It all started back in September when I was making a career move. I was at a friends house all of I started to feel funny. My chest started to feel really tight and all I wanted to do was get out of there. The rest of the night my chest was hurting and I went to the doctors the next day had a chest x ray, EKG, blood work and everything came back fine and he told me it was stress or anxiety. I never had anxiety in my whole life so I was kinda in shock when he told me. I felt better that I was healthy went back to normal until mid November when my Uncle passed away from Arota burst. All of sudden I felt like I was gonna die. I felt like I was going to have an aneurysm. I had a constant head ache. I kept checking my pupils. I felt it 24/7 for about a week. I kept researching it on the internet and it only made it worse. I was at work I thought I'd I go to the ER I'll feel better like I did when I went for my heart. So I left work went to the ER. Had blood work done and a CatScan and no problems. Doctor sent me home. But the systems didn't go away. After awhile the head aches stopped. Now I live in constant fear. Every ache or pain I think is the end. I avoid going places because I'm afraid of having an anxiety attack. Now for the first time my right cheek has been feeling like its dropping but when I check if it's not. I look in the mirror and it's fine and I can move my face normally. That triggered my chest to get tight and it's been tight for about 12 hours now. I know it's anxiety but I can't seem to shake the physical symptoms when they happen they last forever. I'm 22 male in general good health. I don't work out now but I was an athlete my whole life so still in okay shape for now. Does anyone know how to beat this? It's affecting my work life, sex life, and my life. I feel like I'm alone and will never get over this. I really just want to get back to being me again. Does anyone have any tips or tricks to stop the physical symptoms when they start to happen?
