Heart Health



Hi there
I wondered if anyone is out there who can help me, I am truely worried about my health and do not know what to do.
Four months ago I was in hospital and the doctors suspected I had a blood clot as my D-DIMER tested positive. I have heart pulpitions on occasion, but before I was taken into hospital I had eleven within one hour. I had an injection of blood thinner into the stomach.
I had a 24 hour tape put on and I have a random range of 50-110, even though it fits in the normal border, I am 26 and that to me isn't normal, especially for someone who was lying in a hospital bed not moving.
I have tightness in my chest, heart pulpitations, fast heart on occasion, OR, really slow, back tightness, neck tightness, occasional headaches (some which are bad and don't go away with over the counter pain killers) dizziness, and feeling a bit sick now and again.
my TSH levels went up but then went back to normal, and my bilirubin went up, but now back to normal.
I started to feel ok for a while but now it's all started again, I had ringing in my ear and went deaf and my vision is a little blurry. I had the flu also, and my bodys finding it so hard to recover. The thing is, the doctors took a swab and nothing came up, even though it hurts and it was red, but no infections been detected. I was given antibiotics for sinusitis, but it's not helping.
I do not know what's going on with me and I really would appriciate some medical advice.
I never feel normal, I always feel ill, and I feel very alone.
I don't do drugs, I don't drink much, I treat my body well and keep fit.
Please if someone is out there who could help please message me or write under this post xx.
Laura.

Hi Laura! To be honest, it sounds to me like anxiety and panic disorder. That can easily make your heart race even while laying down. It can also cause may of the symptoms you are describing. I know it's hard to believe but that really can contribute to the health anxiety you are feeling. If the doctors gave you a clean bill of health, then maybe you should speak with your primary care about possibly trying an anti-depressant and a therapist to teach you how to cope. I have lived with this for many years and understand your fear, there are many of us out here. :)  As long as you doctor has checked you out and not finding anything you may want to ask him or her about this ~ hugz ~
