I was always very active - powerlifting, biking, etc, until April of last year, I had a sort of cardiac event (extreme dizziness, thirst) that was possibly the result of a virus. It started as what felt like a panic attack, but it didn't respond to benzos or time. As it turned out, I had mild cardiomyopathy and some abnormal stress tests. Now, my echocardiogram is actually normal, but the stress test still is abnormal. I basically have some ischemia after exertion. With symptom severity changing over the months, now, the day after and often several hours after exertion - meaning an hour-long walk, or 10-15 minutes of yoga - my "anxiety" spikes, my body feels like it goes into overdrive, I get muscle pains all over (intense leg and back soreness from just 10 minutes of yoga). I even get some psychotic/anger-like mental things going on. I guess my main questions are - How would you categorize these symptoms, and what should be my next step to go about it? My psychiatrist believes I have a problem with my autonomic nervous system, and my integrative cardiologist may have something to say, and I feel like my low dose Carvedilol makes symptoms worse. I was thinking either a Skype consult with Dr. Enlander (I live in NJ, but funds are limited), or even a consult with Joe Cohen, that guy from selfhacked.com.. but he wouldn't be able to order me any tests. Sorry for the lack of detail, let me know if you need more info... trying to save my morning energy for some work, I had a very bad episode last night.
