a little history about me...
Im 25 years old, very very active guy, worked out 5 -6 days a week, 2 hours a day, hardcore weightlifting as in squatting 400 pounds, benching 350 and deadlifitng 415..and cardio and sauna sessions, diet would be clean during the week and a lil dirty on the weekend as my reward
along with my workouts i would take supplements as preworkout and creatine and protein..alot of caffeine
my last physical was 2015..everything was normal minus cholesterol. Everything healthy MINUS Cholesterol, it was slighty high so i changed up my workout routine where i incorprwted alot of cardio, and lost alot of fat..havent checked it yet
anxiety started august 2015 after i was layed off work...i stressed out due to having to pay my bills and no job
started with symptoms of shortness of breath and chest pain..Minor panic attacks..i actually remember seeing my blood pressure and it started my panic attack..for me it was all new so it was very tortoirous and scary..it messed up with my head so much that there was a period of time that i slept in my car outside the hospital because i felt safe there in case anything happened..
During that period i went to the e.r three times for shortness of breath and once for chest pain..all was new to me..everythings came back normal ( chest x ray, blood tests, ekg..was preceibed xanax as needed by er doctor..said it was anxiety
primary doctor checked me..stated it was anxiety..also prescribed me xanax as needed and refered me to psyciatrist..
psyciatrist wasnted to start me on treatment but i declined ..teventually i was able to mentally get through it after i believe 3-4 months of torture..wat motivated me was my girlfriend at the time..
after that i had a completelt normal life where you could say i beat anxiety...until it came back on september of this year 2017
before i continue heres a little bout my work life.since 2015 until october of this year 2017 i was working alot of graveyeard shifts..sometimes period of time where i would work two full time jobs graveyard and during the day with about 3 hours of sleep a day..alot and alot of stressful situations as well..
september is when little by little i would feel wierd mino minor minor diziness..wouldnt really pay attention to it..little by little day after day it started getting worse..to the point where it would be accompanied with feeling out of it, derealization, feeling like wanting to pass out, wobbly legs, heavy eye lids..shortness of breath, thats when i researched and found this website..saw alot of people who had the exact symptoms so i assumed it was anxiety related since i had it before..
didnt go to work for 1 week from how scared i was
went to the hospital october 10, everything came back normal, blood work and ekg normal
symptoms would vary by day..derealization seemed to dimish a bit but diziness is still there, feeling of wanting to faint comes and goes depending day, and occasional foot pain, feels consticted sometimes, and occasional blood pressure spikes..some days would be easyyy with almost no symptoms and the next day would be torture..each day varied
i was starting to finally manage it a bit since i got rid of some stressors when another stressful event happened involving my dad( i was there in hospital with him when they diagnosed him with infection in bone) , this was last friday
I felt the tension and stress just take over my body when i heard those news and seeing my dads face
since then i would get random bp spiked and diziness worsened
went to hospital monday of this week
Everything came back normal, ekg, chest x ray, blood test, urine test, ultrasound of organs and blood vessels and arteries,
my blood pressure hasnt been spiking as much anymore since my dad looks better and is taking the news better..
but thursday i woke up with chest pain..all day,
and today as well
came to er..they stated chest xray, ekg and blood work all came back normal, all they gave me was motrin due to chest cavity pain
next tuesday i have an appintment for a full physical with my primary doctor and wensday with my eye doctor
and now it is present day..
im assuming what im going through is stress / anxiety related..its been a very rough month with these new symptoms..ever since these new symptoms hit i completly stopped workong out, my diet has gone downhill, appetite has gone down, my motivation has been my wife since she gets hurt seeing me go through this..ive seen how much it has affected her so i scheduled a consult with a psyciatrist to see what treatments there is..ive been dealing this naturally but its a hard road especially with diziness symptoms..
thanks for reading guys
