I've hit my lowest point in my life and I really don't see any hope anymore. For almost a year now, I have struggled with this mystery illness that I cannot get any answers too. I have been to the ER over 6 times, I've been to my primary care doctor at least 10, and seen countless numbers of speacialists. I am convinced I am going to have a heart attack. I am a 21 year old female who constantly is in fear now. I went from healthy and happy to bed ridden and in fear in a matter of hours. My heart skips beats, my chest is tight, I'm dizzy and lightheaded, I have pain down my arms and legs (mostly left), the left side of my face gets a funny feeling, I get random sharp back pain, sharp jaw pain, vomiting, numbness, head prsssure, loss of motor control in my hands, and diharrea. I know I should listen to the doctors considering they haven't found anything, and by now I think a heart attack would have happened considering it's been 11 months since this started happening, but I can't shake this feeling of impending doom coming. I've heard these are panic attacks and all anxiety related and recently I have been seeing an eastern medicine doctor who told me he doesn't see anything wrong with my heart but diagnosed me with liver stagnation. However, I know the symptoms of a heart attack, epescially in women, and mine line up all too well, especially this last episode I had two days ago where I was driving and all these symptoms hit me. My family is already financially struggling after all my tests and doctor/hospital visits so I really can't go anymore, but I am scared. I am scared I am scared I am scared. I am still having all these symptoms now and I can't shake them. I just need to know if I'm going to make I through this or my heart is going to give out. No tests have pointed to anything, but what if it was something small 11 months ago but now it's something big....I've tried everything but heart attack is in my mind especially because all the symptoms I have line up perfectly. Please help me. I am beyond scared.
