Hi, my name is Josiah. I am a 22 year old male. For the last two months my heart has been acting very strange and I can't do anything physically exhausting at all without it feeling like it's going to explode out of my chest. It pretty much just started one day out of the blue. All of the my tests come back normal: chest CT, upper GI, vitamin and mineral levels, EKG, blood tests.
-Heart palpitations, heavy/fast heartbeat. My heart always feels like it's working too hard. The slightest activity causes it to beat very hard and fast which makes me feel physically horrible.
-Nausea/difficulty with eating. Anytime that I eat to the point of being full I feel awful. My heart beats even harder, I feel like I'm going to throw up.
-Shortness of breath.
-Dizziness. Not necessarily lightheaded, it just feels like my ocular perception is off.
-Weight loss. Despite the fact that I have been forcing myself to east, I'm still progressively losing weight. I'm down to a 133 lbs and am wasting away. (I am usually about 150)
-Warm feeling in the left side of my face. This one is kind of weird. Most days I get a strange warm feeling in my head at my hairline on the left side. No tingling, just warmth.
-Pressure in left inner thigh. Usually in the evening, I feel a pressure in my left thigh right on the big vein. In the last couple of weeks it's actually become a little painful. It's usually condensed to a small area and sometimes makes my whole leg tingle.
-Urticaria. I've had it for a year. I've tried changing my diet, but nothing seems to change them except the Claritin and Zantac. There are a few things that I know will cause a reaction. Tylenol causes a mild reaction. Ibuprofen causes an extreme reaction, my whole face will pretty much become a giant welt. Caffeine causes a moderate reaction.
