Ahhhh where to begin....... basically I have been unwell since June. Heart palpitations, severe shortness of breath, dizziness, exhaustion, rapid heart rate, sickness etc ALL the time. It has gradually got worse to the point I am feeling horrendous. Had several blood tests for everything under the sun, had ECG, 24 hour ECG, ultrasound of heart everything. The 24 hour ECG has picked up I do suffer from Tachacardia and did pick up several palpitations so I am having a 7 day holter fitted next week to monitor it further.
I have seen at least 7 different GP's, been in A&E 3 times, been to out of hours twice, under the care of a cardiologists and everyone has the same opinion it is anxiety. The thing is.... I DON'T FEEL ANXIOUS!!!! I am only anxious about feeling unwell to the point I don't want to move from bed, I don't leave the house, I am missing work etc. I am convinced I have something terminal that will kill me and it just isn't being picked up on.
I shake all the time. I am sick every morning/night and have been for the past 3 weeks. I suffer from indigestion too. I am at a loss. I have no idea what is happening to me and it is taking over my life. It isn't a panic attack that comes and goes... it is a constant feeling that tends to intensify at certain times ie before bed etc.
Is anyone experiencing this? To this extreme? Should I be asking for an MRI scan? Honestly I am so sad about it all. I am on citalopram and Antenolol for anxiety and palpitations as Dr unwilling to refer me until I have tried Citalopram.
Any help would be really appreciated.
