I'm 26 years old, 165lbs (and slowly dropping weight) and diagnosed with G.A.D.
Starting from the beginning, I had a bad panic attack about two weeks ago that landed me in the hospital for a possible heart attack (Thankfully it wasn't) and I've been worried about my health ever since. I've had aches and pains all over my body, as well as what I believe were heart palpitations, but those were split-second, and I've also experienced a slight lack of balance when I move, but that's mostly when I'm at work. As for my body, I've mostly felt these on my left side, from my chest to my arm, down to my leg but they were split-second sensations and I could replicate them when I pressed on them. All of my bloodwork (D-Dimer, complete metabolic panel), EKG's and Xrays came back negative for heart attack or blood clot, but even after that I'd still feel aches and pains, like I had a blood clot traveling through my body. After I calmed down I felt yet ANOTHER sensation while at work today: It was like a very VERY subtle weight in the right side of my face, but no facial drooping, no severe balance issues, no slurred speech, and this sensation lasted all day. About two weeks after I started exercising the weather took a turn for the worse and as such I haven't been able to exercise outdoors, but I've noticed this week that I have a dull muscular ache running from the base of my spine down my thigh and calf, but no symptoms other than that. I've been working on exercising more and eating healthier, but I really don't want to go to the ER again, especially if it's just anxiety or stress-related. I don't want my poor eating habits to come back to bite me either, especially when I'm just now trying to get better. I just need reassurances that what I'm experiencing is stress/anxiety-induced and not an aortic aneurysm.
