Hi M1987,

Sorry to hear your anxiety is giving you a tough time at the moment. The focus of my health anxiety is my heart too, so I know how much it can take over your mind and stress you out.

I find it useful to keep a little note on me with a list of points on it that I can get out and go over when I panic. It says things like 'I'm only 25', 'I've been checked out by 3 qualified GPs', 'My ECGs were fine' etc. It doesn't get rid of the anxious thoughts but it does help to remind me how irrational they are so I can put my fears back into perspective a little bit.

Hope your rough patch passes soon,

Emma xxx
