Please someone help me.

Hello,

First I am sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language. I can't take it anymore, my symptoms...Constant shortness of breath (but with high O2 saturation, 96% at 3000 meters above sea level), I can't explain exactly the sensation related with swallowing, but is like swallowing is uncoordinated, I have to take a big breath before attempting to swallow, the process is not natural anymore (I can't eat in public). It's like breathing and swallowing are not more automatic functions, also have sudden cold sweat episodes. My life is a nightmare. Also for reference my symptoms are mild in the morning after I wake up, but are terrible as the time pass, the night is my worst moment. All my physical exams are perfect I don't know what is my problem. This nightmare is everyday, I don't have a break and I can't take it anymore. Any advice?? Thx in advance. Regards.

PS..I am a male, 47 years old. No smoking, no drinking, exercise daily and a decent nutrition. Any ideas, do you think is anxiety related.? Almost forgot, my Dr told me that's all in my head he send me Xanax and that's all. Thx. :cry:

Thx in advance. Regards

I have this condition for the last 15 years.

Almost forgot, my Dr told me that's all in my head he send me Xanax and that's all.


If you don’t listen to 12 cardiologists or an untold number of medical professionals over the last 25 years, why would you listen to an unqualified stranger in an online forum?

Go back to your doctor(s).

First who said that I don't listen to my Drs? When the doctors I visited all this years don't give me a proper diagnosis and treatment, I have to turn to other alternatives like this forum. In all this years I had several Dr appointments (cardilogist, endocrinologist,, neumology studies, neurology studies, no concrete results and no solution to my problem) what other option I have if not keep asking in forums where maybe is a remote probability that I find someone who could help me.The quest for health have many alternatives, the key is finding one that actually work. No offense but your reply is absolutely useless for me. Just my 2 cents. Thx

No worries. I’m in good company. The way I see it is that you struggle with accepting any advice as evidenced by 25 years of ignoring advice.

The other option you have is to actually listen to the advice of medical professionals. But, you won’t. Why?

Maybe you think you take the advice, but the results speak for themselves. You don’t listen, you don’t take the advice, you reject all advice past possibly a moment.

I recommend you focus on that issue, your inability to accept advice, rather than the psychosomatic issue. More advice for you to reject, but that is my 3 cents.

Hello again. I don't know how can you possibly know if I accepted or not the Drs advice. You don't know that, and your reply is based on your "wild guess" I accepted through all this years all my medical advice, I performed all the exams and tests they send me, I tried all the medication my Drs gave to me, also all the nutritional changes, exercise programs, meditation and relaxation techniques, etc nothing work, NADA, zero. So I still try to find a possible solution, you know when you are desperate about recovering your health and life, your search never end. Never judge a person or a situation if you don't know the FACTS. Again another useless reply. Just my 4 cents.

The same way any other reasonable person comes to the conclusion after you tell them you have gone to doctors for 25 years and "nothing" works.

You are not alone. There are plenty of people that tell themselves they are following the advice of a doctor. And they actually believe it! The most observable are people grossly overweight that truly believe they are exercising and eating the recommended calorie reduced diet. Fact is, they are not following the advice. For psychosomatic disorders the same thing occurs, but it is not as easy to observe.

Why do you not follow the advice? You believe all 12 cardiologists were wrong? You believe your current doctor is wrong? You believe all the previous doctors were wrong?

I'm fully aware and okay with the fact you believe my advice is useless. Fair enough. It as as useless as 12 cardiologists and any number of other professionals, so no big deal.

Still, I'm curious as to what discomfort or fear you are avoiding. In other words, you obviously feel more comfortable with the idea of anxiety and panic attacks than the alternative. Maybe this is a form of hypochondria.

To eliminate all refined carbohydrates, increase my omega 3-6-9 intake , increase healthy fats intake also to eliminate white sugar from my diet.

I don't know maybe you have good intention with your reply. But it has nothing to do with my situation. I followed the advice of all the Drs I visited through all this years. That's why I don't have PVC's anymore, no more lightheaded sensation,no longer I have cold hands or feet, because I take atenolol daily. The beta blocker totally fix my heart related symptoms. But my constant shortness of breath and difficulty with swallowing persist. Also I am in excellent physical condition, I ride 100 km weekly in my bike. So I assure you I know how to follow medical advice. I am out. Thx.

So then it sounds like hypochondria, going from medical condition to medical condition. I have a relative that is similar. Nothing actually wrong with her. She has gone to doctor after doctor for decades. Now pretty much all the doctors in the region are familiar with her.

My aunt does it for attention, but that doesn't sound like your situation. It sounds like you have an irrational fear of being unhealthy even though you are "in excellent physical condition". So when one issue is "resolved" you move on to the next. Doctors continue to reinforce to you that you are fine, but you don't trust them.

Have you been treated for hypochondria?

"Have you been treated for hypochondria?"

I am not jumping from medical condition to medical condition. I had 2 phases with my physical problems. The first one was PVC's, tachycardia, etc now solved thx to beta blockers, and the second one shortness of breath and trouble swallowing that's all. I have a friend with hypochondria and I know how it is. Just last week he was crying thinking he got skin cancer (just a simple infected pimple). My firend have over 500 posts in another health forum where he ask about a few dozens of health conditions. If you noticed my first post was in 2008, and 10 years after my second post. I am not an hychondriac. Anyways thx for trying to help. And thx for making me practice my english.

I do know that the allopathic doctors do not understand the lymph system. They treat symptoms and not causes, because they generally do NOT know the cause. It they don't know how to help, what good is their advice?

If you want to truly get better, you can start with understanding how the body works in regards to being truly healthy. Visit the YouTube channel of Robert Morse ND. If you also visit the John Rose channel, "you'll be in for a treat!"
