Another Late Night With Anxiety

meganhill395 profile image

Another late night. Chest and left arm pain.... They keep saying its just anxiety but it just doesn't feel like anxiety. How can an emotion cause such intense physical pain. So tired of hurting and so tired of being scared. I want my life back. Noting is helping. Tried CBD.... does nothing for the anxiety or the pain. Ive tried meditation and talking myself down. Nothing is making it better. It just comes out of no where. I'm not even upset and boom its back. It hurts so bad. I just want to know I'm ok. I'm not ready to die but i just feel like I'm going to anytime now. My mind tells me over and over that the heart doctor is missing something. I try to convince myself its just anxiety but then in the back of my head i have this small voice saying.... What if its not. You can't ignore this. Your body is trying to tell you something is wrong. I go back for more test the 21st and 27th more for my peace of mind says my doctor. I am so exhausted i just want to be ok 💔

Hi Megan - it's good you are going back to your doctor if you have chest and arm pain. Sometimes if you lie on your arm or shoulder, you can get neuralgia but may be you have

increased tension, with pain due to another cause. If you have BP checks that will reassure you - if you have need to back to your doctor earlier than your appointment - go back.

i know how you feel, these last couple days have been terrible, my left arm was hurting and my chest ALWAYS hurts. My anxiety always tells me that something is wrong but everytime i go to the doctor they find nothing. Anxiety & stress can really hurt your body physically and mentally. Try to think positive and just know there is people out there who are going through the same thing, we'll get through this.

Thank you so much. It really does help to know I'm not alone and that there's other people out there with these symptoms. Its so scary. Yesterday i told my heart doctor I TRULY THINK SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH MY HEART AND YOUR MISSING IT. He said ma'am I've been doing this for 30 years i promise u its not your heart. Its so scary cause all the symptoms are exactly what heart problems cause. Just tired and scared and tired of being scared. Best of luck to you. U can always message me if u need to chat.

I can relate to your post 100% like looking in a mirror. I get all the physical symptoms such as fast heart , skipped heart beats , chest pain and aches and pains out of the blue and just like you get told it’s the anxiety. I have good days and bad days. But now I’ve started to get muscle weakness / trembling / twitching when I engage my muscles or maintain a certain posture and shot scared it’s something like MS or Parkinson’s but after seeing specialists once again I’m told it’s anxiety and anxious nervous system. I’m like you as I just want to feel normal.

Wow i get the muscle twitches too. Like when your eye twitches but in your body. I get them in my arms legs chest stomach sides.... Its so scary. I get them in my chest and freak out. Its so scary. Just really hope its really anxiety. Lately i get this sharp pain in my back like right behind where my heart is located and a tight feeling around my wrist. I even get oike pins and needles poking me in my arms fingers and my elbow at times. I will be calm and trying to have a good day and not upset in any way and boom sharp pain in my chest follwed by tightness and shoulder pain and then it don't stop all night. Its been happening so long i am scared my body has become used to it and if something were truly to happen i wouldn't even realize its the big one. My family definitely doesnt understand. They all think I'm nuts but its real. The pain is absolutely 100 percent real. I never knew anxiety could cause all of this. Just praying thats what it really is. I'm absolutely exhausted with worrying about it. I'm not ready to die and now dying is all i think about. Its hard to explain without sounding completely insane. I'm sorry your going through these things as well but trust me you are not alone and i know just how hard it is. If u ever need someone to talk to I'm here. Feel free to message me anytime.

Although I think the same way as you there is light at the end of the tunnel. Your far from insane and I’m sure most people on here can relate. I get all the same as you and have done for the last 2-3 years and guess what ? We’re both still here and fighting on. Talk to someone and therapy helps too. I’m having a bad day today hence why I’ve ended up on here. The muscle weakness / trembling when lean down on my arm for example sets off my anxiety etc as I think it’s something that surely can’t be anxiety. Sharing your thoughts and taking advice will all help your recovery process.
