Worry about problems with sharp pain around my heart, my ears and my head
Hello

I am a 52 year old male. Three months ago when I was playing guitar. I felt fall dawn,  after I felt hot flush and my hands began to sweat. I never lost my conscience. When I finished the song, I drink water. It helped me. Two day after, when I was teaching my Math class, I felt dizzy. I visited the nurse of my school : my blood pressure was little high. The same sentation I felt four days after. During that week, I feelt a strang sentation in the back of my ears. I dont have insurance, but I visited the doctor: the cholesterol was little high: 218. Trglic: 356 . TSH : 10. I visited the cardiologist : Ecocardiogram was fine, the doppler carot. was fine. The doctor ordered medicine  triglide and vytorine.After that I changed my diet. I really worked. I have been  relative better. I have done a little sport like play soccer and basquetball.  

   Now  I have been  experiencing frequent sharp pain chest around  my heart. Some times I drink water each after each sharp pain,  it helps me with realese gas. These sharp pain are more frequen when I play guitar, or when I am using the computer. Some times when I swallow, I feel a pain in the middle of my chest and when  speak by long time, I need to rest to help my breathing. Now my colesterol is 135. The problem is, now im so nervous. The sharp pain comes and goes and doesn't last long. Sometimes this  sharp pain causes a sharp pain in my head and  I get nervous. I'm starting to have a hard time at work because I'm afraid something is wrong, and I am a teacher and play guitar. Please help if anyone has any ideas. thanks

Sharp pain is not normally associated with cardiac pain I have heard. It tends to be caused from GERDS/heartburn or a muscular thing. That said, I experience it myself from time to time-the last two nights for example. I don't know if it is GERDS or muscular but I took 2 TUMS and an alleve and it went away. ???  Wish I could be a more help.

I agree that it is probably not cardiac in nature and sounds like GERD.  However, if your TSH is really 10, that is way too high and indicates hypOthyroidism.  You need to see a doctor.  Hypothyroidism can cause a number of non specific complaints, but usually can be dealt with fairly easily.
