You've been very thoroughly investigated and assured all is normal.

Health anxiety frequently presents as chest pains and heart worries, so now you've gone through the heart investigations its time to concentrate on the anxiety treatments. Mindfullness, yoga, limiting worrying to set times each day, recording 3 positives every day, hand all your worries about the future to God - he will look after you and take away your worries if you let him

The more you think about it the worse it will get,I suffer from health anxiety,and for years I have thoughts of my heart stopping or having a stroke but I'm still here so deep down know nothing is wrong,ur brain is a powerful thing,it's telling u that u have a heart problem,so say back no I haven't as I've been checked out,don't let this ruin ur life,mine did for 3 years but slowly getting better now x

Just pass your worries to God for a month or so and see what happens. Don't see any more doctors, don't go to hospitals. You've done all that and it hasn't helped, so now youo need a different approach and that is to work on your behaviour

Johnnie, Goldfish is right. Pass your worries onto a higher power, whatever that might be for you. You need to learn to trust and believe again in what the doctors have told you. You have no life anymore unless something changes for you. You need to get rid of the "what ifs" in your way of thinking. Start using Affirmations telling yourself you ARE okay. When a thought or doubt creeps in, tell yourself, my doctor said I'm fine and that's what I choose to believe.

It's small steps Johnnie but eventually your mind will get it. Try to spend a few minutes deep breathing right now, while you let your worries go....
