I'm 33yrs old and I feel like I'm having a heart attack almost daily. I've had anxiety for about 10 yrs now and was told once in the ER that I have angina(not sure how they came to that since all they did at that time was an ekg,but ok).I have had numerous ekgs done,chest ct scan,cardiac blood work and wore an event monitor for a week,(had an echo done about 10yrs ago,but that was 10yrs ago so..). I was told I had some bouts of tachycardia,but it was in normal sinus rhythm and that everything looks good nothing to worry about. I dont get chest pain often,but i do get discomfort in my chest(mainly in my sternum area),left arm and shoulder pain,jaw pain,neck pain and upper back discomfort. My blood pressure is great in the low normal range,heart rate is usually 75,80 while resting,cholesterol is pretty good...It's interfering with my everyday life and I hate it. Everyone tells me I'm a hypochondriac and I dont disagree,but I am genuinely terrified that I'm going to have a heart attack and I cant help it. Any advice on what to do or how to not freak out?
