Doctor :   Hi
User :   I need help. Its been 9 1/2 weeks with same problem. Shortness of breath, dizziness and pressure in head.

All cardio workup has been done. Totally normal. Normal stress test.

Its begining to become a HUGE strain on my family and home life. Dr's in my small town look at me like I am crazy. Even my family begining to doubt me.

My brief medical history includes an orchiectomy of left testicle in march of 2009, A neck fusion done in 1999 at the c6 c7 area, gallbladder removed in 1998.

I was told 4 weeks ago I had a hiatel hiatal hernia, but they didnt seem concerned.

I feel like I am drained of energy all the time. If I am laying down the symptoms arent that bad , but when I stand up or set up for extended period of time I get dizzy, pressure increases, and I start having shortness of breath and occasional chest pain.

PLEASE PLEASE help me with some advice.
Thanks in advance
