I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

What tests should should one in early twenties take for the symptoms like rapid heartbeats, frequent UT I's,chest pain,fatigue and mood swings ?

I am female, 24 yrs old, 99 pounds ( average for me), 5 2, normal bp is 95/65. I started having blackouts and seizures in Dec 2008, which happened once a month every 3-4 months. They started with my heart racing and shallow breathing; during the seizures it felt as if my heart may pop it was beating so fast. I have not had this happened since Nov 2010, but I am still have chest pain that starts near my heart and leads down my left arm and hand. I also get heart flutters sometimes that are so noticable that it s hard to breathe and I feel as if I will pass out. I have been tested for electrolyte imbalance , diabetes , thyroid and blood sugar problems, and anemia; everything was normal except my blood level was right at normal. A hospital stated that I had a first degree AV heart block , but the echo cardiogram thru my general doc came back within normal limits. I have seen 4 doctors and 2 hositals about my symptoms, but the only explanation I get is that I am dehydrated, which doesn t make sense ( I am constantly drinking water and juice) and how could I become that seriously dehydrated so quickly? I have no insurance and cannot afford anymore testing, but I am so scared of the chest pain, I am too young. Other symptoms include: foul smelling urine, fatigue, weak spells, frequent UTI, chest pain with left side stomach pain, heartburn , mood swings (irritation). Any suggestions so maybe I can get specific tests??

Hello Whitney, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your symptoms suggest you have Bundle Branch Block (BBB). It is a condition in which there is a delay or obstruction along the pathway that electrical impulses travel to make your heart beat. It can occur in people who are otherwise healthy, but it may be a sign of another underlying heart problem. Though BBB itself often requires no direct treatment, you will need treatment of any underlying health condition that is causing it such as heart disease. It could also be due to Thickened or weakened heart muscle or High blood pressure or a heart Infection. May be you can get a Repeat ECHO cardiogram by consulting another Cardiologist.
Your other symptoms suggest, Gastritis due to stress and Urinary Tract Infection. Get yourself examined by a Urologist to rule out any Renal stone since you have left abdomen pain. May be you require a Ultrasound scan to confirm it. Drink Plenty of water and avoid stress. Practice relaxation techniques like Yoga and Meditation. Learn more about this condition as this will help you understand your condition better and will help you stick to your Treatment plan. Go for regular follow up.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Dear Doctor. I am working in Gulf. I am single 34. last march I came to India. During my vacation. I had sex with one married girl. Her husband also working in abroad. She was not a prostitute. She was one of my friends classmate. I saw rash in both of her lower arms. She told me that was allergy problem. Now I belive she was infected with HIV. During sex I used condom. but I put my fingers inside . and there was a small cut in my finger that happends 2 days before. and there was deep kissing . and she done oral without protection less than 1 min. After 2 days of the event I felt joint pain in fingers. and a small rash came to my upper lips and roof of my mouth . After around 35 days of this event some problems started on me:- 1 In my right side of my tounge and lips appeard white spots. 2, sore throat, reddish throat and swollen tonsil for a month. and my sound change. Red eyes for 2 days and foamy saliva 3, little swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin. 4, Very mild Flu around 3 week . a cold and discomfort feeling from chest and stomac 5,itchy Rash came in my whole body. coming and disappearing in 30 minutes 6, Neck stiffness and pain 7, 1 week there was diarrhea 8, swollen left upper eyelid one day 9, musle vibration in whole body 10, Digestion problem 11, black bloody spot in lips for one day 12, head presure 13 fatigue 14,Ear whisiling I took Augmentin 625 for 5 days. I am fearing to go a hopital here. I told her that you have some problem. So you should take a test. she went to a doctor and done General check up . and she told she is ok.she dont have any problem . I think she did not take Hiv test. Now I am very upset and worried about HIV. As I am in abroad I cannot take a Hiv test here anonymously. I belive i am infectd with HIV. What I want to do next? can I confirm HIV with these symptoms? If I am infected when I want to start treatment. How long I can hide this from others and family members. Is there any hope for curable medicines in my life time.

I have been having some type of attacks that we stiff haven't got to the bottom of, I have been diagnosed with ulcer because the zantac helped me lol, then a couple of days later I was taken to the er with the same type of pain which I was diagnosed with biliary colic even though the ultrasound and xray didn't show anything, Then I was diagnosed the third at the er with having a panic attack and that I know wasn't it because I have had panic attacks since I've been around 14 yrs. old. Then I was diagnosed by my family dr. for constipation. lol. These attacks sometimes can be brutal. The pain starts in my back between my shoulder blades, and sometimes it only hurts on the left side and sometimes radiates to right to left but the pain is horrific and painful. These attacks usually cause me to sweat, I feel like I'm having a heart attack because of the pain in my chest, it causes me to burp a lot trying to help stop the pain, I shake because I think its where I'm hurting so bad, and sometimes get the chills, they usually only last about an hour the longest one I had lasted 3 hours. I recently just had another mild attack which wasn't real bad, but every since then I have like stomach acid that feels like it continually flows, I am on Prilosec 20 mg of the morning and zantac 150 mg. at night and have been since this started about 3 months ago. If the dr. presses on the right side of my stomach it hurts, it's like a burning type of tenderness pain that hurts really bad. They have done a hida scan and in the first hour they gave me radio active stuff for my gall bladder to appear but within that hour it did not show, so I had to wait another 30 minutes and finally it showed. Then the second part of the hida scan they gave me ensure to drink to watch how it functions, My family dr. said it was normal. I'm at my whitts end. I don't know what's wrong with me. My belly stays bloated out most of the time, I'm ashamed of when the pain hits because I don't want my kids to see me like this. I'm worried it's my colon since my dad had colon cancer and I have had blood in my stool real heavy for 3 days, went to my family doctor and they took a sample and tested it and said that was normal and since it was bright red it's really nothing to worry about. I just want to find out whats wrong with me. These drs. I think are starting think I'm some type of hypercondriac lol.. any advise would be helpful. Also sometimes that can set these attacks off is like eating something spicy, The other day I drank orange juice and ate a barbeque tv dinner and then had that attack, sometimes if me and my husband get into an argument sometimes that sets it off, or if I have a bowel movement it sometimes sets it off and the last round of antibiotics caused me to hurt. So I don't know what to do.
