So scared!!!!!

Hi guys. I'm not doing as good today came home from work yesterday with the sorest of throats and my chest was all painfull too..last night I couldn't sleep as you know when you have the flu or something it always seems to get worse at night. Well mine was awful the pain in my chest was the worst Ive ever experienced in my life I woke my husband to tell him but he didn't seem to really care I told. Him about my chest pain he told me to go to sleep I was so upset I remember a year ago or 2 ago he had chest pain and I rang for a paramedic and he was rushed into hospital with suspected heart attack luckily he didn't but I reacted quickly because I don't think you can mess with the chest and heart even if it is anxiety any warning should be dealt with. Anyway it took hours to settle down and I finally fell asleep but woke up all panicky and anxious Ive also just read in the news a young woman came home from work on Wednesday with "flu like" symptoms and by Friday she died of meningitis 😩😩 I'm now panicking like nobody's business Ive got the hot sweats and major panic galore now and I feel so ill aswell completely convinced myself Ive got meningitis or something serious does anyone else have this please help xxx

  • I am in a similar situation. I read an article on fb. And it's sent my anxiety into never drive. Around here our weather can't make its mind up and everyone has been sick. Your correct flu does get worse at night. So you're feeling you're worse and your mounds won't shut off. I'm almost sure you don't have meningitis. They thought my son had it when he was having seizures. Chest pain isn't something to play with but just sit down alone in a room or by whatever your calmer is and inhale 4 exhale's something I have to do to get me through the day

  • *mind

  • AshleyG88 thanks so much I know I haven't got meningitis but cuz of my health anxiety it's scared me thank you so much for your advice I will do this thank you for your support feels good to know your not alone xx

  • it may be heartburn; when i first got it, i thought i was having a heart attack! You are not alone; you may be starting to get a bad cold/ virus; drink water, rest; try some relaxation methods and have a nice warm bath tonight before bed. I hope the pain has now stopped; if such pain persists call your GP or even 999 if you really feel there is a genuine problem; actually either way you could book an appointment at your doctors for a check up/ put your mind at ease ; slightly umsympathetic re your hubbie x
