had EKG, xrays, sonogram, and then a stress test done - all which were normal.
The weird part is this time these symptoms have been lasting 2 straight days now. What gives? Ideas?
