Hi All. I am 39 years old. I had my first child in June 2011 at age 38. Since then, I have been experiencing many weird health symptoms. The weirdest symptom I experience is this weird rush/surge sensation in my chest which occurs at random times for no apparent reason and only lasts a second or two. Very scary! I am extremely fatigued and irritable. I sometimes feel like my body is going to shut off. I occasionally have heart palpitations and random chest pain. My muscles also hurt frequently. I am so irritable and full of anger that I actually feel sorry for my family. I have seen a cardiologist, a hematologist, 2 gynocologists, a neurologist, and a gastroenterologist. I still have no answers. I have tried many medications for anxiety which seem not to work, although klonopine provides a little relief. I take metoprolol for high blood pressure. It was suggested by my OB/GYN that i try birth control, which kind of scares me. Could this be hormonal? Does this sound like anxiety? Any suggestions?
