For the past week, off and on, I have had these spells where out of nowhere I feel like I can't catch my breath and my heart feels like its going to beat out of my chest. Sometimes I even start feeling lightheaded and dizzy like I'm going to pass out. When I asked my doctor about it, she said it probably had something to do with my blood pressure dropping (of course it wasn't happening when I was in so she had nothing to actually check). Well, starting yesterday at lunch, it started happening again. It even got to a point where my arms were getting tingly like they weren't getting good circulation or something. By that evening, I started having severe vomiting and diarrhea on top of that. This continued through the evening. This morning, the stomach issues had subsided but it was still having the other problems. Went to work and almost blacked out in a room with a patient. My coworkers made me go to the ER to get checked out. While there, my blood pressure was fine as was my heartrate. There was some protein in my urine and I'm definitely dehydrated (probably from my puke fest last night) but nothing else out of the ordinary. The dr told me I was just having anxiety attacks. I've never had anything like that but he also didn't do any sort of physical exam so I'm just not sure if I buy this diagnosis... Anyone ever have anything like this before?
