Hi all Please forgive me if i much this up but you know what fibro-fog is like so please bear with me.
Ok lets start at the beginning, about 20 months ago I was sitting down watching TV when all of a sudden i had several sharp pains just to the left of my centre chest and then they stopped but i was left feeling weak and was sweating a lot, this happened a few more times over the next few hours each time it felt worse and the length of the attack was longer and now with breathlessness so thought i was about to have a heart attack and dialled 999, the paramedics thought i was having a HA as well so was most confused by the time i got to hospital all was well again with me, i didn't have another attack that day, and my blood results to see if i had had a Heart attack was negative.
Ok since then i have had 100's of these attacks, sometimes i just feel a thud in my chest and break out in to a sweat for a few minutes then all settles down again, Other times its just shear hell. and goes on for hours once after the other, I get 5 or 6 stabbing pains always in the same place, nearly always within rhythm of my heart beat and then i break out in a sweat can start feeling sick and a crushing/tightness in my chest, in the past 20+ months ive felt like i was about to die 30 or so times " sorry im really not being dramatic here " it really does make me feel very unwell, and the fatigue after these attacks is on a new level from the fibro fatigue.
I've had 3 lots of the blood test to see if it was a heart attack and each time it has come back negative, i had a Cat scan last month which should i have up to a 70% blocked LAD, but the heart dr does not feel that should be giving me my symptoms, I've also had a 48 hour holter which showed a few missed beats but nothing more And my blood pressure will go up to 165/111 which i know is not massively high but still higher then normal for me and only goes up during an attack once the attack is over my pulse rate and BP goes back to normal, during these attacks my pulse would raise 120+.
We cannot find anything that triggers these attacks, sometimes i can go 2 or 3 weeks with out any issues and then all of a sudden "like now" im just having one attack after another.
I'm really at the end of my tether and need to get on top of this now, been so long and its taking a massive toll on myself and my family as we never know how im going to be from one second to the next.
No doubt ive missed something out but the post is getting longer then i wished it to be im just desperate now. Please if you have made it this far and have questions fire away.
