I've always been a pretty anxious person and worried a bit more about my health than most, but after having my daughter 8 months ago things have just spiraled out of control! I'm 30 years old and am terrified almost every minute of everyday that im going to have a heart attack. I've been to the ER about 7 times the last few months for chest pain & after countless ekgs, bloodwork, xrays, stress test..they never find anything wrong. I just can't seem to believe that its just anxiety though! Im alwys getting pounding heart, skipped beats, and just a general uncomfortable feeling. Im scared to death of being alone with my daughter because of all the symptoms that I get, im terrified of something happening to me while we're alone. The doctor told me that my risk for heart attack is basically 0..but the minute I get a chest pain I think the worst and assume I am having a heart attack. How can I get over this and be normal again?
