Panic attacks, or something more?

Postby perlfu » Thu Jul 26, 2007 8:19 am

I'm a 22 year old male. I've been experiencing some shortness of breath, slight dull chest pain (left and right sided), dizziness, fatigue, and some occasional disorientation. I went to the hospital emergency room. They did a chest x-ray, and an EKG, and those both came back normal. They said they thought they were panic attacks possibly combined with symptoms from having recently quitting smoking. The symptoms continued, and I started feeling tingling in my hands. They also have been getting red spots on both palms when lowered. Palms and fingers rather, (entirity of the underside of hand, lots of them, slightly warm, and don't itch).. Followed up with my doctor, same apparent diagnosis. He said that I could consult with a cardiologist if concerned. The thing that bothers me is that I don't really have any stress going on when this stuff comes up, and the spots are rather persistent. I'm not insured so I can't afford going from specialist to specialist if it's most likely nothing.
I'd appreciate any thoughts or opinions. Thank you.

Figured an image might be helpful in the case of the redness.
