So a couple of months ago i took myself to A&E with what i thought was a heart attack - chest pain and breathlessness, and sheer panic! This happened twice, i was told everything was fine - and have since been diagnosed by my doctor as suffering from anxiety.
This is all very new to me, ive never had it before - and it coming on all of a sudden has frightened me. Since I was diagnosed with anxiety i have had a major case of gastrisis, which thankfully is now on its way out.
Today i have noticed myself getting worked up, and slightly breathless again, I have taken the propanamol which my doctor prescribed (which have been working fine) but today they just dont seem to be working fully, granted im not having a full on panic attack but im frightened inside and feel slightly breathless.
I know its all in my mind, but it feels so real.
Does anyone have any coping strategies for this? Or any ideas as to why this has just started. I was having a stresssful time in my life when it started, so ive put it down to that.
I'm meant to be going abroad on holiday next weekend for a week, and i'm terrified this will happen abroad - so much so, im debating whether or not to even go!
Please someone help, i cant cope feeling like this anymore.
