Hello everyone, new here.. I am 20 years old and have had anxiety since the last time I smoked cannabis (17) after smoking for 5 years I woke up one day to smoke and had a horrible panic attack, and never could smoke again. Over the last 3 years every couple months I convince myself I have either lung cancer from cigarettes or diabetes or some other illness and it's crazy how positive I am when I get these thoughts.: lately over the past 2 weeks it has been my heart again.
I went to the doctor for a sharp heart pain when laying on my left side that eventually went away and was determined to not be my heart,
and while I was there the doctor listened to my heart and said it sounded normal and my lungs sounded clear and that felt good to know the rest of the day, before I left she reccomand I go to a cardiologist but I was so happy about my lungs and heart I said "no need" as she stated for peace of mind
The next day I got a call about being put on anxiety medication, after talking to the same doctor when I asked if she really strongly reccomands a cardioligst as I would be paying cash she brings up "well I think you should just to be safe as you do have a heart Arrhthmia and heart murmur" I started freaking out over the phone asking if I need to go, also I was having a panic attack when she was listening to my heart.. Is there a chance she thought I had an Arrhthmia because my heart was racing because of th panic? Also I've known about my heart murmur for almost 2 years now but when I first found out I wasn't worried
Now I am freaking out as they told me it could be months before I get an echo test.. I've had 2 ekgs and both doctors told me besides a heart murmur I was fine and never mentioned an Arrhthmia
The last 3 days I have not been able to work as I just zone out thinking of the cardioligst telling me I have MVP or AFIB.. I'm not sure how to cope and since I went to the Doctor I have been having constant pulse of around 100 even laying in bed and at work my heart will randomly make a flutter feeling that last half a second every little while.. I wouldn't say I'm paranoid but I am almost certain I'm gonna be told I have a heart problem as I have never been for an echo before.. I will keep this updated although it may be months before the test if I make it that far :o
