For starters I am a healthy young 30 year old male. About a year an a half ago I under went several heart tests. I had sworn I had a problem. Little did I know it was anxiety. Even when I came to terms with the fact that I had anxiety I still refused to believe that didn't have a heart issue. Needless to say, all tests (EKG, holster monitor, stress test, chest X Ray, blood work, and echocardiogram) came back normal. I was told I had a perfectly strong healthy heart. Since then my anxiety towards my heart went away. However recently, in the past month I've out of the blue started experiencing heart palpitations where it feels like my heart skips a beat. It comes and goes and sometimes is short lived, other times stays a while. Of course as with any anxiety you begin to make the problem get even bigger. Now experience slight chest pain. Light headedness, all the trademark anxiety symptoms. I'm almost certain it's just anxiety trying to come back, especially seeing as I had all those test not that long ago. But yet there's that little nagging thought that makes me think it's more than anxiety. That a heart condition has developed in that short period of time since I was tested. Is that even possible? I keep having this fear that I'll drop of a heart attack or something else. I guess I'm here just to vent and see what feedback I can get from people who can relate to this.
