Does anybody have a fear of having a heart attack? I have always been aware of bodily sensations such as heartbeating and pay attention to when it quickens or is too slow. If I get chest pain , my first thought is my heart. I have had an ECG which was fine but worry it is unreliable as I have heard this before. I also get palpitations and pain in my shoulders and neck which I interpret as signs all is not well. I am aware that muscle pain and anxiety can mimic these symptoms yet I always think the worst. Doctors over the years look at me like I am a hyperchondriac which yes I can be but even when I am happy and not dwelling on any of this I can still get symptoms which start the worry again. Help anyone who relates to this thanks x
