i am 19 yrs old. i have been ill the last yr! :( at first i had tonsillitis for a month last december and it i felt terrible for ages. then a month later during a run i felt like i couldnt breathe properly and was struggling to breathe in fully. the following months i had central chest pain and was making me feel tired all time with no energy and no pain killer was helping. i saw my gp who said i had costochondritis, and was given painkillers which didnt really help that much. i went back to see my gp in april who said i had a fever, chest pain, high blood pressure, high resting HR of 115bpm, i was referred straight away to hospital where they did chest x-ray, blood test/pressure, ecg's. no problems, but was referred to see a cardiologist. the cardiologist told me to have an echocardiogram, exercise stress test and pulmonary function test. these showed that i had pericarditis. in september i went back in and was told all results were normal and the pericarditis has gone! however i was still experiencng gradual sternal pain and my left lower ribs are tender and i get sharp pain there every now and again, and was then told i had post viral syndrome!
however i wondered because there is no evidence of having it anymore i still fell the same pain, also because ive had a few problems i dont really know which diagnosis the pain is from?
any ideas anyone?
