Hi everyone basically I have been told I have "anxiety" this is so hard to believe but after 8 ecgs, 2 chest x rays, heart enzyme test, and blood tests all normal irs getting to the point it's ridiculous and I need to believ there is nothing wrong! I suffer badly with constant racing heart, palpitations, burnin type pain in left breast area and underneath and pressure and tightness in chest and I still can't get it into my head it's anxiety with such physical symptoms it's driveN me out of work for the past month as I have been so certain I am having a heart attack every time I get these symptoms I also feel like my chest is just gunna cave in because there's that much pressure this is why I find it so hard to believe it's anxiety even though I have been told by hospital /doctors etc! Long story short I'm currently on my 4th week of Propanolol 10mg 3 times a day, these haven't really done that much definitely calms my heart rate butbthen it comes back about half hour later, I was at my doctors today he prescribed me mirtazipine 30mg to take one a night! I done the stupid.mistake of reading the side effects and the biggest one is weight gain, I suppose that's a small.price to pay for getting rid. Of these horrible symptoms !! What's really worrying me is iv got all the above symptoms at the moment and I'm scared to take the mirtazipine in case it makes me worse or increases or adds to my current symptoms I sound ridiculous I know but I'm literally scard to take them doctors said it was ok to take with my propanolol I took this about half hour ago but haven't started mirtazipine yet, has anybody been in this situation regarding the same medication and symptoms? I just need some advice the only way I always feel safe and not feel like I'm having a heart attack is when I'm sat in a&e this is ridiculous I'm 22 female and this has ruined me completely as I can imagine it has other people I just don't see no hope in my future anymore I used. To be so outgoing and bubbly got great family boyfriend and friends but I just don't know how to carry on shall I take the mirtazipine and hope for the best sorry for the Long post any advice would be great thanks in advance laura x
