      hey thanks..

      i have been diagnose with anxiety around 8 months ago..i had series of panic attack which led me to believe theres something wrong with my heart..and ever since then i cant seem to shake it off..even now as im typing i feel a weird throbbing sensation in my left side of chest..and it freaks me out..though i had lesser symptoms nowadays..the one that stays is good ebough to provoke fear of death..im 23..reasonably healthy diet ..dont smoke dont drink..dont do drugs apparently..i get sore achy feeling everywhere in my body but the one that scares me the most is the middle of my chest..and im just really tired of feeling low and down..i cried alot..i just wanna be normal..im always aware of my chest area..i dont know how to stop..i have had 5 normal ecgs and docs listening to my heart and lungs they said its all good ..and my blood pressure is good too..blood count is above average..i dont know how to convince myself my heart is fine and i can do what i want..like nowdays i dont even eat properly cause im scared it'll harm me..

      Hey

      I am 22 myself I was diagnosed a month ago with panic attacks and stuff. It all started with a racing heart and sweating. I was taken to a hospital and done ECG and other tests they were all fine. So I came to know my heart is fine then the pains went to my head so I did an MRI and it came out fine too. Now I have swere headaches they cause blurriness and dizziness and I just can't come over it I have to wait patiently and sometimes take medicine to make the pain go away I have been advised an anti depressant but I haven't used it. I am also going to a psychologist and it helps a lot.

    Hi , I suffer from panic attacks as well, I was able to get the attacks under control , but I have a lot of soreness throughout my body also , I've had cat scans and MRIs and they both MRIs and blood work, everything and everything came back with great results , but because I still have these sensations in my body , and in my head I don't feel like I'm healthy I still believe something is wrong with my back and my head , I just can't believe everything is okay by the way I keep feeling . I hate anxiety !!! I just want my life back 😢

      how did you stop the chest pain..crap isint it..mine started with heart then went on to cervical cancer..had clear pap smear done and now its back to square one again..i guess the constant ache and pains we're in forces our minds to believe theres something seriously wrong..but aches and pains are natural part of daily life just that out anxiety just magnify to like a 1000 times more intense..and purposely bring such sensations to our attention..

      I think the heart stuff stopped because after going to the emergency room over 7times thinking I'm having a heart attacks and evrytime the doctors telling me that my heart is in completely good health , I was able to convince myself that its only the anxiety ! And it eventually subsided, it tries to come back when I'm having a attack but I just breath and breeze through it !!! now its all a head issue I can't catch a break

      Ugh I thought that too , but if only it were that simple and easy , seems to be a bit more complicated , when will it all. End , kind of loosing hope at this point , but I'm going to keep the faith , and pray for us all suffering from anxiety and panic disorder !!!
