Hello! So a couple of weeks ago I had my first ever panic attack. I've been dealing with a lot of stress the past couple of years and I'm generally a very anxious person. Anyway, for a few days after the 'attack', I felt as if my heart was going to beat out of my chest. I was checking my pulse every hour and could physically feel my heart beating. That went away after a few days and now for about a week, I've been having these awful pains in my chest on the left side. It started last Monday night when I was going to bed. It first hurt when I was breathing in - like a sharp pain. I woke up the next morning and the whole day was just awful. I was freaking out. All I could think about was my chest pain and wondering what was wrong with me. I kept thinking I was dying and getting so emotional about how people would handle it and just... freaking out. I've had varying types of pain since - sometimes it's a tightness, sometimes it's a sharp pain, sometimes it's lower and sometimes it's higher. I am so scared!! Anyone have the same thing?
