      Hi John,

      You sound just like me. Ive had all those symptoms you are mentioning and still do. I've had them since February. I've had multiple EKG. An echo. And this Thursday I have an Stress Test. I've gone to 2 cardiologist. They both said it's not my heart. One of thhem told me it might be stomach issues. So if they both said it's not my heart thenm it's probably not. If I don't stop worrrying about it I'm not gonna lI've a normal life. I bet your fine. I have my good days and bad days. And I'm still kicking and breathing.

    Hi I get all your symptoms you have listed these started a month ago when I think the worst of my anxiety started I'm was sure I was very ill but I'm still here and feel much better just get the odd symptom known again but yes I do understand how you feel. I had an anxiety attacks this afternoon and all them symptoms you explained I had, I have Still got chest pain and back pain now. At first I was worried as it all came on at once and was bit worried as all pain was on one side. Hope this helps.

    All your symptoms could be anxiety and stress. The pain in your chest and under armpit could be gas...very painful. When we are highly stressed our digestive system shuts down to some extent, so food is not digesting, and that equals gas.

    Having said that, so that you will know whats wrong (not knowing is the scariest part.) You should have a full check up, and or go to a psychiatrist for an anxiety eveluation. Psychiatrists are also medical doctors. Honey, you really need an experts answer on what it is.

    We are and will be here to help, encourage, and cheer you on with ideas on how to help yourself....once we all know what it is.

    In the meantime, get some chamomlle to to calm you down. (a great natural safe sedative (unles you allergic to the ragweed family of plants). Do some natural breathing, get at least a little exersize, drink plenty of water, eat lightly and try not to worry while you wait for your doctor's appt. A big hug to you, John

      Yes you are, and I am proud of you.

      The same way some people have to learn to have a full life in spite of diabetes, heart murmer, thyroid problems, a gimpy leg, etc., we here need to learn how to have a full life with anxiety. That's the real goal...how do I go about really living my life. Everyone here is doing that very thing...learning.

      If you take the time to scroll through other discussions you will learn a lot, as well as here. We have experiences, can uplift and support each other, teach and learn from each other, and just plain be here for each other.

      Glad you are here, Pamela, honey.wink
