Life for me lately has been full of symptoms and stress and as all of you already know those seem to be a vicious cycle that is difficult to break. Yesterday I experienced a new "symptom" I have been having sharp chest pains feels like someone is stabbing me with a hot poker right threw my heart the pain radiates up my neck and threw my jaw. I suffer from extremely high cholesterol so initially my family was very scared they took my into a local ER. However, with no testing having been done yet this young female doc walks in the room looks at my med list and says have you been taking you phsyc meds this is probably a result of failure to complain with those meds and you are having an anxiety attack. I got up and left...the pain is still there and it is extreme, now my left arm is numb from the shoulder down. Going to call the GP when they open just wondered how many of you have faced this type of reaction an what you have done about it? Seem like the world needs a better education of our disease... Tired of being treated like I am crazy and not sick.
