Hi , Iam a 38y old female. Im not overweight and have all the blood test cuople of months a go and they all came up normal. It has been around 1 year by now that I have lots of problems with my chest pain and discomfort ,weakness , diziness and recently I cant even work out . I went to Cardiologist and he did some cardio test and sonography and they came up normal about 6 months ago. I have all the sympttoms that I described more often happen to me now. before it was once / twic a week , but now Im sick, have chest discomfort, feeling very weak and dizzy every day. I dont have insurance any more and I dont want pay lots of money ro get the insurance and go to doctores and they tell me there is nothing wrong with me . it is affecting my social , work and also my relation ship with my partner. I cant do anything that needs even a little effort now. I just walked at the mall today for 1-2 hours and the sympgtomas started by feeling very strong squeez under my left chest/ breast and I stated to feel extremly cold and I feel weak and dizzy... when it happens it usually takes about 2 days to go away completely from my body and then it happens again ... Im so scared to work out now ... I used to work out 4-5 times a week before but when I go to work out like last week after 2-3 months I felt soooo sick for 2 days that Im so scared to repaeat it . and now it happens to me even after walking? please help me to find out if it is angina ? or it is kind of heart failure? some times I think maybe my heart is so weak that cant pump the blood & oxygen to my body ... so that is why I feel extremly tired and I have very bad body aches for two days after it happens to me .... Please tell me any ideas you have ...I cant even have any excitement with my partner because it happens at those time too and I'm getting so far from him ... what should I do? I dont even know what Dr to go and what to check? I dont even know any doctor that really want find out about the reason of the problem... thay cant find the reason and they tell me it is panic attack.... but it is not.... My heart dont raised and ..... any comments or help would be appreciated... Sarah

Answer

Hi Sarah,

From your symptoms you know something is wrong now it's just a matter of hunting for a physician that will spend time investing your situation to learn the root of the problem. I recommend looking for a physician in your area that practices "functional medicine" and start there.

All the best,
