Well as you describe,chances of any serious heart disease in your case as your heart rate is fine.

However at your young age,other possible causes of such symptoms may include Cardiac arrhythmia,thyroid dysfunction,anemia.

You should start a multi-vitamin supplement.

Also hydrate yourself with Gatorade.

Low or fluctuating blood pressure can also result in such symptoms.

Eat a nutritious diet rich in fruits and green leafy vegetables.

I understand your worry about financial situations so you should do deep breathing exercises.

Eat small meals throughout the day.
