Hi guys, Carly again. A few months ago I wrote a few posts about how my anxiety has been crazy scaring me due to these pains I have been having off and on. My anxiety was getting so much better since i started on a new medication (paroxetine) and I have been able to manage it pretty well for quite a bit! I have been a lot happier, but as of late the pains came back in my ribs & chest a little bit and I have been getting worried about them again. A few months ago, I went for an x-ray and It confirmed that everything was perfectly fine in my chest, but I still was left without any explanation or diagnosis. I am still pretty confident that I'm okay, but I don't fully believe that these pains are all from my panic or anxiety disorder even though that's what all of the doctors and therapists having been seeming to say. I just still don't feel right and I can't help but think that I'm just ignoring something that could be more serious. Of course i need to believe the professionals, but i just don't feel 100%. I can't really explain it. I'm trying to stay calm & don't think whatever is occuring is too serious as I would have problems breathing, moving, etc. I just don't want to live everyday having to deal with some type of pain & worry in the back off mind. Have any of you guys had pains in your ribs, back & chest off & on and worried that it was something serious? Thank you for your responses. ♡
