Okay, so kinda long story. It started back when I was a Sophmore in Highschool, I have now been graduated for about 3 months. But, anyways, I would get this tight feeling in my chest, it bugged me and would freak me out. The only way it would feel better would be if I slouched on my chest or layed down on it, basically put pressure on it, I guess. I don't know if I would freak out over the tight feeling on my chest, but I''d start sweating and feeling hot, then I would get dizzy and woozy. I also had problems eating, and my chest would feel tight when i swollowed. So I finally decided to go to the hospital, I was in the ER and I told them my symptoms and they didn't find anything. They told me my heart was healthy and that probably just had anxiety. So it calmed me to know that apparently "nothing was wrong". So I started to feel better and my symptoms were easier to control, but through time my symptoms started changing, they were way less rough but instead of chest tightness it's now like a sharp pain in my chest, usually the left side. So when the symptoms started to change, I went for another check up at the doctors. And once again, they told me my heart was completely healthy, it was like a clinic, the only thing that was wrong with me was that my iron was a little too low than it should'be been. So I was like okay, cool I guess. And well my symptoms come and go, that was about a year ago and the symptoms are finally back. It really disappoints me because I want to join the marines, my running was fine for a long time and all of a sudden, about a week ago, I start getting sharp pains on my chest when I run. I get paranoid and stop running because I'm scared I'll collapse or something. I really don't want to go back to the doctors and look dumb again. They never find anything, so I wanna know if this does sound like anxiety to you guys ? I really need to proceed in my career.
