The title pretty much sums it up. I have a fear I'm going to have a stroke or I've already suffered a mini \ silent stroke. This all started in March / April when i started getting neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, trouble concentrating. More recently I've felt more saliva in my mouth and my toung feels wierd or irritated. This has made me feel like I'm slurring words or effecting my speech. I'm now hyper aware of my speech. I also get face tightness and sometimes a dull feeling.
I keep checking my face, smile, and pupils in the mirror. I keep convince myself my left side is slight lower it does y line up perfectly. I ask my parents and brother when I see them if my face looks normal and my speech sounds normal. I feel like I'm going crazy! Sometimes I feel like I'm not going to be able to speak but then when I need to answer I can.
PS I'm 28, nornal cholesterol, blood pressure, heart rhythm, and I'm not diabetic. I don't have any family history of heart disease or stroke. I work out 5 times a week and walk multiple times a day. I was diagnosed back in 2014 with GAD and Panic disorders took Zoloft for a few months and then felt okay again. Then I was worried about my heart, now it's stroke. I don't know if my anxiety is back, or there is something wrong with me.
