I'm 25, male, I've always been healthy until the last 2 months, since the first "attack" I have stopped smoking, drinking, pretty much everything, I was having chest pains, trouble breathing, pain under my ribs on both sides, lump in my throat, it was hell, went to 6 different doctors, had ct scans, x rays, labs, all found nothing. Finally got sent to an ENT doc who discovered I had GERD, it had gotten into my lungs, voice box, and mouth, basically inflamed everything, gave me asthma, chondritis, swollen gums... he gave me methylprednisone, hydrocortisone, protonix, and I've had ativan for anxiety. It's been a week since then and the GERD has calmed down, only now I keep getting these sharp stabbing pains all over my body, mostly in my left arm, like burning hot needles, and it's constant, it never stops. My heart keeps fluttering and giving me slight pains, it still hurts under my ribs on both sides, yesterday I went to the er because the pain was just so intense I couldn't stop crying, I'm a veteran, I've been through some rough stuff but I've never experienced that level of pain before. I just don't know what to do, the only thing they found in the er was a potassium level of 3.2, that's it. Kidneys were fine, nothing else in labs... they gave me an iv, potassium, and tramadole for pain. It helped to an extent, enough that the lack of sleep caught up with me and I started to doze off, but every time I started to doze off, the vitals machine would go off saying my heart rate was hitting 36-44 bpm and my blood pressure got down to 92/52. Yet doc told me i was fine and that if i was dozing then i didn't need to be there. After waking up today I felt drained, tired, like I didn't really sleep. Only to have the pains slowly coming back, it hurts so bad I can hardly think straight. I'm going to make an appointment to get tested for lupus and MS, but if this keeps up, I just don't know how much more I can take... all the doctors can tell me is that I have anxiety, I already know that, I've lost 28 pounds and now weigh 160, my mother is now basically caring for me since I'm struggling to even walk some times, I've tried to exercise only to end up with a heart rate of 160+ and on the ground struggling just to breathe or to stand back up... I've never posted about my problems before but no one seems able to help me and I'm just scared, any help is appreciated. Thank you for reading this and I'm sorry if it's a mess.
