Headache / Dizziness - HELP
Dec 23, 2022 I was driving home from the store and felt a wave pain from my left shoulder across my chest and got extremely dizzy/faint. Ended up blacking out. I pulled over because I thought I was having a heart attack. My heart started racing, got up to almost 200 beats per minute, Chest tightness, couldn’t breathe, etc. I was take. By ambulance to the hospital and diagnosed with palpitations and sent home as my numbers returned to normal.
New Years Day returned to the hospital with another episode. Did CT scans, stated it was palpitations and sent me home. I felt extreme headache, dizziness, ear pain, chest pain. Add anxiety and not sleeping because I was scared.
Jan 5th went back to the ER as the headache would not get better. Did head CT and no aneurysm or anything. Gave me meds and sent me home. Medication helped for a few days and headache returned worse than ever.
Been in and out of ER with scans and whatnot since. One doctor suggested musculoskeletal pain, nerve pain, etc. Saw cardiology in the beginning of April and heart monitors came back with no sign of arrhythmia. I do have inverted t-waves and with a family history of CAD, they scheduled an echo stress test in May.
I saw ophthalmology and was cleared with nothing wrong (except dry eyes) from their perspective.
I had an MRI on my brain and it showed “There are a few punctate nonspecific white matter lesions left
frontal lobe, can be
associated with seizures, migraines, vasculitis, versus atypical multiple
sclerosis” but i do not see neuro for a few weeks.
My acid reflux is horrible. I wake up with burning and sore throat and pain in my neck (most likely from acid reflux) been taking famotodine and tums. This morning i noticed a small lump on my neck. Wondering if that could be causing my headaches and dizziness?
This all started in December and I am not sure what other route to take. I feel as if my PCP is getting annoyed and passing me off on the NP. I have headaches and am constantly dizzy. All my blood work is normal (including thyroid panel). It is affecting my daily life. I just want to go back a few months and feel the way i used too. Any suggestions? Thoughts?
