I have been particularly stressed recently and have suffered with severe anxiety for around 10 years. Last Thursday I was in bed and felt a sharp pain in my chest, had palpatations my heart was racing and I went clammy. I have TMJ from brutish/teeth grinding, and convinced myself that the jaw ache must be a heart attack symptom. I coughed and spoke to my partner to see if my voice came out okay and it did. I still panicked and my head started to spin and I was sick. The pain in my chest subsided quickly when I led down but I was not panicking when the pain started (that I was conscious of).
Has anyone else experienced this? it was one of the worst panic attacks I have ever had and now every ache and pain I assume I am dying this is so scary
