On the 28th of July I was giving my son a bath and reached down to put him in the bath tub and while reaching down I noticed that I had this horrible pain in my chest. It was so bad I had a hot flash and felt like I was going to pass out so I went and laid down on the couch. I could feel the pain when I moved my left arm in and my chest was very sore. I went to the doctor and after a chest x-ray and a ekg is said I had costchondritis. This went on for another week of bad pain and my husband took me to the er where they did bloodwork, an ekg, chest x-ray and said it was chest wall pain. The pain seem to go away some but I woud still feel it on and off when I would try to roll over in bed at night, it felt like muscles pulling. During all of this pain I was having dizzy spells with it. about two weeks after the pain started I got a headache, after the headache never went away I went back to the doctor. My chest was not hurting then just headache and dizzy spells. Now I am dizzy from the time my feet hit the floor until the time I go to bed at night and sometimes I am so dizzy that I feel like I am going to pass out. My chest is not hurting like it was the first time just every now and then. I am very tired and weak all of the time. My neurologist is sending me to a cardiologist for the dizziness Monday. Does anyone have any clue what is going on. I am 25 years old mother of a very active 18 month old. Up until the chest thing I have been pretty healthy other than extra weight I put on when I was pregnant. I have also noticed at night that my arms go to sleep while I am sleeping but they wake back up when I move them around. My bp is good, I am not diabetec.
