I am 28 years old. In the past year I have been to the emergency room twice for chest pains, shortness of breath, almost fainting( first visit). The most recent visit was almost two months ago. They did not come to any kind of conclusion or diagnosis. And, I am not asking you to. Last night when I was going to sleep I noticed my heart was beating very hard and very fast. It was also seeming to skip a beat or something. I have had this happen to me quite a few times in the past few years. I also woke up last night twice completely covered in sweat. So much so that my wife had to put a fan on the mattress when she got home from work today. Odd thing is, is I did not smell of sweat when I woke up this morning neither did the sheets this afternoon when my wife got home. I have had severe chest pain, trouble breathing, lack of energy, a sharp pain that shoots from my chest to my neck, difficulty swallowing , and an irregular heart beat for awhile now. I am just looking for as much advice as I can get.View Thread
