Hello everyone my name is Daniel (male) and I am suffering from anxiety which I hope it's really anxiety and not any heart health problems. I'm 22 years old and been dealing with anxiety for 6 months already it all started when I was driving, I stop breathing for some seconds and got really scared and almost fainted. My vision was going darker and darker. I thought I was going to die. Later on after that day I started over thinking and thinking and here I am now 6 months later having chest pain , pressure and discomfort feeling it also goes to my back. My nerves twitches all over my body and my legs and arms get numb with homes aches and pain on my left neck. Also pain on left side under armpit where ribs are, under left side just below chest where stomach is at.
Also I have had 3 ecg ( ekg ) done and 2 chest x-rays and all of them came clear.
But I still have a doubt because I don't understand why I still get chest discomfort. Chest feels likes its twitching at times and like if my heart is weak. I'm always thinking I'm going to have a heart attack any day. Doctor told me it was acid reflux because I also get really bad pains as well and that I should be careful on what I eat so I started eating really healthy and nothing but water and cinnamon tea with organic honey and nothing has made me feel better about my chest.
Here's what's weird though I been playing soccer since when I was 10 years old and haven't stop playing not even a week since then and I'm now 22 years old about to be 23 in January. 2 months ago I couldn't play anymore because I would feel my pulse all over and on my head and almost fainted. And so I stop playing as much as I used too i started losing interest on the sport I love best. One day my anxiety got better. One day I decided not to give my passion away and set my mind thinking it's just anxiety nothing it's going to happen and if it does I'll die doing what I do best. And so it work and now I'm able to play again and I'm able to run a lot with no chest pain or anything just when I finish playing it starts back again. That's what's really weird and makes me think well if I had any heart issues why am I able to run and sprint as fastest I can with no problems and but then I keep thinking over and over that there is something going on my heart because i seriously do feel really bad discomfort and a feeling like my heart needs to gas. That's exactly how it feels like my heart needs to gas and it's floated. Sorry I made this so long but I just wanted to express my self and it might help someone else that's going through what I'm going through.
Just so you guys know i have a 2 month old baby and that I love with all my heart and I'm married. I been happily marry for about 2 years and a half. My life is good and nothing worries me but my anxiety that it's making me really depressed.
Plus I don't most smoke but I used to drink alcohol almost every weekend with friends 5 to 7 beers .
Thank you for your time , please help 🙁😟😔
