I was so elated to see this kind of post! I am new as of 20 minutes ago, when I briefly looked over the site and signed up.
I am 16, and suffering from the same symptoms. Doctors across the state have been stumped by my flawless heart and head scans, as they searched for problems/diseases/illnesses; psychological, infectious, cancerous or otherwise.
The symptoms tend to become more frequent from very tight neck muscles; from stress, sleeping improperly, or simply because of TMJ, which I was diagnosed with at 12 years old. The daily headaches, severe migraines, blackouts, chest pain/breathing difficulty, etc began around the same time. I would suggest rest, Ibuprofen, and a big hug from me! :) Unfortunately, the symptoms don't completely go away, but from 4 years of the handicap, stress seems to be a small factor.
That's the best help I can offer, but I do wish to hear more from everyone about this topic! It absolutely wonderful to relate to others about this rare and baffling condition. Thank you very much for speaking out.
I wish the best of luck, --kate
