I have been to the hospital emergency room 2 times this month with symtoms of heart attack:
Left Arm Pain
Some lower achy jaw pain
Back pain (between shoulders)
First time they hooked me up to heart monitor for the whole time I was there (9 hours) did blood test (2 of which were on my heart when I first got there, and another of the same test closer to when I left) they also did a chest xray and everything came back normal... they sent me home with 4 of .5 of ativan. BUT
ever since a little over a month Ive been having presistant chest pain and achy arm like it seems to always linger so I went back to the ER. This time they just hooked me up to heart machine thing for a few mins, did the same blood tests (2 on my heart) and made me wait for 6 hours for results which again came back normal. He prescribed me Effexor 75mg which I havent started yet.
I just dont understand why I am always in physical pain like most of the day every day. 3 or so years ago I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety disorder and had been to the hospital and had EKGs and they were also fine but the pain seems to be much worse this time.
Can my Anxiety disorder really be hurting me this much? If i was having a heart attack id never know because ive always been told its my anxiety / panic attack and when I do to ER for a bad attack thinking its a heart attack they always treat me like im crazy so now im scared to look for help. I am a 29 year old female but I am overweight and even still the doctors say I am a perfectly healthy 29 year old woman. Ughh I dunno so scary and frustrating. I wish my mind would just shut up!!
