Hello. I'm trying to figure out if I'm having anxiety "attacks". In a nutshell the last few months I have been in and out of the ER. Always the SAME symptoms, tight chest, tingling sensations in my arm, tight throat and definitely light headed. I'm ALWAYS thinking I'm having a heart attack. I have a constant worry of health issues if I feel one little pain. I Google EVERY pain or symptom I have.

This evening I drove my girls to dance class. I thought for sure I'd pass out. My chest was tight and i felt dizzy.

I'm just hoping Someone can help me shed some light on this. I go to my doctor on Tuesday. I just have to talk to him about this.

    Those are anxiety symptoms, for me anyway. I've been through that also. The tight throat is the worst. Discussion with your Dr. About options. Relaxation is the key.

    These are all the symtpoms of anxiety/panic attacks. I have been having them alot lately and it feels like your dying. They are the scariest things to go through and you think something serious is wrong. I too google everything, every ache pain sensation and it makes me feel so much worse and convinced I have some terrible disease. I have been really bad for the last 2 months from googling symptomssad now I have to stop myself and whenever I want to google I read about anxiety and panic attacks ONLY. Good luck, it's really hard I'm still trying to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Everyone says it will get better and I am hoping
