Hi, I appreciate it if you take your time to read this
So ill start my story simply explaining my history, at age 16 i moved countries and lived alone and attended college; i was one of the youngest people in my college. i did not feel stressed and was happy. Now suddenly 2 years later (Iam 18), a day before coming back to Canada from holiday, i had an elevated heart rate, around 95-110 resting, it stayed with me during my 14 hour flight and the feeling did not subside when i arrived. So on the first day i arrived i went to the emergency room and did a CT scan, EKG and blood work, (my pulse was 150 at the ER and tingly hands). They gave me the all clear, i went home tried to relax but the feeling did not go away, so the next morning i went to another emergency room but they did not find anything, i did the same tests. i visited around 4 or 5 more clinics and doctors after that, i did an Echo and stress test and had a 48 hour holter test, it was all good apparently, i was prescribed Xannax (0.5mg), Ativan, and Serax (15mg) by different doctors but the feeling did not go away.. now im sitting here and wondering what could i possibly do to improve my "condition" and how come the anxiety medication didnt make me feel better? i should note that sometimes i feel like im short of breathe, miniscule weird pains in chest, sweaty palms and any sound scares me, i saw a therapist for 2 hours but she didnt help just made me talk and talk so i did not return. Did anyone ever experience this? and if so how long did it last? and how did you manage to fix it?
I greatly appreciate any support possible and thank you for reading my story.
