I just found this thread this evening as i am dealing with anxiety. It all started about a month ago. My mom and my two siblings came down to visit and my 2 year old got sick and it was horrible. I couldn't sleep I was having major indigestion which then lead me to believe I was having a heart attack. And then... I googled. I was convinced I was going to have a heart attack. I can be talked down when I have a panic attack but this time my brain would not let go of the idea of a heart attack. I went to the DR they tried two different types of antidepressants but they made me feel funny. Which i am not really having to take meds. She then sent me to a counselor which i really do like. I've been going for 2 weeks now. I had lost the idea that I was going to have a heart attack but then I was on social media and someone posted an article about how to recognize a heart attack 30 days prior and what did I do, i clicked it and read the symptoms. So now naturally I now have these same exact symptoms. For week now it's all I can think about. I have indigestion and the pain raidiates between my shoulder blades and I have some random chest pains. I keep talking to my husband who does not have anxiety issues and he just doesn't get it. He tells me you aren't having a heart attack your fine. And it's not that deep down I know I'm not but my mind and anxiety have this control over me. Oh. When I did go to the doctor she did say that my heart sounded great. But I still worry. I just want to be able to talk to someone who knows exactly what I'm feeling instead of everyone who just looks at me and says well just stop thinking about it 😔
