I'm new here, but I came across this forum and I'm hoping to get a some help or advice. I've was diagnosed with Health Anxiety years ago and I'm in constant fear that my heart is damaged and I'm going to have a heart attack. I'm 23 years old and not the healthiest, and for the last 3 days I've been having these very short, but vert scary sudden "stab" pains in my chest. They come and go in a matter of seconds, and only in short intervals, like 3 and no more. It happened just this afternoon, but now I feel fine, if not worried. Last Christmas, I went to hospital with the fear that I was having a heart attack. They did two ECG tests on me and both times I was told that my heart was okay, and that it was my anxiety. That was months ago, though and this pain is new. I'm worried that my body is telling me that I'm on the cusp of something bad happening.
I've booked an appointment with my doctors on 20/10/2014 (I couldn't get any earlier :< ) but i'm wondering if anyone else here has ever dealt with this? or, if anyone know's/has an idea of what it could be?
