Health Anxiety Strikes Again

My constant fear is heart attacks and blood clots even being only 27yrs old. I have feelings of pain in my right calf every so often but 3 months ago had been checked for a P.E with a chest X-ray and blood test and nothing. After losing my job of 6yrs and my place having to move back home certainly doesn’t help anxiety. To add on top my parents are going through divorce and now I’m living in a house with my father, sister, brother in law and niece. It’s a big change coming from living alone and having a lot of spending money. Now the twinges in the chest and the calf pain are back. The chest pain is the most prevalent but at my new job even today my right calf stated hurting. I’d give everything to just feel normal again and not have what my logical brain says is anxiety and depression. But that crazy part of me always assumes that this breath I’m taking is going to be my last. It’s like I’m dying without a choice.

My health anxiety is bad at the moment too. It wears me out.

Also, stress and anxiety can cause muscle tension. It may be what’s causing your issues. I doubt for your age you have anything to worry about with your heart.

Yeah the logical part of me knows it but that little crazy part of me gets in the way
