    Idk what this is. PLEASE HELP!

    Okay, I'm a 22 year old male. I was born with tetralogy of fallot. I had surgery at the age of two and go to the cardiologist once a year and always had a good report. I don't smoke or drink. Recently, I have developed some weird symptoms. It started about a month ago, I was at work and suddenly I had a very sharp pain in the right side of my chest and it lasted for about 2 hours. I went to the ER and they did an echo and a EKG and everything was normal. Blood and urine test all normal. They ruled it down to a muscle cramp in a weird place basically. They also said it could be anxiety but I had never been diagnosed with anxiety or depression so I didn't think that was the case. Two weeks after that, I developed a very strange squeezing sensation in my stomach area. It didn't hurt but just felt weird. That squeezing lasted about a week. Now I just kinda feel spaced out. My head hurts at the top of my skull down to my right eyebrow. It isn't like a normal headache though, it's like someone stabbing me with a knife repeatedly in my head. Then it goes away but the pain is so intense, it makes me want to cry. I also am having pain from my neck to my ear on the right side mostly but it happens on the left occasionally. Last week at work, I all of the sudden got dizzy and almost passed out, this was accompanied by blurry vision of objects close to my face but when I would adjust the distance, my eyesight was fine. I went home from work and laid down to relax and then I felt fine. Just tonight, another symptom occurred. I have shooting pain from my right shoulder all the way to my neck behind my ear. It lasted for a few min then went away. I need to mention that I have been struggling financially which is one reason I haven't went to the doctor and this has put a lot of stress over my wife and I. Could all these symptoms really be anxiety or depression caused by all my stress here lately? Please someone enlighten me of what you think I should do next
