So earlier I was walking outside up a hill, not to steep, and I am in shakpe, so shouldn't be a big deal. Then I was breathing a bit harder and felt like my heart did a flipped beat, I get this sensation often unfortunately. Have been checked for all possible heart ailments, done CBT, do the deep breathing, avoid all caffeine, exercise, and still this ridiculous feeling now that I am in the middle of a heart attack. I (think) I know that I'm not, but I recently read this article that said most women do not experience heart problems like men and that they should trust their instincts if they think something is wrong. But, I feel like I cannot trust myself because I am usually wrong, i.e. it's not a heart attack. But I cannot shake that nagging feeling that this time, it's something real. I hate this anxiety so much. I feel like my body just betrays me at every turn even when I work so hard to think it through and be rational.
It's the what if it is something THIS time that has me wholly upset now.
Just wanted to vent. Maybe someone else has some words of encouragement or has felt the same? Thanks.
