Hi. I am a 13 year old girl (too young to be worrying about things like this) & I am a hypochondriac. I worry about my health (specifically my heart) way to much. A few weeks ago I had a pressure over my heart. It went away eventually but it led for me having anxiety. I went to the doctors and they did a blood test and an EKG. Both came back normal. I fear i have Arrhythmia. I have an obsession with checking my pulse every 5 minutes. Symptoms I have are lightheadedness, shortness of breath, feeling out of touch with myself, feeling like I may faint. I have never had anything wrong with my heart in the past but my anxiety keeps making me think something is horribly wrong. My pulse goes from very strong to very light, almost as if you cant feel it. I am afraid I have an irregular heartbeat but I know if I did, the EKG would have proved that. I feel as if since my appointment was weeks ago, something may have developed over the time until now. If any body can hep with this please reply or message me.
