Hey guys, sorry this isn’t quite on topic of this category, but I’m in need of some advice as doctors have no idea what’s happening to me, and I fear I’m getting misdiagnosed.
I’ve had lower t for a number of years. I’ve tried trt, clomid, hcg all in varying protocols. While on any of these protocols, I’ve been experiencing chest pain, that radiates into my left shoulder/ left armpit and left arm. And at times my left arm will be numb, this pin is also accompanied by cold sweats all over my body. Now I’m off trt, and I’m experiencing this pain in an even more severe manner. If I drink alcohol, the issues flare up the day after drinking, and if I smoke tobacco, they get very bad, and have brought me into the ER as I thought I was having a heart attack.
I’ve been to the ER a handful of times, and I’ve also done a stress test and echocardiogram. They’re saying everything is normal. One doctor told me anxiety was causing it, but when I take Ativan the pains do not go away. Another said “I’m too young to have heart issues, so I doubt there’s anything going.” I’ve recently had to do my own research and try and figure out what’s going on. This is where I’m sitting right now:
-possible adrenal issues/adrenaline spikes from high cortisol/blood sugar issues.
-microvascular angina/coronary artery spasm. These two diseases are related, and although more common in women, its a possibility I wanna look into. The only issue is, it’s hard to diagnose and most often won’t show up on ecg, or stress test. so doctors will miss this diagnosis most of the time and won’t do any further testing to investigate, because your ecg shows normal activity.
