10 years ago noticed cold tingling in my chest when I ran.
5 years ago I had a pain near my heart area that lasted 1 year and went away. All the while breathing issue got worse little by little.
3 years ago I started passing out when I was sick, tore a ligament, had a wisdom tooth out, etc. I have passed about 10 times in my life, 6 of which were in the last 2-3 years.
When I pass out, I know about 20 seconds before. It's like a feeling of lack of blood to my heart and my heart beat goes slow. (Maybe Vaso Vagal response?)
My main thing is breathing. Just to give perspective, I had the life guard come up to me to ask if I am OK because I took so many breaks each lap. If I run too much I feel a tingly cold feeling.
TESTS: I have had CT scan of my brain/chest, MRI of my brain/chest, multiple X-rays of my chest, EKG, EEG, Excersise stress test, Spirometry (blow into a thing), Blood tests, Thyroid test results come this week.
I read your question and i understand your concern. If your labs are clear then it needs supportive care. anxiety and panic attacks can explain this all. Talk to a psychotherapist and let them help.
