I'm currently in the emergency room due to some very scary symptoms that could be cause by anxiety, but of course my mind jumps to the conclusion of seizer, stroke, and some sort of brain tumor symptoms. About 7 months ago I was deathly afraid of heart attacks and my heart in general, and my panic attacks worsened this. Most of my panic symptoms mimicked heart attacks (chest pain, heart palpitations, dizziness, shallow breathing, etc) but after dozens of doctor visits and months of not dying, alas I am not so much afraid of my heart, and my anxiety has seemed to adapt accordingly. I'm told changing symptoms can be a good sign, but it is also terrifying because I can easily identify "heart attack" symptoms, but don't know if it's just panic or actually a brain tumor etc because I haven't been tested for it. For the past few weeks I've had some strange head sensations (mild localized pain and tingling sensations) as well as mild distorted vision. Tonight I felt very weak in my legs, increased head sensations, muscle weakness on the left side of my body, and General discomfort making me assume stroke or something along those lines. The wait here in the emergency room is very long and my symptoms have lessened a bit. I am hoping for some peace of mind while waiting. Can this all be explained by anxiety? I know none of you can give me a clear example, but is it at least possible this is only a panic attack? After being panic attack free for a few months, I am very disappointed to be feeling this way again. Thank you
