I have just been looking through the posts on Anxiety, and just cant help having to give you my experiences and maybe someone will be kind enough to reassure me.
I have been suffering with what my GP calls Anxiety, my symptoms seem very similar to all those I read here...chest pains, lightheaded, palpitations, and the dreaded feelings of ''I am having a heart attack', I am dying and all the test results that I have had, that are all clear, are actually wrong ! so why wont someone listen to me. I guess I had best go to A & E yet again, just in case this is the real one !
And, what about my family, my little ones, what about those one I am going to leave behind, the tears , the sadness, the endless questions, wheres mum ?
Funny thing is, if I occupy myself the feelings usually go away, I say usually. not always. I have been told its a chemical reaction in my brain that starts a chain reaction, oh oh , so chest pain, cant breath, ah heart attack symptoms, its a vicious circle, round and round I go.
As I sit hear with my blood pressure monitor strapped to my upper arm, it reads normal, can this be, when I am having pains and strange sensation.
well I am at a loss.
How can I stop these feelings ?, i just want to lead a normal life and not worry.
I have been having these feelings for about 4/5 years surely if i had a dicky heart id be dead. doesn't help that my dad died at 56 of a heart attack.
I'd love to help you here, all of you that reply and say you feel the same, is there an answer for us all. maybe someone can help.
