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.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
