I am 27 years old overweight and have trouble losing weight with low calorie so I am doing a high protein keto diet. This is the only kind of diet I have success losing weight with. I started a month and a half a go and lost 15 pounds. I broil and bbq when I can and sometimes I fry meat. When I started I was 320 pounds I am now down to 305 pounds. I cheated yesterday on thanks giving day and had an episode. Usually the episodes start with a weird feeling in the chest(not pain it's like someone has there hand on my chest and is not putting any pressure.) , next the fear that something is going wrong with my body, sometimes I sweat, my heart starts pounding and it usually lasts about 5-10 minutes and is followed by fatigue.
My muscles ache sometimes in my chest and legs. I have not been doing enough exercise lately to cause this and my sister has "fibromyalgia". I have floaters in my right eye and I feel like my eye sight is not as good as it used to be. I have pain in either my bones or cartlidge especially my chest and back. I get pain if I push areas around my sternum and my back hurts a lot. Sometimes when I turn my upper body sideways I can feel that it hurts in the front area. I get my wife to walk on my back all the time and it helps temporarily.
Another thing I have noticed was I get muscle twitches all over my body. They are not major they are small and spread out.
I had a ekg, blood tests (recently posted it here), and chest xrays a few months ago. All ok except low test, slightly elevated cholesterol, and high blood pressure (could be white coat hypertension I monitor at home and it is usually normal).
Is that kind of diet dangerous? I mean high fat high protein low carb is better than the high fat high gi food diet I usually follow right? I am getting more labs done to make sure the diet isn't effecting cholesterol and kidneys negatively.
What is wrong with me? Is it my heart? I know I need to lose weight, but I can't do it all right away. Will testosterone make me feel better? Should I start taking meds for blood pressure and cholesterol? I read someone saying test will cause cholesterol to drop drastically so can I wait till january when i see Dr. Mariano. Or am I going mental and need an antidepressant?
