HI, i am a 23 year old female expierencing almost loosing conciousnes (near syncope). I also at the same time have shortness of breath, tingling in right side of face, hand, head and foot, muscles in right arm seem to get tight and weak and I also feel very cold.I have sharp pains in head that only last 2 to 3 seconds spontainiously in differant parts. These symptoms only last 10 to 20 min. at a time. Although I am usualy dizzy all day long, sometimes even feeling like the room is spinning. ER says im having panic attacks that are causing the near syncope, how ever I told them about my heart pains and palpatations that I have had longer than all these new symptoms. the first sign of the new symptoms started jan.29th 2006. whats wrong with me? and what kinds of tests should be done to get a diagnosis? Please help!!! The ER keeps sending me home saying all my vital signs are fine.
i might be wrong but there is a test called a tilt table test. the disorder my daughter had was neurocardiogenicsyncope. ask your dr about it. its where the heart and brain dont click. its not dangerous but you should go see your gp. good luck
