Could this be some bug I got back in Thailand manifested? im desperate for answers.my memory is not as good as it was a year ago when all this started. please help me,whats wrong with me?

All these things need to be checked, best confirmed by another consultation with a cardiologist. If all tests came back as normal, you might ask to have them repeated since they are now a year old.

If still negative including problems with your lungs and GI tract, other causes of chest pain and palpitations should be considered,
