Really bad anxiety help please

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all so earlier this year something snapped and I became massively anxious particularly health anxiety which ALWAYS focusses on cardiac related conditions particularly heart attack and sudden cardiac death syndrome.

I'm 34, male overweight and has had tens of ecgs all of which I've been told are normal except for a q wave in lead 3 and a slightly prolonged QTC at 475ms which again I've been told by a doctor, registrar and consultant is normal however after checking on google anything Above 450ms is apparently abnormal !!

What worries me is I've been getting a dull 'poking' sensation in left side of my chest and cold hands and feet though my bp is normal as is my finger oxygenation also my cholesterol is raised but normal and all my other bloods and even had a coronary calcium score in 2011 which is normal !!

The pressing in my chest I can sometimes replicate by pressing where it's sore (I do have costochondritis aswell) but I sometimes also feel light headed and not quiet with it sad

Anyone else have similar symptoms is this my heart or is it my anxiety either way I can't live like this it's killing me :'(

(Pain in my chest has never been above a 3 on pain scale also forgot to mention my pulse is fine as is checked by Fitbit)

    I have heart health anxiety also. I don't have a day where I don't have chest pain or heartburn. First I had palps daily. Now it's daily pain. If I'm not anxious, I won't have pains.. But sometimes I still will even if I'm not anxious. I also have costo.. It sucks.

      You sound like a carbon copy of me anxietysite do you ever get a weird pain like a pressing pain in your calves and your arms too?

      The palps and pain combined though are a nightmare as I type this my heart rate is at 99 / 98 / 97 (dropping as I type haha) but I've had it as high as 159 before it's terrible as a lot of people don't take it seriously and just make out you're nuts
