It's 3:47am as I type this up on my phone, dealing with another episode of feeling faint, go figure. Might be long and more of a vent, apologies. I've had quite a few procedures done to no avail.
For the past nearly two years, I've been experiencing infrequent chest pains, most prominent in my upper left part (from my POV) of my chest near my shoulder, which would sometimes shoot through my left arm. The pain would, on occasion locate itself on another part of my chest (right-side, left-center, center) but would never be simultaneous as far as I've noticed. Well, in addition to that, I've had equally infrequent dizzy spells that would come and go. I at first figured it was hunger pangs, but after an episode where it wouldn't go away, I went to urgent care to try and figure out what was going on.
Fast forward to now. I know that I deal with GERD symptoms, but they couldn't screen any internal damage from it. Two echos and ECGs done, had a number of blood tests done, an MRI scan, recent procedure just the last week to have images of blood flow to check for possible blockage, nothing, normal vitals on everything. That one time I went to urgent care I was borderline on high blood pressure, but they haven't seen that again with each test I've done. I drove myself to ER once within this time frame when another faint episode hit me that lasted for nearly 3 hours (including the time when I decided to go) whereas I couldn't even get myself to eat anything. Well, they couldn't find anything there either.
Lately (say the past 3 or 4 months), trying to sleep has been rough, as I go through these odd episodes of feeling light to the point where falling asleep feels like I'm going to faint rather than naturally going to sleep as normal. It causes me to keep myself awake because of how uncomfortable the feeling is. I couldn't really describe it as dizziness, as it doesn't really feel like that. Rather, it feels like my tongue is swollen (when it seems like it actually isn't), I find myself clenching my teeth together, find it easy to let my eyes roll back into my head, and my upper chest and arms and legs feel a bit heavy and warm. It's heavily distracting and disrupts my sleep because I cannot try and fall asleep otherwise. I'm lucky to find a time where I'm so tired I can just fall asleep earlier and not have to worry about dealing with this when going to bed at my usual time.
I'm worried, but after so many appointments, I'm becoming more and more accepting of my situation and just figure that it may do me in someday soon. I hate to think such, but I do deal with depression and I work and sleep on a pretty uneventful cycle, so it's not helping my mindset at all.
Any ideas? I can only look to schedule another appointment for this (and my primary physicist had just left the office I'd go to, great timing. Now I have to find another and have everything I've done thus far be relayed to them..).
