I've been on before with some panic and anxiety questions. And it has seemed to help with those...I now however feel as if it's something completely different. I'm a 26 yr old female, I do smoke (and yes I know I should and will quit) I have occasional drinks. Which I know can bring on more anxiety. So I stay clear of drinking too much and some days not at all. But here recently I've been having chest pains. Sharp intense random all over chest pains, back ache, neck ache. It feels like it's right in the middle of my chest and it just comes on all of the sudden. Doesn't last very long but it always comes back. I do spend most of my time wandering when another one will hit me. I'm having chest pains constantly now, when I try to go too sleep it's as if my whole body becomes completely numb and I jolt up just after falling asleep. I feel like I'm losing control of myself. I'm so tired of hurting so I take ibuprofen daily, take and antacid daily (cause I talk myself into GERD) or I just try to cope with having a heartattack or possibly heart disease. As you can tell by now, I may also be a hypochondriac. I obviously need to see a doctor. But I feel maybe this could be brought on by anxiety? I don't want to be one who runs to the doctor after every single sensation that doesn't seem okay, and I do think this is a panic maybe. My upper body, chest, and back always feel tense. Can anyone else help by maybe sharing how they overcome this, or maybe even tell me these problems are similar to anxiety/panic?! All advise is welcomed and appreciated!!
