Hi Dhage. Thanks for your query and for using health care magic

You mention that you have chest pain and breathing problem
Your ECG and ECHO are normal.
There is no significant cough.
Your symptoms are mainly related to deep thinking.

It appears that your symptoms are related to your thinking and its a psychological problem.
This can be related to stress and tensions too.

You need to consult a physician/psychiatrist for further evaluation of your symptoms and appropriate treatment.

Wish you good health.
Thanks and Regards,

Dr Kiran

Hi, For a few months now I have been having shortness of breath. I have the need to take deep breaths all the time. I feel like there are weights on my chest or it is constricted in some way. I feel pressure in my head. I am dizzy, have mini blackouts, get tingles in arms and legs and almost feel like I can t even lift my arms. I have been feeling very lethargic for months now. I notice that the symptoms subside when lying down. They also seem to be worse after eating? I also feel like my brain just isn t working properly. I don t have clarity and I m doing and saying weird things. I have had AF before but I don t really think that my heart is the problem although I do get a lot of chest pain when exercising but echo test said was ok. I have considered it to be anxiety related but I m not under any stress and the fact that it subsides when lying down makes me think that it s more physical than psychological. I have visual disturbances which leave me feeling nauseous. It s becoming a real nuisance as it is affecting my life drastically. I had a holter monitor test a few days ago - awaiting the results, but really don t think it will show anything up. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you. P.S. I m 28. Excellent diet, sleep, exercise, lifestyle.

i can t find anyone with my problem...just pieces here and there. I am a 22 year old female. i have a family history of heart disease but my mother and father are fine. I usually have a glass of red wine almost every night and some weekend i go out and drink. I ve had an occasional cigarette when drinking but not any time lately. I work in a stressful job but i don t feel like it is taking a toll on me, the only reason i mention it is because i hear chest pain can be stress related. i get a decent amount of exercise and doctors have always told me i am in good health aside from borderline asthma in high school. I also had a few panic attacks mid high school but haven t had any since. for the last two weeks or so i ve had bad chest pains in the center of my chest between my breasts. the usual off and on pain through the weeks has felt like my ribs are being pushed or punched inwards and sometimes it makes it hard to breath and i actually start breathing harder. here and there i think i ve felt a heart murmer and here and there i feel like someone stabs me in the chest or heart with a knife. its freaking me out and as i type i feel a deep pain i ve had for the last 20 minutes. it seems like these pains are getting worse and im in the middle of searching for a new doctor. i dont know if i should wait for something bad to happen to go to the e.r. or if i should just book a doctors appointment and wait out the pain.

I have had chest pain in my lower left lung on and off for the past 6 months or so. Before this I had pneumonia which was misdiagnosed for 6 weeks and ended up on three courses of antibiotics. I was just wondering what the chest pain is. I have lost my faith in my doctors due to being misdiagnosed for so long and would just like a reasonable answer.

My parents brought me to the emergency room because I was having chest pains, shortness of breath, I was getting tired very easily (after taken a couple steps), and having severe body sensitivity to touch. They made me go through the triage center and when they saw my heart rate was reaching up to 146 they admitted me. While in the ER my heart rate was maximum 186 and the doctors there could not find anything through the EKG, X-rays, and all the other tests they had administrered to help them find something to explain my rapid heart rate and tiredness. Well, I was admitted as an impatient the next day after going home and having diarrhea and vomiting all night. I stayed in the hospital a total of 3 1/2 days and they could not find anything wrong with me internally, from what they could see.

My general doctor who is also a cardiologist has already done a 2D echo-cardiogram and has put me on a holter monitor for 24 hours, hoping something would show up. the holter monitor showed that my heart rate goes up to 190 and he is so puzzled as to what it could be. He is thinking I have had this my whole life but only started noticing these symptoms now. He now wants to admit me in a hospital that specializes in cardio issues and is already consulting with anther doctor but they have not made a final decision yet as to what tests they want me to do and where they want to send me.

What could this be?
