First-progesterone vgs 200
First-progesterone vgs 400 I am a 25 yr old male. Prior to having all these symptoms I was fairly active and in pretty decent shape. The symptoms I have had are I have been pretty fatigued (not overly fatigued as I can still do a lot of stuff, but haven't been able to work out), I have had some dizziness, I have also started to have some anxiety problems recently that I never had before (obviously due to not knowing what is going on). I get low grade headaches, but they usually don't start till later in the day. I have also been shown to have bradycardiaArrhythmias
Sick sinus syndrome. I had an EKGAtrioventricular block, ekg tracing
Exercise stress test where my pulseNeck pulse
Pulse - bounding
Pulse - weak or absent
Taking your carotid pulse was only 50, then I was put on a holterHolter monitor (24h) monitor and it got down to 32 over night. I had an ultrasound of my gallbladder, liver, and other organs in which they found my liver was enlargedEnlarged adenoids
Enlarged prostate. I went to a specialist for this, and since I didn't have any other liver symptoms and he couldn't feel it he thought this was nothing to worry about.
I went to a cardiologist and now I have a stress test and an echocardiogram coming up this week, then follow up appointments with an electrophysiologist and the cardiologist again. I have had blood work done twice in which both times they have said everything looked normal. I was unable to get a hold of these results and am not sure what all they even tested for. I know they said liver and kidney functions were normal.
Recently I went to the ER because on night I woke up and just didn't feel comfortable and then my heart starting going fast (prolly around 150). They didn't really do many tests because he said I had so many done already that he would just be redundant. He did give me ativan for anxiety because I think that was probably just an anxiety attack. I had no history of anxiety before this either. Today I was at a football game and towards the end it was exciting and I really starting feeling shaky and dizzy, and my heart was going pretty quickly again.
I am just perplexed and I think my doctors have been too. I just was wondering if anyone had any ideas about this?
Welcome to the forum!
Since you have headaches you must ask your doctor to look into migraines and benign intracranial hypertension. ECHO may also show problems like mitral valve prolapse that can cause your symptoms.
Dizziness could be due to postural hypotension (blood pressure falling with change of position), internal ear problems and cervical spondylitis or compression of cervical spinal nerves. All these cause dizziness when you get up from lying down position or when you change position that results in a change in the level of your head. Cervical spondylitis and ear problems also cause dizziness on changing the position of the neck.
Other causes of dizziness and fatigue are anemia, claustrophobia, GERD, hypoglycemia or low sugar and some endocrine problems. Endocrine problems, such as an underactive thyroid (called hypothyroidism), overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency (called Addison's disease), low blood sugar levels, and in some cases, diabetes, may lead to hypotension and hence lightheadedness and an off balance feeling.
Please go through this post and see what other possibilities have not been looked into.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Thanks for the help. After I have my echo and stress test tomorrow, and then meet with the EP, and cardio the week following I hope to have more answers. If they don't find anything wrong with my heart I will definitely look into these other problems.
Right now what is concerning me is the bradycardia, and the fact that my heart got down to 32 overnight. I am worried that it may be Sick Sinus Syndome or some sort of Heart block and I will need a pacemaker.
