Welcome to this site. You really are new to the forum. In a very short time you will see yourself in so many of the responses daily. You will get the support and confidence you need to deal with anxiety disorder. Having 3 little ones can certainly account for the pains in your chest and arms as you lift and carry the children each day. Your muscles don't really have a chance to relax and then you start to wonder if something is wrong. Your fear of medication is just another one of the symptoms of anxiety. Having children is a big responsibility that mothers have. Of course, your doctor is the one you should believe but sometimes it's just better hearing it from others who emotionally understand what you are going through. I wish you well and don't be afraid to reach out anytime, there will always be someone here to comfort you. I care x


My health anxiety started when I was pregnant and one of the scariest feelings in the world is you may die and leave your children. I live with this daily and its a struggle. I cannot give much advice as I am still struggling myself. However, although its hard to believe people know what your feeling, its a help to know that you arent alone in the health anxiety hell.
