Increased heartbeat, difficulty breathing, lightheadedness after taking testosterone boosters. What is it?

Hello. I have a problem that started in September. I have been healthy my whole life with no problems whatsoever. I am 34 years old. In june of 2012 I started working out alot and taking P^ extreme testosterone boosters. In septmeber I started having lightheadedness , shortness of breath, my legs started shaking and became cold, my heart was racing, and I felt like passing out. I discontinued the pills thinking it was that but the symptoms still persisited from time to time. I felt like I was going to die. A month later I tried working out again but the symptoms hit me hard in the gym. I have been to numerous doctors who dismiss it as anxiety attack but I dont suffer from that. Only thing I can remeber whne working out is my loweer spine or back would pinch alot when lifting overhead. I dont know if its heavy metal toxicity , or nerve damage or what but its something.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

in all likelihood, there is no relation...

Heart beats need to be DOCUMENTED by ElectroCardioGram (EKG).
Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much coffee, cola) are common causes.
EKG / HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.
The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
