Hello, not wishing anything bad on anyone but yet hoping someone has my issues that I can may be learn from.For about 3 years now I have had what I would describe as chest discomfort. Its not really pain, just tightness or a feeling of a pinch or bruise just odd feeling usually in the center tho can be a little to left or right. I was so scared when this startd happening after months of almost daily of this I made an appointment The Dr just started asking me questions like do I seem to cry easy, stuff like that. My answers were yes. He prescribed me prozac, I said so u think nothing is wrong with my heart? He said no, its anxiety/panic attacks. I have always been prone to depression but the depression became worse when I started having all this but I got the script and after only a few days I had to stop, I got almost every side effect it listed. Dr switched me to celexa, I picked it up but was just too scared after what I went through on the other. The aniety I was diagnosed with I could definately tell, but only reall since I went to the Dr and took that prozac. If I thought I had weird feelings in my chest before, I really had them now. One day after a bad nihght, I asked for an EKG they said it was fine. I went to a second Dr, he diagnosed me with the same thing. Panic attacks & couldnt understand why I refused prescription.I have the doom and gloom feelings come over me but to me I do because of the chest issue, the Drs say I have the chest issues because Of my panic attacks. Anyway, on my own without drugs, I have continually worked at trying to change my outlook on life, brought religion back in my life, and constantly having to conquor my fear of a heart attack coming and happening. after about a year I guess I started going through menapause I stopped having my period.The chest issues have gotton better and isnt constant but yet appears almost daily for periods of time. Its been about 3 years now and while I am better, I still can not get over the fear of something bad wrong.Does this sound familiar to anyone? I am sorry to go on for so long but I wanted to cover as much as I can. Thanks in advance for any reply and/or information oh I do want to add for the past 2 or 3 months I have been getting quick like flutters in my chest and what I believe is my heart, I never had that before.
