For the past month and a half my life has been crazy. Worrying about my health and experiencing a wierd heartbeat lead me to believe that I was having a heart attack and I ended up in the ER.
The results from the ER came back as negative and they said that I possibily has a panic attack. My blood pressure was through the roof 190/86 or in that ballpark. After this event I kept having chest pain and I always thought I would have a heart attack or a stroke.
I have been plagued with physical symptoms ever since. My fingers will get cold, half of my face would be numb, fingers would tingle. Now the main symptoms that occur for me is pressure on the back of my head, some chest pain, and occasionally pain in my arms, sometimes they feel heavy.
I talked to a cardiologist and my GP. He thinks that I am having anxiety issues and I have been perscribed stuff to help with blood pressure and cholestrol. I haven't had follow up test but I will soon, my heart appears to be normal besides a it being a little fast.
I have loss 15 pounds since this happened, my blood pressure is 125/80 and I am still worried that I am going do die. It's not every day and I feel like I've gotten better, but I am going to training in a different state for a couple of days but I am scared that I could have problems. I don't know what to do, please help. How do you guys handle this? Is this normal? I feel like I'm close to getting out of this funk, but I'm scared that these symptoms mean I could have something serious
