Hey, this is my first post so please bear with me!
My anxiety has really escalated over the last 2 months to the point where I was having several panic attacks a day. I even went to the hospital to get checked out due to the chest pains but after 2 blood tests, an ecg and chest x-ray all was fine. I am a 20 year old female with good blood pressure and heart rate, no history of heart problems that I know of, balanced(ish) diet but little exercise recently. The hospital visit was over a month ago now and despite 4 separate doctors telling me I am fine and the physical symptoms I am feeling are the result of anxiety I just can’t stop worrying about having heart problems or a heart attack. I have ALL the symptoms of a heart attack (chest pain, nausea, arm pain, neck/shoulder pain, feeling like I can’t breathe, weakness etc) but I can’t convince myself that I. AM. FINE. I am so scared to sleep and then I’m relieved waking up in the morning that I’ve made it another day. I am terrified and things are starting to feel unreal and strange?
Are all these physical symptoms really anxiety? Do I go back to the doctor? I tried anti-anxiety meds and I didn’t react well so turned to therapy which helped for a few weeks and now it’s happening all over again.
Can anyone reassure me in any way or have any advice?
