Been to the ER a bunch times for chest pains and some shortness of breath. After probably the 4th visit they figured I just was suffering from bad anxiety, been seeing a psychiatrist about it to and it's been helping with anxiety problems along with some .5mg lorazapam.
Recently I been having this weird pain on my lower left chest area that's been weird, also sent me to the ER twice because it scared the crap out of me. Doctor told me that's it's possibly gastric related, maybe like heart-burn and possibly some other acid-refux type stuff. Basically it's a soft pain, very noticeable and sometimes it's sharp. Comes and goes, kinda pulsates for a little then gone, then maybe back again one minute later and it'll keep doing it ALL day. Lately it's been getting a little worse I think, or maybe it's in my head but still probably too early to tell. So far I've noticed it'll do it while moving and while resting, can't replicate by breathing in deep or moving my body in some weird shape. I have been experiencing some back pains here and there so don't know if that has anything to do with it either. Oh, and some heart palpitations.
I've attached a pic of where the main pain zone is to give you an idea.
I was told by the doctor to possibly see a cardiologist but I can't afford to see them and they want $300 for a check-up up front. The tests they did were a cat scan, x-ray, blood work, and EKG. Had me under monitoring for a bit too and nothing. I been taking some zantac/pepto too see if the pain goes away if it is gastric related but the frequency at which it comes and goes it hard to tell so far. Also, pain does occur even when I have taken my lorazapam.
Also, don't know if this is related or not but EVERY time I go to lay down I can feel my heart pounding away like crazy and then I have shortness of breath which I assume is triggered by anxiety since I instantly assume heart issues. Laying on my left side make it go hardcore pounding mode, right side not so much, laying on my back seems to make it feel better for a little bit.
Any ideas cause I'm going crazy here thinking I'm going to die by some freak of nature heart failure. Also if this helps, 24yrs old and a bit on the underweight side.
