Customer Question
Ive been experiencing daily...

Ive been experiencing daily tightness of the heart along with a occasional wriggling sensation anywhere in the chest I've also got lumps on my hands and elbows and an overly itchy chest. I think I've got a parasite like fluke worm or something similar. I've been to the doctors and completed antibiotics courses but they haven't helped solve the issue. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Yes there is history on my mothers side I've not been feeling very well like there is something wrong

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have heartburn and take omsoprazole

I have spoken to my doctor and been on anxiety medication before but this is very different to what I have experienced in the past
Cardiologist: Dr. David, Doctor replied 6 months ago

it may feel different because you are not on anti-anxiety medications now.
