PEASE PLEASE HELP ME. It never ends. Every time I start feeling a little more confident that I am healthy another fear arises. This time it runs a little more deep. Recently it was the London Marathon and I saw on the news that a 30-year old army veteran collapsed and died 3 miles off the finish line. I have always been a big believer in exercise and for the past year and a half I have been training hard, doing quite a lot of cardio. After hearing this news I am now TERRIFIED that I am going to die of a sudden cardiac arrest due to the intensity I have been exercising. I have an appointment with my GP for the 11th of May but I am SO SO scared I am going to die before then. I have had severe health anxiety for about 3 years now and I have been convinced of a stroke, heart attack, clots and so much more and even called ambulances. I have been so close to calling an ambulance again but I HATE wasting ambulance time because it is so precious. I am only 17 and can’t leave the flat so if anyone can reassure me, it would mean the world to me. I often go dizzy but I suffer from sinus and have a cold thing at the moment but I can’t help thinking it is my heart... I read the odds are 1 in 50,000 but what if this time...?
