Hello again, so I just thought I'd write on here again as I'm struggling but trying to power through. Some of my physical symptoms have seemed to change...basically my story is that I was diagnosed over a year ago with anxiety...I've practically dealt with it on my own, no medicine minus the first 8 weeks after being diagnosed. I believe I have medical or illness anxiety? I seem to think the worst in every feeling or ache and pain etc that happens to me. The last couple of weeks I can't budge from my mind that I'm going to have a heart attack as I get tons of tension in my shoulders, arms (especially my left) and chest (especially over my the heart area) I keep thinking I have a clot, heart disease and everything that is life threatening. Can anyone to relate to these symptoms? I also get a lot of pins and needles in my left hand & the sicky feeling evey now and then. They don't all come at the same time though, I've had bloods, ECG & HOLTER monitor done...all clear. My thought train of worry began after what I thought (and keep telling myself) was a anxiety attack and suddenly had severe heart palpations (never had them before with anxiety) & now I can't seem to shake this worry of the worst to do with my heart. I keep getting this practically all day inner shudder too like a tremor? If anyone can help with advice or relate that would be brilliant. I just feel down and keep telling myself it's anxiety, but it just won't shake, I keep getting a feeling of tight or tension I guess over my heart, it almost feels bruised to touch or when the muscle is used,
Any help would be amazing.
