    I also have an intense fear of issues related to the heart. Every little pain I think is an impending heart attack. Today has also been bad for me. Have you been checked by a doctor? If so, just relax.. What do you like to do? Maybe work out, draw, do anything to keep your mind calm.

    Hi mate I know what your going through. It's horrible. I had a trainer and every time my heart went up I had to stop. How long have you had anxiety and panic? Do you take any medication for it?

      Well that's a good sign, usually they will be in the left or center of chest if it was anything to worry about.. Probably just some muscular aches. When I get stressed, my chest walls swell. Apparently very common

      How long have you had anxiety and panic attacks? Have you ever heard of zoloft/sertraline it's a really good medication. I have terrible health anxiety every day but this medication is good. Do you mind me asking what country your in? New Zealand here.

    Every thing that you're feeling is normal when it comes to suffering from anxiety. How do I know? Because I've suffered with anxiety for nearly half my life. Anything that I did was focused around my heart health. Even though my heart was healthy I feared that doing any kind of exercise or even running would get it going too fast or would cause me to have a heart attack. Believing in that was the biggest mistake of my life. Because if I knew then what I know now I probably never would have suffered for so long. And what I know now is that I didn't want to accept my thoughts were what was causing ALL the physical symptoms of my anxiety!! Yes my thoughts!! But once I started to accept that the doctors just may be right and the numerous blood tests and EKGS coming back normal time and time again that it was ANXIETY my symptoms started to disappear. I learned that just because I thought something didn't mean it was real or going to happen. It was nothing more than just a thought in my mind. Do you mind if I ask you when and where this health type anxiety started? Because you noted that you used to be confident.
