Pain in back, ribs, palpitating heart and trouble breathing? Why?
I think it's because I've not been getting much food or because I've been losing weight so rapidly. I was taking a shower and started experiencing pain in my back and ribs when I would breathe and my heart would palpitate every so often. I checked, and my heartbeat is slightly faster than it should be. In the past 6 months I was hospitalized once for having a heartbeat of 181 (at it's highest. Stayed at 140 for several days) so it worries me slightly that I could have a heart problem.
Could this be caused by starvation? Not that I'm intentionally starving myself, but I don't have much to eat here and can't really afford much food. In the past 3 months I dropped from 108 to 95 lbs.
