So yesterday I had real bad pain on my left side. It felt like the pain was behind the rib cage (like deeper inside the body if that makes sense). I took some tylenol and the pain calmed down. This was around 6pm.or so.
Around 11pm the pain came back and felt even worse. I took some more tylenol around 1pm after I ate. Then I spent the next couple hours feeling nauseous. I think it's because of what I ate somehow or that I caught a stomach bug. I don't feel as bad today though nausea wise and never did get sick.
My question is when anxiety can mimic the symptoms of a heart attack, how do you convince yourself it's not one or how do you really know for sure without running to an ER in a panic? I mean, I've had multiple ekgs, blood work, chest xrays, one ct scan, and a stress test done over the past few months and all come back normal. The nauseous feeling almost pushed me into running to an er but I didn't. I had no fever and blood pressure was fine.
