Hi. I'm a 24 year old woman. I been suffering from anxiety and anxiety/panic attacks for 2 months now. It's the most scariest thing I have ever experienced in my life. One day I was doing my normal day to day things when suddenly I felt a pressure go to my head as if it were to explode. And suddenly I felt some chills go through my body making me feel weird. And all of a sudden my heart started to race and beat so hard. I thought to myself IMA die of a heart attack. I felt numbness and tingly all over my body. I felt like I couldnt breathe. My body was so shaky. I thought I was going to pass out or something. I felt so cold and my hands were twitching. Someone called the ambulance because they saw i wasnt good. The ambulance came so fast did a quick ekg. Took my bp and said i was having an anxiety attack. I didnt believe them and told them to pls take me to the hospital. The docs told me the same. They took an ekg and said it was normal. Plus the fact that im only 24 years old and it was very very unlikely for it to do with my heart. And that's when it all started. 2 months ago. Now I can't go a day without having at least one symptom of anxiety. I been to the ER so many times and all they tell me is its just my anxiety 😖ive also been to my cardiologist since I wasn't convinced it was just anxiety. They did a echo cardiogram, 24 hour monitor, stress test, and ekgs and blood work. Everything was fine. Only thing I have is arrythmiabut the doctor told its nothing to worry about and it had nothing to do with my anxiety. Other words, my heart is fine. Yet I am still not convinced for some reason. I was at the ER 2 days ago because I felt my heart flutter. Like if my heart skipped a beat or jumped or idk but it felt weird. And they did a chest xray and a EKG. And some blood work to check my thyroid and electrolytes level. Everything came of normal. They took me to speak to a phsyciatrist in the ER and she said I need to see a phsyciatrist and a therapist. I been having on and off symptoms everyday. Mostly chest pain sometimes right in the middle, or on my left side, or on my right or all over. And its driving me nuts. I also have this weird burning sensation like a heart burn. Plus heart flutters at least once or twice a day. I am so scared I can't go out no more. I don't do the things I used to because of fear of getting an anxiety attack outside. I'm afraid to be alone. The other day i woke up all good and everything when all of a sudden i had thoughts in my head saying ima die. Man did those scare the hell out of me. The phsyciatrist in the ER told me that those thoughts are because of so much fear i have inside me due to anxiety. 😢 iam so drained. Iam mentally tired and physically too. My family is so tired of hearing about this. I really don't have no one to talk to. Only one friend but she's always busy. And my boyfriend just doesn't understand. He thinks I'm over exaggerating and tells me to stop it or to snap out if it. As if it were to be that easy. Psshh. I wish. I am not on any meds because I am a paranoid person and very hypochondriac thinking the meds are going to harm me. I have my first physciatrist appointment this Tuesday. I'm hoping I can get over this soon. Because I'm going craazzzyyy. What are your thoughts about this. ANXIETY oh no anxiety? I am still having a hard time being convinced its just anxiety. 😖😖 it feels so physical too especially those heart flutters making me think my hearts going to stop. Ugh please tell me I'm not the only that gets these. I am so scared😱
