Hi everyone i'm a new boy on here suffering really bad at the moment. My amazing wife posted a blog a few months ago asking for some advise so here we go i thought i would let you guys in on whats been going on. I have just been through the worst 12 months of my life starting with the loss of my legendary father my hero he was & i loved him so much i still can't believe he has gone & it doesn't take a lot for me to get upset even 15 months down the line. I am the type of person that does worry quite a lot i soon get stressed if there is something on my mind i loose sleep & go off my food i've also got a stressful job Its all happened to much all together & i've boiled over just can't take any more. My wife recently having a major operation not knowing if she had cancer or not until after the operation, family betrayal which has really opened my eyes i'm wounded inside don't think i can ever forgive & forget. I felt myself starting to feel unwell chest pains which really freak me out, hot sweats, heart racing as if i was going to have a heart attack. when i closed my eyes at night in bed i got this overwhelming feeling of fright as if i was going to get knocked over by a car would be the best description. I had a couple of nights where the chest pains were so bad we were so close to calling 999. My doctor thinks my symptoms are due to all the stress over the last year building up until now ive boiled over. I get panic attacks where i can't concentrate & have to go somewhere quiet & sit or lie down. I am still undiagnosed as yet i should get diagnosis next week but its looking like stress & anxiety i've recently had a 24hr heart monitor fitted hopefully that will come back clear. Do you guys suffer from chest pains due to stress & anxiety it would feel much better to know 'im not alone. All the best to you hopefully with one another's help we can overcome this horrible condition. littleosca .
