I'm 24. Normal healthy guy. Recently getting chest pains. If describe them as short and stabbing. Today they seemed quite strong. Lasted about ten minutes and did scare me.
I do suffer from anxiety and anything to do with health just make me over think everything so here's me scared that I'm having a heart attack or one is going to happen.
I did see the doctor the other day who told me not to worry because he did his tests that suggest nothing more than muscle strain. He listened to my chest and did heart rate and oxygen levels and said it was perfect. I even had recent blood tests which all came fine. So I assume if something was up with my heart then this would tell them ?
I just worry so much about it so would just like some advice with what could be causing these pains. Are chest pains normal ? And how would I know of it was something serious ?
I have recently started taking propanolol 20mg for my anxiety. As and when needed and have to admit that my posture at work isn't great.
How can I get rid of these pains and how can I just try to relax ?
Any advice or personal experience would be much appreciated.
