I'm back again.... Really struggling

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey everyone, been awhile since I have been on as my Health Aniexty was still there but no causing me to be down and constantly worrying. Most days yes I was in a panic but only maybe last a few minutes, worse cause few hours but today it's back worst than ever.

got up this morning and all okay, but about an hour later I took a really funny pain/sensation in my upper back, between my shoulder blades it kept coming and going. However I started to Google and seen it could be a heart attack common in woman, so all day I've been up to high do worrying that I'm having or going to have a heart attack. I've rand the doctors twice but no appointments and had to go out to the shops when I got there I was really out of breath and panicking - thought I was for collapsing, this could have been the aniexty too.

so it's a bad day I scared out of my wits and keep checking my heart rate on an app. I am only 34years old so it probably isn't, but the thoughts are there xx

      Thank you Emily. Yes it really isn't nice. I guess we do know deep down that it will be okay but that isn't our first thoughts. I usually am obsessed that I am having a stroke or have a Brian tumour but today it's a heart attack and it's been a rough day. I did have plans for a big day of cleaning but I hit rock bottom it was a sofa day xx

    I rather suspect it's not as you are still here what's your heart beat

    sometimes the osophagus can clench and that gives pain in between shoulder blades

    the pain you describe and location sent what you get with heart attack
