Hi , two years ago I was ill and had chest pains, I went to the doc and I was diagnosed with a mild case of marfan syndrome , which is a weak connective tissue disorder, ever since then I've been admitted into hospital every 5months or so , because of dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and racing blood pulse, these symptoms usually start acouple of hours after any type of physical exertion , carrying heavy objects, moderate sport, sex etc, I have had every blood test done , CT scan, echo, and doctors still don't know what seems to be the problem, does anyone have an idea what this could be?

I would go back to your Dr. and ask him outright if you are having a problem with your heart that could be causing the sx. Dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and racing  pulse are all sx of possible cardiac problems or also anxiety.
Are you on any medications?
This is not a topic we see here often but I do hope someone will come along who can give you better information than I did.

These symptoms sound similar to my psvt tachycardia. I would get dizzy, nauseated, my vision would black out on me and my knees would give out but I would still be conscious of everything around me. My heart rate would randomly spike up then go back to normal usually after a long walk, a bit more strenuous day at work ect. I found that sipping on ice water helped bring me back around usually as well as resting. To get a diagnosis I of course got the halter monitor for a week and got lucky. Has a couple attacks while I was wearing it. I would talk to your cardiologist and see if your symptoms match up to psvt.

Good luck and I hope they figure out what's going on I know how scary an undiagnosed heart problem can be.
Crushed right meniscus, psvt tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia, L4-L5 bulging disc with tearing, pinched sciatic nerve left and right. L5-S1 disc gone bone remodeling with bone spur pressing on spinal cord. [Recommended spinal fusion]


If pain is weakness leaving the body then I must be a strong woman by now.
