I've been told I have health anxiety and GAD as well as BPD
Lately I've just felt so ill, been having pains in my left arm, palpitations, chest pains. I've been to a&e on a few occasions and had ecgs and blood tests but they haven't showed anything. It's my understanding that they're only good at detecting something that has already happened (heart attack)
I'm really worried as my dad had a heart attack at the age of 45 and apparently this has increased my risk significantly. Only trouble is my dr won't allow me to have any further tests like a stress test or 24hr ecg which I know would put my mind at rest as my dads ecgs prior and even one after his heart attack showed up as normal. As soon as they see you have anxiety or are suffering from HA they dismiss you as crazy.
I'm going out of my mind with worry. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
