Terrified and not knowing what to think
I am 33 years old. For 2 years I have been suffering from an unknown immune system disease – symptoms: cough coming from the stomach, pain in the salivary glands, tongue, constant exhaustion, dizziness.
After seeing 50 doctors and doing genetic tests nobody finds anything except that I have a large deficiency in lymphocytes (CD4/CD8) but HIV negative. My stomach is inflamed but without a specific cause.
Last August, I woke up one morning and my heart was different. Tachycardia at 100-130 at unable to do anything, anxiety, chest tightness and crazy feeling of anxiety. I went to the emergency 3 times – I did a 6 day ECG, a CT-Scan and an ultrasound – all normal. The feelings haven't gone away and it's been a real nightmare since, I'm not the same person anymore. I wake up at night with the feeling that my heart stop or jump a beat, and drop very quickly. So I did a cardiac MRI and another 48-hour EKG. Only a single Block Mobitz II was seen overnight but the doctors weren't worried and said my tachycardia/slight arrhythmia was only 1% beats and should not be treated.
I have a small vitamin B12 deficiency but everything else is normal. I am extremely afraid of having a cardiac arrest because my heart does not seem to work and the sensations are really terrifying. What can it be?
I'm worried it's getting worse because of the Block they found and I can't believe it's nothing serious because I feel extremely bad.
I have to catch a flight today and I'm terrified.
Help please 🙁 xxx
