I had one doc note that I had a slight murmur years ago, I wasn't ever told anything about it, I was just reviewing the medical records I have at home the other night and saw it, so my current doc does not know yet. It was never noted by any other docs and never showed on any other physicals/tests I had later.

Good luck. Most otherwise normal young and healthy people often overlook simple habits. Someone your age probably doesnt need meds. Unless they are used to save your life, they can often be worse than the actual problem.
I do not drink diet sodas and I don't use artificial sweeteners. I cut down on soda a few months back, never noticed a difference if I drink a lot or a little of them.
I've been going to a chiropractor for a few months, mentioned to him that I was having pains in my chest and thought they were from the muscle spasms in my back, he mentioned magnesium defeciency would cause muscle spasms and chest pains. I started taking a mulivitamin a few weeks ago and it seems to have helped with the muscle spasms, but not the chest pains.
I'm willing to consider anything anyone mentions. Thanks for the thought.
I haven't started taking the meds yet, but I'm not feeling any better and actually worse at times, so I don't know if I should try them or not. I was going to wait for all the tests results.
