I'm so sick of this I really dont know what's wrong with me .. I can't handle this no more , right now I'm getting chest pains its on my left side and it's kinda stabbing I keep saying this is just anxiety ! But I don't get how it is how can anxiety cause you to have pain in your chest for no reason there must be a reason:( .. The top of my leg and my groin have been hurting for other a week now I think it's a blood clot in my leg but I will never know. I feel really hot right now and this stabbing pains in my chest are making my heart beat fast. My family are so sick of me they don't even support how I feel or anything. Why every pain I get do I feel like I'm going to die I'm got the obbsession and I can't get out of it. I am in my bedroom 24/7 I don't go out because if I even go to the shops I feel like I can't breath and I get really panicky people just look at me weird. This has ruined my life and I really duno how to shake it off . No matter how much reassurance I get its just not enough to stop me feeling like this. I was suppose to go back to work this month? How can I? When I'm like this I can't. Maybe I just can't accept its anxiety and there's something seriously wrong with me .. I got to counselling about it I take medication nothing I mean nothing is helping I can't do this no more :(

  • The stabbing pains in the heart for me was acid indigestion, I really think you need tummy meds like pantoprozole or even try gaviscon

  • It's so so horrible I hate it :(. I have gaviscon and stomach tablets

  • I'm 62, but when I was 18 I had my first panic attack - I took measles which hit me badly and I had other stressors going on, too. I had all the chest stuff, tightness, pain, palpitations and the 'can't take a breath' symptoms. I was due to start a new job after just leaving school. I used to go to see my doctor on a regular basis to tell him there was something wrong with my heart. He would continually tell me it was anxiety - and he was right. The anxiety eventually subsided as I began to enjoy life, meeting new friends, going out etc. I didn't realise it had gone until one day I just didn't feel any symptoms or feel panicked. It did raise it's head a couple of times in my life but that's because of the way I think and deal( or not deal) with life issues. I want to say, please believe and accept that your symptoms are a result of a nervous system which is under pressure and the attention you give to them. Try to do things you want to, live your life and it will go.

  • What is measles.. Yeah I get it to you feel like you can't breath like your suffocating, I constantly get it and think I'm going to have a heart attack.. My worst is a bloodcclot that's going to travel to my lung :(. I'm glad your better now x

  • Measles is a viral infection, usually contracted in childhood. It can cause damage to hearing and eyesight but children are usually vaccinated, these days, so it's not common now. I understand the feeling of suffocation. I once took myself to the emergency dept. when I couldn't get a breath - typical anxiety response. When you lose focus on your breath it will self-regulate. I recovered when I was affected by anxiety years ago but it has come back because of many stressors in my life - mainly family responsibilities but it makes me dizzy and off-balance. Very difficult to deal with. I try to just get on with things knowing that if I accept it and not fear it, it will go. x
