tachycardia, arhythmia, chest pain, hypetension symptoms
Hello, I am 30 y.o. male
I have a long history of disorders, I'll make a timeline so it can be as detailed as possible.
-Past few years I was diagnosed that I have high BP. I never went for a checkup.
-Last April, I had severe tachycardia which lasted for more than 20 hours (sleep didn't stop it). Going to a health center they found I had hypertension and they gave me pills. I was fine after the pills.
-For the tachycardia I also visited a cardio. I had an ECG and an echo. There was nothing wrong at my heart as he said. he said there is no need for any medication, and that high bp could be a result of stress.
-Last May (a month after I visited the cardio), I had light pain on my heart area in the chest, and light tachycardia. I went straight to the hospital which I stayed there for 3 days. I also did all possible tests, ECG, echo, plus the treadmill test, they had the cables on me 24hours. The doctors said nothing is wrong with my heart, they let me go.
-During the summer, I also felt pain on my heart area, a severe arhythmia, and shortness of breath. I had the feeling that I was about to pass out.
-The past months, I am complaining of stronger chest pain, now I also have arm numbness, and when I lay down for sleep I feel strong arhythmia which have the feeling that the heart stops and I feel light headed and light at the chest area, like there is no blood going through.
-I went back to the cardiologist a few days ago. He didn't examine me. I only had hypertension and he gave me pills to take (my first medication ever). He told me there is no reason since months ago I did all possible tests and I am healthy.
My questions are, what causes such symptoms if not the heart? Should I demand to take those heart tests again? I mean I took the tests months before, am I safe for some years now from heart problems? Could those tests diagnose future heart problems? I really want to rule out any heart symptoms.
thanks for reading and sorry for the long post
