I'm 37 years old and I had my first panic attack 3 years ago and everything has gone down hill from there. Every ache or pain I get I think I'm dying. My dad passed away from heart complications so from then on I'm always thinking I'm going to have a heart attack. I can't sleep, I barely eat, and work is very hard at this point. Im afraid to go to the Dr in fear of them telling me something I don't want to hear! I suffer from hypertension and that's the only thing I see my Dr. for. I've had other test done but I still feel so hopeless and afraid! I've become a recluse.
