When should I become worried about dizziness accompanied by slight squeezing pains? The pains are odd in nature. I only feel a bit of a squeezing pain under my arms and outer chest. The dizziness is mostly only present when I am standing up, goes away with sitting or laying down. Is this a reason to be concerned? I have been experiencing these symptoms for about 5 days now. Thanks for your help.
I am 37. For the past few months I have had both irregular heart beats and dizzy spells although not at the same time. I don't know if the two are related. The irregular heart beats can go from a few pounding to skipping to a few real fast and then back to normal. This happens any time of the day. The whooziness or dizzy spells come out of nowhere and I am so light headed I have to sit down and if I close my eyes, I have bed spins. This can go on for a few hours and then just stop. I don't know yet what brings it on. I had my blood drawn for iron, thyroid, glucose and an ekg. all while having the symptoms. All came out normal. What do you duggest it is?
Over the last 2 years, I have been experiencing severe dizziness when I run. I will make it about 20 to 40 minutes into the run before the symptoms start. I also get extremely nauseated. My blood pressure is usually around 150/90 and my cholesterol around 260. I am 52 years old and at the upper range of my suggested weight. The dizziness is so bad that I sometimes have to stop completely. I have no pain and do not feel breathless. If I continue to run or walk, I become unable to progress in a straight line. (I look like I'm intoxicated and feel very disoriented) The dizziness and nausea usually last 2 to 3 hours after I stop, but has sometimes lasted a day or two. My doc listened to my heart and said she heard a click murmur but the tech who did my echocardiogram said she saw no evidence of MVP. She said the doc probably misinterpreted a murmur because my pulse rate is very high and that can mimic a murmur. I do have a family history of heart disease and my 26 yr old daughter has been diagnosed with MVP.
Please help shed some light on this problem. I used to be very active and the lack of exercise is driving me crazy! Thanks.
