I am wondering if anyone could share thier views on my current issues or if they have experienced anything similar.
I'm Male 32, slim, fairly healthy (no smoking, occasional drinking). Fairly regularl workout routine.
End of November last year I admitted myself to ER as I thought I was having a heart attack, turns out I wasn't and the ECG results came back ok. I was relieved after being told, and that it was likely to be a panic attack and that I'd possibly injured my chest through over-training either punch bag or weights. A few months later the pain came back, I suspected this was because I had trained again too soon, even though I felt ok.
Some chest discomfort is still present now, some tightness, shortess of breath and tickling sensation and has been there for a few weeks now. Seen my GP a few days ago and they mentioned that my blood pressure was high (140/90), this made me anxious further and I now monitor it at home every morning and night and log. Since then I have noticed my sleeping hasn't been great and I have lost my appetite somewhat.
I have noticed that blood pressure tends to go up after eating, then back to normal sometimes my heart races a little too and I can feel buzzed and my heart pounding. Also noticed a slightly bulging vein on my temple.
I think my anxiety around this issue lies in wondering if it's best to get fully checks just in case something is missed.
Do these symptoms sound familiar to anyone? Do you think I should go to GP again and ask for further tests or wait it out for a few weeks and see how it goes?
