I have been reading some of the forums on here and have decided to ask my own question.
I am a 20-year-old male that is suffering with Health Anxeity.
I have been living with constant chest pain and arm pain now for last couple of weeks and have visited the A and E a couple of times for the pain. Each time I have an ECG and a Blood Test to see if my Heart is all okay, each time is clear. I just don't believe the results though. I am still in the pain and am unsure. I just think that it must be my Heart. I cannot break the cycle.
the Dr's have said that it is Muscle strain mixed with Health Anxiety.
I have avoided going to A and E in the last couple of weeks since last visiting and have been going to my DRs instead. The Dr listens to my heart and tests my movement along with looking at my previous tests, and tries to reassure me that nothing is showing up as being wrong.
My Blood pressure seems to be normal, but my pulse is always high. High being above 80, around 100.
Can anxiety really cause the pain and in my experience the anxiety is caused by the pain which then causes the spiral to increase the pain? I have CBT booked in for September and am currently on no Anxiety meds.
is this all really caused by Anxeity?
