hello! I'm new here

so I'm not too sure whether I comment on the question or a post so I'm just going with the flow at the moment!

basically, I get a lot of pain in my jaw, my left arm, my back and in my chest and upper abdomen.. I've gone to multiple doctors and they all said I'm fine, that my heart is fine and my lungs are fine, I'm currently seeing a cardiologist as well and so far from a heart ultrasound he said everything is fine..

so I guess I assumed my pain was caused from the stress of anxiety, but from all that reassurance I have felt a lot better but the pains still come on randomly even when I'm at my most relaxed state, at times I'd even be woken up from sleep from the aches and pains...

I guess all this pain that comes and go have brought on my anxiety and I'm constantly afraid of having a heart attack!! I'm still very young, I'm only 19, turning 20 in a couple of days!

but really, just here posting how I feel! I am literally so sick and tired of these pains I get, I've had them for 2 months now and I just want to be the old me again that never got these strange aches/pains..

right now I'm literally freaking out, I get so short of breath too from the anxiety (I think) which makes me even worry about that it's definitely going to be a heart attack... I've also gotten my bloods done saying I have minimal amounts of cholesterol in my blood and I have normal levels of good cholesterol vs bad cholesterol so my chances of heart disease isn't high but yet I'm constantly worrying, I always think that "this is it, I'm going to die this time if I don't go to the hospital"

I also swear the doctors think I'm a freak, there was a doctor who completely thought I was crazy and was making up what I was feeling... it makes me feel even worse because if the doctors don't believe me, who will?

basically everyday no matter what I'm doing, somehow my mind will bring up the thought of having a heart attack, or I'd suddenly get pains and automatically go back to the conclusion of having a heart attack...

some days I'd literally break down in tears, I think from depression caused from the anxiety disorder I have.. it's just a vicious cycle I can't seem to get out of and I'm extremely scared of death, and my heart also has premature ventricular contractions, so the palpitations sure don't help with my anxious thoughts

  • I can totally sympathise with you I am the exact same! It's like u have taken the words out my mouth! I am only 23 and have been suffering with health anxiety since I have been 15 but I have been suffering really bad anxiety about my heart and head my heart more so as I watched my aunt take a heart attack and die infront of me so this has made me a million times worse! I have constant chest pain , back pain strange feelings in my heart as if it's just about to stop and I'm going to drop down and die. Dizziness right chest u name it I have it.. I am currently struggling with these symptoms at the moment and panicking deciding weather to go to a&e! The oh thing putting me off it's going and feeling like an idiot to be told everything is fine I just can't understand how anxiety can make u feel like this it's insane x

  • Hello cha I just wanted to let you know that your not alone in this. I have all the exact symptoms you do and yes it makes me absolutely crazy when my heart is doing all those crazy weird things from racing/pounding to palpitations and low heart rate chest pains. It's all very frustrating and terrifying I know. Try n hang in there as best you can

  • Hi and welcome

    It, s really weird what our minds can do to our bodies and how it makes us suffer . KEEP POSTING ON HERE as there is usually someone around with some friendly words. Has your doctor suggested going to see a therapist?
