Anxiety Support

Chest discomfort and feeling sick

Hi I'm 19 and a guy about 3 years ago I was sleeping and I felt this weird feeling in my arm my heart started racing and I panicked. i started having panic attacks everyday for like a month or longer after that's it's every symptom imaginable no breaks. The suffering was unbearable. I ended up going to the Er about 4 times in the the first month just to be told nothing was wrong with me and that my heart was fine. Even when I wasn't panicking or anxious at all the symptoms didn't go away!After a while I gave up hope and believed that I was going tonsuffer like this for the rest of my life. After about 6 months I started to ignore my symptoms and most of them went away except for this feeling that something is laying on my chest.

I ended up seeing a psychologist and got on meds at the end of the first year everything started. Now after 3 years Of feeling mostly normal except this feeling of something heavy on my chest I decided to get off the meds. But now I feel like it's starting all over again and I don't know if my heart can take the suffering again I'm so tired and weak I just don't feel right. I just need to know that other people understand me and im not the only one going through this. Sometimes I feel like I'm going through something that can't be just anxiety because I'm not even anxious every time I feel these symptoms.

I know exactly how you are feeling.. I have been going through the same thing for 6 months.. Non stop symptoms. Every physical symptom you can think of I have had. I try and try to ignore them but it's very hard. Most of them have went away I now just have the sharp pains in my chest and bad headaches. I have blood work done CT scans ekgs heart monitor and still they found nothing. I still feel like they are missing something. It's a living hell!!! I just want my life back. I don't enjoy doing anything I use to do anymore. I use to love going out now I barely go outside of my house. It's terrible and I just want it to end. Just know you are not alone...
