Don't know what's wrong. I feel like I'm going to collapse and die. I get palpitations, shortness of breath, pinches in the chest area. I also get pins and needles sensations in my head and I get muscles twitches. Mostly in my face, cheek and next to my eye. I have been to hospital and doctors. I have had blood tests, urine and stool samples. I've had ecg which was slightly abnormal. Mri scan of heart, echocardiogram, chest X-Rays but all came back negative. Got a holter monitor for 24hrs. Slight palpitations but apparently nothing of major concern. But, why do I keep feeling that there is something wrong with me? Is it in my head? Every twitch or slight pain has me panicking and feeling like I'm going to drop dead. I'm at my wits end and don't know what to do
