Just looking for a little bit of re assurance really or any one who has been through something similar..
I started suffering really bad from health anxiety since January last year. I have a boat load of physical symptoms - the main one being chest pain and left arm pain. I have a number of tests done (ECG, chest X-ray, blood tests) and everything was normal. Just as my anxiety started to drift away my 15 month old son died suddenly (December 2014 so only 6-7 weeks ago) since then I am suffering with horrendous pains in my chest, arm and back.. Physical activity seems to bring it on more but I don't know if that's cos it's in my head (I am so scared of heart problems such as heart attack).. I don't know where to start with getting my self better.. Just wondered if this is normal after what has happened or if I should seek further medical advice - I've been to see my gp but he just says it's all to do with what has happened - is this true?
Thanks in advance. Any help what so ever is much appreciated x
