    That's just anxiety, there is no why, it just is what it is. You can spend a lot of time wondering why, it won't help at all. See a Dr about anxiety treatment, meds or therapy, the choice is yours. Don't be pushed into either one, choose the route that suits you

    That's just how anxiety works.. Its horrible. Your mind is terrified of worrying it's going to happen again, so in turn it's telling you to be scared.. The hospital said you're fine, so just try to slowly get back into your comfort zone. If you dont, there is a 100 percent chance that anxiety will take over your life.

    Start by trying to stay alone for an hour a day.. Go outside for a walk. Tell yourself outloud you are fine.

    Hi Zena, I'm going through hell at the moment... chest pains, feeling numb/weakness, heart palpitations and dry mouth and not to mention how this is affecting my life!

    I was also admitted to hospital recently with a suspected mini stroke but was admitted later on that same day.

    Had to later on see a T.I.A Consultant who assured me it was just a panic attack but since then been experiencing severe chest tightness and been convincing myself I am having a heart attack.

    All this started from my headaches which have resulted in more tests and I have to have a CT Scan and I'm just freaking myself out as am expecting the worse...

    I have all the symptoms of something serious especially as I've been suffering eye migraines as well..

    sorry I'm not really helping you at the moment just thought id share my experience too..

    Lots of love x
