I've been suffering debilitating anxiety for 7 months now and despite having CBT, it's getting worse!
I've had ECG's and blood work done in A&E and by a paramedic who came out to me and all was normal but I can't shake this absolute terror that there's something terribly wrong with my heart and that I'm about to die!
I'm 30 years old. I don't smoke, don't drink, don't have diabetes, I'm not overweight and there's no family history of heart disease but I keep reading all this crazy stuff on google about young people randomly having heart attacks and aneurysms and I'm terrified that it'll happen to me. So much so, I can't even leave the house!
I just don't know how to break the cycle! A year ago I had no health concerns at all and was living a normal life! Now I spend 90% of my time laying on my bed in tears!
Sometimes I manage to convince myself it's "just" anxiety but most days I'm convinced the indigestion, bloating, heart flutters etc are a sign of something really sinister!
Does anyone else feel like this? Or has anyone ever felt like this before and can tell me how to break the cycle!
