I'm now getting chest pains in the middle of my chest I'm considering going to a&e as I think I'm having a heart attack I'm scared don't know what to do

      Thanks for your reply yes sometimes my sharp pains then sometimes it's a different pain that I can't really explain! It drives me mad it's either a heart attack or a brain tumour!

      You know wat I think exactly the same as you but I think you would know about it if u had heart attack or even a brain tumor but I also understand that it's difficult especially when ur going through it you will be fine

      Thanks for your reply due to my anxiety I do not like to take medication because of the 'side effects' my doc did put me on citalopram I was on it for 4 days & the sides effects were horrific so I stopped taking them! I just wish there was a cure & I find it it takes over my life! My doctor tells me my heart is fine & it's unlikely for a 29 year old to have a heart attack! Wish I could just stop thinking like this! 😩
