I have continous chest pains, back pain, & some other symptoms. any ideas ?

wondering if anyone has any idea what might be wrong with me ? I have continous chest pains (like pressure ), upper back pain , feel exhausted, often confused, and have started coughing lately. I ve had bouts of hard time breathing physically shaking in my hands, legs etc. with being very cold dizzy. I ve been to the ER numerous times had ECGs done but they do not show anything. My doctor says I have to lose weight . But my weight hasn t changed from last year all of a sudden I started getting these pains. I feel like I am dying. I used to read, garden ,walk now I just want to sleep all day. I can t even climb a flight of stairs. I m a chubby 33 year old was in good health before, except for the weight gain. I used to be athletic run but quit due to a knee injury about 3 years ago have put on about 60 lbs since. I called Telecare once they told me to go straight to the ER cause I was having a cardiac episode, but the ER doctor didn t even examine me...didn t even come within 3 feet. Anyone have any ideas ? I feel like an idiot.

It sounds like a medical condition, so the best people to treat it would probably be trained doctors. If the ER doctor didn't examine you, you might try seeing a different doctor and getting a few opinions. Weight is probably an issue. It might have something to do with your sleep if you are tired all the time - maybe sleep apnea. It might be stress related, and maybe some type of panic attack. At any rate, a medical doctor is really the one to see.

Hello. I am 19 years old and I have been having very strange symptoms recently. My lower left back has been hurting and when I take deep breaths my stomach and chest will often hurt. I have had to go to the bathroom frequently but I have had this problem for a little over a year now. I have already went to the doctor and they did a urine test and they said everything looks normal. I am paranoid I am pregnant right now but it s too early to take a test. I haven t had any symptoms other than spotting but I also did just recently start my birth control so that could be a factor. I m not sure what these symptoms mean but I m really worried.

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
