Brand new to these forum things and I figured what the heck. about two months ago I was carried out on a stretcher from work. I work retail, and was working very early shifts not getting much sleep, alot of caffeine etc. My heart randomly beat really hard one time, and it hurt. Again, this was a single beat. My heart rate then shot up to 126 and BP 180/110. I'm 22 years old and have always been a healthy kid. Maybe sleep deprivation and a bad diet finally was catching up?

I went to my promary care physician and he gave me lorazepam for anxiety. I started getting more of these events where i would first try to swallow, but couldnt, then my heart rate would shoot up and would be extremely heavy. It really started to affect me. I was admitted into the hospital for it and they ran all these tests. EKG, stress test, thyroid test, etc. Everything came back negative. I haven't been able to take a deep breath in a few months. I was pretty active in training for olympic weightlifting so I was also depleting mineral that i probably wasnt putting back in.

I started taking a magneisum supplement, stopped eating grains, and i began to feel a little better. I was also having PVC's every so often, which now apparently have subsided a bit. Now, I still can't take a deep breathe whenever I want, and now I have pain in MY left side of the neck and just under my clavicle whenever I try to take a deep breath. This has only been noticeable for a few days. All of these issues are really beginning to scare me. If anyone has an idea of what this might be, please let me know, I'm all ears .

Also, I saw a pulmonologist who prescribed me symbicort which I haven't been taking regularly at all because im stubborn and cant believe this is asthma related, but then again it very well may be. I am also a student, andevery do often in class i'll feel my heart beat harder. Maybe because i'm thinking about it? I dont know. I also have the feeling of alot of mucus in my throat that I can't clear out.

Thanks everyone ahead of time, I really appreciate anything you can give me.

what have your doctors said about the supplements? Are they giving you something to control your BP? PVCs are very common, but I can relate to your anxiety. If all your tests came back negative, I would take comfort in that. I would also lay off the caffeine and or get plenty of sleep. I get a sharp pain from time to time on my left side under my breast area when I take a deep breath, have had this for decades. Not to dismiss yours, but mine were not diagnosed as anything serious. If you are having a hard time with taking a full deep breath, maybe you should get a full chest workup. Xray.

Try not to be too nervous. try not to worry. I am very good at both, so I can tell you that it makes PVCs worse. They are a vicious cycle to begin with. You might want to also get your Upper GI checked into.

anyway, my best to you, and keep checking in to the forum. :-)
