I think I finally may have hit wrong bottom, I feel like im in a very deep hole with nothing to help me out of it. For the past 4 years I've had so much anxiety over my general health, different types of cancers etc, but my main one has been my heart. I've had everything from chest pain, to shortness of breath, to the skipped beats, thought its beating to fast, thought its beating to slow, thought its beating irregularly.. im only 24!!
I've had every test I could possibly have my heart for someone my age, ecg, 72 hour ecg, stress ecg, echocardiogram, stress perfusion cardiac MRI...
But I still feel like i'm going to drop dead, I had a funny episode just before my holiday a couple of weeks ago where I feel something fluttering in my chest for a second, my breath went and thats it stopped.. was only a second or two. But now i'm here thinking was it some deadly arrythmia, what if i lasted longer and I didnt get my breath back?
Argh Thing is with stuff like this the tests mean nothing if you dont get it on an ecg tape.. you cant go in the docs and say it.
I've had this before ages ago, nearly the same but the flutter/tremor was on my chest externally just below my ribs, it was only last a second but it would take my breath away, i know it was muscle because I see it move and it was always in the same place. I don't know if this was a panic attack or not, i know if what i experienced the other day was just the same as that but not its internal, maybe it was my esophagus fluttering?
ugh, deep hole, no ladders to get out. I've got my first ever CBT therapy in two weeks, should be fun..
Doesn't help that I got home yesterday and my missus said her friend who's 24, does loads of massive bike rides etc, got home the other day and kept going in and out of consciousness, took him to the hospital and they think he's had a heart attack.
Great.. set me back ages again. Ive just been to spain for two weeks where I was ok, i forgot about it when soon as i've come back home it's hit me again.
