constant/everyday chest pain and shortness of breathe... normal?

Posted , 12 users are following.

I'm 21, suffer from anxiety and panic disorder to say the least. Apparently I'm depressed too. I've been waking up with pain in my chest and feeling short of breathe for about almost a week. I've gone to the ER almost every time and get x rays and EKG's done and they always come back normal.

I wake up and go to sleep with a fear that I'm going to die.

The last time I ate was Friday, it's now Sunday and I don't feel hungry at all. I just feel like I'm about to die.

Why? What do I do? Am I dying?

      Mrs. wife,

      I'm experiencing the same since wednesday night - I am new to all of this.. i don't even know if it's anxiety or panic attacks anymore.. i feel like I can't breathe for the past 4 damn days..... and no, I'm not on medications. I don't even know if that seriously even works, I dont want to depend on it cause I was literally normal before wednesday and now I'm experiencing this.. i feel like im about to go crazy too.... what have you been doing? you are not alone... we should stay positive. im only 20

      also, Ive been so emotional to almost everything and sensitive to whatever people say. i went to a clinic and they said i was fine. it was just an anxiety attack but i feel otherwise... i think the best thing for me and you is to keep our minds occupied and think positive.. im going to try and start meditating. we should help each other... the only reason why i signed up was i saw your post and I feel like i really need help or talk to someone who knows exactly how i feel..

      I've been suffering from this for the past month. I've always had anxiety but never to the point where it's every day, I don't want to eat or sleep. I don't even want to drive I can't even be the mother I need to be. I have gone to the ER 8 times this past month because of the chest pain and feeling like I can't breathe. I can't even focus on anything other than the anxiety anymore. I just want my sanity and happiness back. It was a relief to see you have experienced the same things. I feel like no one understands! My heart hurts that I can't be the person I need to be for my family and my own well being. I hope you feel better!!
