I've posted on here a few times and I've had lots of help, my anxiety seems to have got much better for a while but all of a sudden it's back with a bang..
I'm 23 year old female, 2 children, good job, no money issues etc..
I've been told by my doctor that I have anxiety and I am taking medication for it (fluoxetine) I also had a few sessions of CBT which seemed to help a little..
Just wanting abit of reassurance really, I'm so scared that I have something majorly wrong with me (maybe something to do with my heart - I feel like I'm going to have a heart attack and drop dead and any point) it's just all getting too much - I seem to have CONSTANT chest pains, back ache, my left arm hurts (which are all classic symptoms of heart disease) I'm also very very tired ALL the time, no matter how much sleep/rest I have the tiredness never goes away.
I've been to the hospital and they did routine blood tests and a ECG and said everything was fine and that I am 'too young' to have heart problems.
I just don't know where to go from here, it's affecting my day to day life - I don't even like to exercise incase it brings on a heart attack! Every one just thinks I'm been silly but to me it's so real! Please some one help, I need to know if this is normal or not - want the pains and the worrying to go away!
Thanks in advance x
