I'm a 29 yr old female. I was a very active fit person until a couple years ago. My concern is I have had these pains in my chest since I was in my early 20s that make it painful to breathe and is sometimes accompanied by pain in my arms. Also, I get numbness and a tingling feeling in my fingertips and the back of my head ( and I can hear blood rushing) . I get blurred vision, dizzines and sometimes I lose balance. I eat fairly healthy but I also eat ALOT of junk and fatty foods.
There's history of diabetes, hearrt disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol in my family with both parents so I am getting worried. I once had such bad chest pain that I went to my DR and he told me I probably pulled a muscle and I was too young. I don't tend to go to DRs often nor to worry about my health but lately I feel like I "pull a muscle" more often than I think I should. I should tell you that I;ve had anemia issues since having my 1st baby in 1997. also, both my children are 32 week preemies.
Also, I sometimes get this scary intense feeling of weakness and shakiness almost to the point of collapsing and I have to eat something "sugary" to make it go away. Is that normal? I'v also been experiencing that in my early 20s.
any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
