The more you think about that sort of pain the more uncomfortable yo will feel.

If you have had all the tests, and the have proved you are ok, then you need to begin to calm yourself as if you do not you will feel worse than you really are.

Generally the tests they perform are very accurate and you need to understand if you cannot accept the problem does not exist you will begin to feel even worse.

Because you suffer from stress you will need to talk to your GP and He/She will be able to address your problem. Talk to yourGP

I have had all the same things done to me then I went to my therapist I have pts and general anxiety disorder it makes feel all the same things like a heart attack or stroke but it really bad anxiety try and find your triggers and then your outlets everyone diffent hope it start feeling better soon


Very familiar situation with me...its hard but I agree with the others, you have to find a coping mechanism to help, especially if you have been cleared medically. I continue to have some issues but once I get medical clearance, I will be teaching myself these same techniques. I wish you all the best!
