I have this squeezing throbbing down deep on my chest that is likened to someone having their hand in there squeezing something. Only way I can describe it it's like a narrowed area of a pipe and where the pipe narrows pressure builds up at the entry end. This is amplified with sluggish intense throbbing for example when I first stand up. I feel dull pressure in my chest most of the time, at rest or not, and I have horrid fatigue, lightheadedness, especially during exercise, and early heartbeats that I've never had before. My echo, EKG chest Xray and blood tests were all normal. This illness , whatever it is, is bringing me to my knees, please help me.
Doc, a quick follow up question if I may??
sorry I forgot to mention I had a nuclear test on the same day as my echo and it was OK. Do I maybe need a chest scan to look at my aorta, or something like that? Or does an echo rule out that? Or a MRI of the heart? You say that it occurs after exercise, this is not really the case. It is pretty much a looming awareness of pulsing in my chest 75% of the time and it's made worse when I first stand up. I have weakness and feel lightheaded with it the time even with normal arm pressure.
