It started this morning on my way to work I just started having an anxiety attack. Then after being at work for about 30 mins I felt a sharp pain in the middle of my chest and started panicking again having an anxiety attack felt like I was boxed in at my little cubicle like I was claustrophobic. Eventually I calmed myself down. Then I got my kids from their grandparents and came home and I was okay for a little while then after about an hour or so I went upstairs to lay down I was exhausted after having panic attacks all day and was afraid of having another one. Then after a while I came back downstairs and made dinner, felt an anxiety attack coming on but again just tried to put my focus more so on making dinner and it went away. Then my husband came home from work, I finished up dinner, we all ate then I went upstairs again in fear of having another anxiety attack and my husband is less than supportive of these episodes, and I felt pain in my chest and started having another anxiety attack, I grabbed a zantax but didn't take it just calmed myself down, but I'm still holding onto it and every now and then I get a pain in my chest then it goes away because I keep trying to focus on me being okay rather than me having a heart attack and dying. I'm so afraid of those two things its constantly triggering these attacks. I panic because I am overweight and I think that everything is wrong with me. I've been to my primary doctor and she ran all kinds of blood tests n said I'm fine. I panicked so bad in November I went to the ER only to be told again that even though I'm overweight, I'm 27 and too young to be having heart problems and they did ct scans a chest xray and an ekg and found absolutely nothing. Sometimes I feel pain in my neck and I feel a fullness in my throat, this anxiety problem is miserable, there is nothing anyone can do and I'm scared all the time. I don't know what answers I'm looking for from here but I don't have anyone else to talk to so at least expressing my feelings to a group of people who are experiencing the same thing and understand how hard this is to deal with, makes me kind of feel better. But are these normal symptoms for anxiety attacks.
