I am 25 years old, I don't smoke or consume alcohol, I eat a balanced diet that does not include red meat and have recently began an mild-moderate exercise program to help shed excess pounds. At my last check up I received a cholesterol and blood sugar screening and passed with flying colors!
I woke up about a week and a half ago with horrifying squeezing sensation in my chest and a feeling that I could not catch my breath. I stumbled around my house confused and frightend until the sensation went away- it felt as though it lasted forever, I went back to sleep after the event- because I was both confused, exhausted and unable to wrap my head around what had happend. I donate plasma twice weekly, and since this event they have been deffering me because my resting heartrate is between 102-120 beats per minute when they check and recheck my pulse . I am such a calm person, I meditate and I feel like I should be able to relax this thing away, but it doesn't seem to be helping. My mother wants me to see my doctor, but I feel like I would be wasting her time after I just got a clean bill of health- it could have been some kind of night terror, and it could just be stress right? Who is right? my mom or I?
