I'm really curious... How many of you have health anxiety related to heart attacks? It seems like an extremely common issue. I wonder why so many of us immediately look to the heart as a fear.
I'm also curious to know how many of you that do have a fear of heart attacks have a family history of heart issues.. I have no family history on my moms side hardly (grandpa has a fib) and on my dads side, my grandma had a heart attack but she also smoked a pack a day and had no exersise.. I'm really trying to get to the bottom of fears of this. I've had echos, ekgs, bloodwork, ct, xray, all clear.
My biggest issue is relating a fast heartrate to an oncoming heart attack. My pulse is usually around 80, without anxiety meds it's probably around 110. Even though that isn't considered high, it still feels like it.
