OK so I'll start with the fact I suffer from Anxiety and Depression, I'm 25 years old, I've had numerous tests on my heart and all that sort of thing. It all keeps coming back fine.
My query is an issue I encounter the past week or so, Everytime I start to doze off to sleep I get this surge of fear, I mean it's hard to explain but I'll try.. I'll be laying there with my eyes closed and right at the point where I would fall to sleep I get a butterfly feeling in my chest or sometimes it's like my brain tells me my hearts gonna stop, as an example last night I had my hand on my chest and I dozed off and boom, just like that, I woke up with a gasp for air, my chest was trembling and I thought my heart was about to stop, this happened 7 times before I finally managed to sleep.
Through the day I get all these aches and pains over my body, I'm constantly walking round checking my pulse, the pains are mainly my chest, neck and left arm, not at the same time and it's not as much painful, more discomfort. I know my heart hasn't stopped, it goes without saying I wouldn't be checking my pulse if it had stopped but I'm getting so worried over literally nothing that it's affecting my day to day quality of life. I can't figure out what has triggered all of it either.
Does anybody else experience this or know what I'm talking about?
