I'm 23 years old male and these are the main symptons i been having, alot of chest pains that associate with hard time breathing,heart palpitations,dizziness,fatigue,headaches,burning sensation in my heart and lungs.When i try to do physical work like running for along time or working out i get dizzy and sometimes i get serious heart palpitations which forces me to stop because of the discomfort and the feeling of passing out.I been to the ER 3 times with no answer, one night i was sleep and my heart rate slowed down so fast that i actually felt my blood slowing down in my veins which made me jump up out of panic that which speed my heart rate back up.I have been to two different speacialitst for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary which they ran alot of serious test which all came back negative and fine,blood work back fine but they said my white blood cells where a little low but not to worry about? And my chest X-Ray came up very cloudy so they sent me to get a Cat scan which came back negative but they reported a soft tissue flap fold in my lungs the specialist said that is common for young adults like me? I feel ill like im being attacked by a parasite or something is killing me slowly ,I have always been healthy with no problems at all so when i go to the doctor i tell them i know it is something seriously wrong with me because i always been healthy and theese symptons have been going on for almost 2 years with no subsiding.When i wake up i take a pain killer just to ease the pain i catch myself forcing air inside my nostrils to breath,my chest always feel heavy with discomfort and i hate being in the sun its hard for my eyes to take the sunlight, im not excitied about life no more because i have so much pain and headaches in my brain my emotions are dead of excitement.I still get real sharp stabbing pains in my brain which sometimes make my jaw lock up and i have a hard time opening my jaw and i get serious stabbing pains in my heart i have never did any drugs and i drink once out of the blue moon so i am very healthy and never did anything to damage my health i stayed into sports and bodybuidling with football and now i cant even enjoy life anymore because i been going through this for 2 years im lost i dont know what else to do should i keep going to see specialist?

I would seek out one more Cardiologist and ask about a PFO as you have the headache, chest pains etc.   Possible complications linked to patent foramen ovale include stroke, and migraines.
This is jmho to follow up so let us know how you are doing.
