For 8 months now I have been home from school trying to figure out what in the world is going on with me. I have had chest pain/tightness, light headedness, shortness of breath, a constant brain fog/forgetfulness, unable to work out anymore, and just an overall feeling of feeling sick. I was playing football for CWU and was in pretty darn good shape until this crap started. It has literally ruined my life. I now cannot even stand on my feet for more than a half hour, i'm constantly having anxiety that will not go away it stressed me out so bad. Some test i've had done are... MRI of head, Stress Test, Echocardiagram, Lots of blood work, CT scan of stomach and chest, endoscopy, and barium swall0w. All has come back normal so i have been trying to work and do as much as i can, but i simply cannot do it anymore!. Please someone write back so i can know some suggestions that i can talk to my doctors about. I'm sick of going to the ER's and feeling like this

Re: Undiagnosis

These symptoms, including the anxiety, can occur in hyperthryoidism. I would make sure your thyroid levels were checked when you had blood tests done. They are not always included in routine testing. Excess thyroid can also cause sweating, fast pulse, insomnia, diarrhea and weight loss, thirst, and a general jittery feeling like you've had too much coffee. If you have it, it is treatable. It is also called Graves disease. I would get a copy of your test results, and get thyroid done if hasn't been done yet.

Re: Undiagnosis

Greetings Taylojos Welcome to the Heart Disorder Healthboards! My sympathies. Something I might test for because of the brain fog and chest tightness is the Candida Albicans. This can be done with a Candida Albicans blood antibody titre. Candida Albicans might be implicated to some extent in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia which causes muscle pain.

It did sound in the beginning of the post like heart valve damage but an echocardiogram I thought would have ruled that out. Perhaps I am mistaken. Weight lifting does often damage young men's heart valves at an early age so in my opinion it might be better to do daily walks.

I would avoid refined added sugar like the plague since it can cause anxiety, clog the system, feed candida, and cause panic attacks. Peace sjb
