Hello, I'm hoping someone can help me. The past three months i have had symptoms which include: dizzy, lightheaded, fatigue, tickle in throat, lack of energy, extremely tired, and a fast heart rate, around 90-100 resting. I have had an mri, multiple blood tests, chest x-rays, multiple ekg's, and multiple physical examinations by all specialists known to man. I am getting a heart ultrasound tomorrow along with a stress test to make sure i do not have a heart problem. Long story short i was diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder/stress/depression and its been worse awaiting these tests yet to be done. Could this be something like heart a heart disease? Or is it just anxiety? I feel symptoms regardless of being anxious. I am a 19 year old male, out of shape.
Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
The symptoms for the heart disease includes chest pain associated with shortness of breath, profuse, sweating, nausea, jaw ache, pain in the shoulders and arms etc. Heart disease is very rare at the so young age. Your symptoms might be due to anxiety disorder, stress and depression. You must keep in touch with your personal physician and get the reports of the tests already conducted and further work up if require.
Hope this helps. Take care.
