6 years ago i had an episode of anxiety it took be months to overcome. i went to various labs to get regular tests done( i suffer from hypothyroidism) a few days later wierd thoughts stared to run through my head, i thought i might gotten infected with hiv in one of those labs so i started to develop a panic attack, anxiety and depression. my psychiatrist put me under paxil and diocam i started to feel better so i stopped the medication also cuz the made me feel awful. so about to week ago i started to read and article about someone who had die of a heart attack or something like that and i started to develop a stong pain in my right leg then it just continue going up till my right arm and part ot the neck, it thought i was going to die i was really scared i could not sleep that night then during work the i felt i could not bearth and my chest was hurting i had nausea and my stomage was burning i thought i was having a heart attack i went to the emergency and had an ekg done which was fine then my blood pressure was 120/80. i went home and the symptons continued so i visited a cardiology and my blood pressure was 150/80. he put me under beta blocker and did and ecg everthyng eas normal except for a little change in my mitral valve he said it was benig and that it is diagnosed on most people(minutes before the exam i had a panick attack) anyways after those resultsi have been realy depressed because it just makes me feel like my life will not be the same again and i will alway live with the fear that something could happen to my heart. anyways, i will search for a second opinion when this crisis is over and will have the ecg redone with another doctor hopefully my heart and tenson will be stable. i done reaech that this condition is also congetial but i had an ec done when i was little by the same doctor and it was okay. so i dont understand what s going on. sorry my story is too long. also im not a native speaker so pardon my engish. grettings from the caribbean.
