Hey, during working i was sweating a lot even when i wasn't doing all to much, this was going on for a few weeks and occasionally i would get this shooting pain in my chest and i would feel weak for a second then i would go back to normal. I went to my doctor and he more or less said it was nothing to worry about. November 11th i was having a beer when i noticed these red blotches under my eyes. So i decided to not finish the beer and start heading towards home. On my way home i started sweating like crazy and my heart started beating like it was going to pop out of my chest. My vision was blurry. i called 911 and went to the hospital where they ran alot of tests on me and nothing was found. After that episode i felt real weak the next few weeks and was experiencing chest pain and discomfort in my left arm. Since the doctors wouldnt find nothing i decided to go to a wellness clinic/chiropractor and they said i was very sensitive to sugar due to having way to much in my system. and also that my spine at the very top was out of wack. after going to him stuff started to get better but no where near perfect. Latley i have been getting these red patches under my eyes and have been feeling weak to the point of fainting everyday. I was hoping someone had and ideas or suggestions? I am a 24 year old male.
A the age of 24 years a man should feel fine, but you are not in that category. You are describing excessive sweating, blotches under the eyes, at least one episode of your heart racing, blurry vision, and generalized weakness. You also report chest pain and discomfort in the left arm, weakness and faintness.
Too much sugar in the system is diabetes, but I gather that is a chiropractic diagnosis without diabetes.
I'm not sure what is going on. You don't mention your work, your habits, your alcohol intake, drugs you are taking, your past history or your family history. The nature of the chest pain you are describing would be important. The major symptoms you are now experiencing appear to be daily weakness and faintness.
Reading your story, it seems to me that your major symptoms have changed over time and that your were feeling OK before this sequence started, and therefore you should definitely check with your doctor again. He may want to do certain blood tests and may want a dermatologist to check the rash under the eyes.
Please keep in mind that I am unable to diagnose medical conditions online.
I have been to several doctors, have had many blood tests taken and also been to a heart and lung specialist. All results showed that nothing was wrong. Two of the doctors told me that i just suffer from anxiety. Which i don't believe. I believe i do have anxiety but it is being caused by something. My chiropractor/wellness says that my neck is pinching on a nerve causing the chest discomfort and the rest of the feeling is being caused by adrenal fatigue. After a few chiropractic appointments and taking a vitamin supplement for the adrenals i am feeling a bit better however still not right. I work as a carpenter, used to drink maybe twice a week not excessively maybe 4 or 5 beers. But now when i have one beer i turn all red and sweat and urinate frequently. so i havent had one since Nov 11. I used to smoke about half a pack a day, but have quit that, after my episode as well. I also used to smoke marijuanna quite frequently but that also has stopped after my episode, i have recently tried to see if i could do that and found out that it will make my heart beat weird and just doesnt give me a satisfying result. So overall i have quit smoking drinking and eating unhealthy since november 11th, and still dont feel right. Does adrenal fatigue and out of place neck make sence?
