Posted , 3 users are following.

Iv just literally thought i was going to pass out the pain was that severe it came out of nowhere it was so sharp in my back where my shoulder blades are and now its gone to my front where both my breasts are I can't even describe how severe it was its really freaked me out it lasted about 10 minutes is this related to anxiety? Iv recently started my propranolol again this morning and its calmed my fast heart rate down but why has this pain all of a sudden come I seriously thought it was a heart attack or I was going to pass out! I felt ok all day too except for the odd flutter please can someone reassure me its not the start of a heart attack I can assure I haven't had this pain before not this bad literally in between my shoulder blades im so scared it made me dizzy its still there but not as strong im scared iv just took 2 co codamol what should I do if it comes back so severe again???
