So yeah, even though I may or may not have one, my anxiety has brainwashed me into thinking I have one. I now take propranolol tablets every day (they were prescribed by my doctor but only to relax me) because I have feelings of panicking so much, my heart will race until I have a heart attack if I don't. I feel vulnerable without taking any tablets so whenever I try to go somewhere without taking them, I'm afraid my body will malfunction or as I said earlier, my heart will beat uncontrollably til the worst happens! I can't help the feelings though! And I wonder, does thinking or believing I have a heart condition will actually give me one? I'm so scared now and I really didn't want this to happen in my life! The sad thing is, I've probably let anxiety damage me now.
Is this a common thing for someone with anxiety or hypochondria? Or have I really damaged my physical health? Thanks.
