TEMPTING TO CALL 911

Posted , 5 users are following.

I was experiencing a little bit of breathlessness the other day when i was at the mall.. And my heart was sort of racing but not that much... I felt a bit nauseos and thought i was gonna croak. Ive been also getting this a bit while walking. Right now im lying in bed and i have a headache sad when i get up i feel weak and that i might fall.. My legs shake and everything... I dont feel like i will black out... But i just feel like i might tip over or something due to loss of balance. Im having a bit of nausea and i dont know if it could be heart related? Ive been having stomach problems since i was 6. But i looked up that indigestion is often a symptom of sca or heart attack. The heck its like i cant win here!! And ive been getting a bit of pain in my chest but its usually burning pain.. And i get a burning sensation in the back of my throat .... Could this be GERD or warning signs of cardiac arrest? I also get little pings of pain which feels like its below the sternum... Which freaks me out!! Im also worried that it could be pulmonary embolism?? Please help! ( i had a fear of pe before, but it went away and now it came back )

I cant go to the ER. My parents are getting really frustrated and are considering sending me to psych. sad the only way for me to get to the hospital is to call 911. Which im tempting to do but my parents will flip!!! They might even get divorced because of this craziness! Which i dont want... This is horrible. They keep telling me to stop acting stupid and grow up. Which makes my blood boil inside.. But i dont say anything... My mom also said that im just faking it for attention.. Which made me want to freaking scream and throw stuff... But ofc i didnt and i just relaxed and took a shower. I dont know what to do!! Everyday its a new symptoms and i cant help but think of going to the hospital. Even if its pysch... Any advice to calm my nerves?? I dont think this is a panic attack...

    This started at six? what happened to you as a kid? Feeling this way at six is a response to something. A psych is a good idea you know. This isnt a fait life for you at all. You are not "physically" sick love. You are trapped inside your head.mind games and very poor coping mechanisms and patterns you have formed. Id take them up on the psych part.

    i dont think you can heal yourself, by yourself. You dont "snap" out of it like that

      I KNOW! My parents want me to "snap out of it" but you cant!! You are right about that one. But ever since i was six... I've had digestive problems.. Because my mom has a thing where when she eats things.. She gets sick.. I dont know the disease i think i could be irritable bowel syndrome? Im not that knowledgable in the gastric department 😂 But i have a family history of stomach issues and indigestion. Ive had acid reflux since i was 6 but it wasnt so bad. Ever since i got anxiety ive had bad flare ups. Sometimes its so bad the the pain in my chest is tight and it feels like my heart is being squeezed. Its difficult to breathe.. And all that. Ive been really gassy and nauseous lately.. And its annoying. I heard that indigestion and stomach problems could be caused by the heart.. Because not enough blood is reaching the stomach so it could cause indigestion and nausea. And MANY people experience these symptoms before they collapse. And they do experience ANXIETY. Part of me actually wants to go to psych. But i dont want to miss out on school! I currently i have As and Bs and i dont want that to be affected by that whole thing. Have you been to a psych ward? What is it like? My grandma was in a psych ward and she wanted to get the hell out!!!

      Hold up not a psych ward, your not ina situatiin you need a psych ward at all!! A psychiatrist love  not a ward! You are functional.

      You just have mean parents (sorry but i think its true). Your Mother is stressed out and impatient. You know why..i will tell you. IBS is anxiety. Look at that. It is. You are in different degrees of it. Its gentic and learned.anxiety runs in your family.

      who knows, ill give you parents the benefit of the doubt for one second and say maybe you scare them. They cant bare to belief now you have anxiety. So they are mean about it. One huge selfish act on their part.  They are trying to sweep you and your issues under the rug. Shame on them and she

      Shame on you Mother. 

      I have never ever seen in my life, in my world anyway where one person in a family, a child no less..has an anxiety disorder but noone else in the family does. not unless they have been abusing you, which still means one if them or both would have mental issues.

      *******I just read your response to nick. I was unawre you have adhd. That could be why you have anxiety. It accompanies adhd. I still think your parents need more patient with you though.

      Youre right about anxiety running in my family. It does!!! But i dont think my parents deserve any shame... I think you were also right about how this could be scaring them! Its so hard being a teen.. No one takes you seriously. At least you guys do.. Which i really appreciate. Parents think that their teens always fake everything just for attention.. And then they wonder why we think they dont understand anything. My dad is a little bit more patient with me than my mom is. But they always use the "you dont have life experience to know what it feels like to have heart disease or anything" but thats a very bad excuse. Although its very rare.. Teens and young children CAN get heart disease! They can suffer from such diseases and its horrible. You're never too young for anything. I feel like people need to understand that.. Im not a doctor but anyone can get anything at anytime.. Good or bad.. Doesnt matter how old you are.

      You do not have heart disease. They are usually born woth it or catch it at a young age.usually.  Its manifesting as bodily symptoms.the mind is so very powerful love. Your mom should know it manifests she has ibs. 

      Somehow somehow be open to the idea the anxiety disorder manifests in your health. For you. Not everyone although high constant anxiety will absolutely deterioate a persons health. You must accept this is an anxiety disorder, an ocd so you can get proper treatment. Look up adhd and anxiety and read about it. That would have been the proper search. Mot the crap you are doing with symptom searches.

      I cooies and pasted this...Treatment Is Critical to Success

      Scientists have speculated that genetics may be to blame for why ADHD and anxiety disorders can co-exist. The important thing is that both conditions need to be treated to help the patient best manage their symptoms. 

      Cognitive and behavioral therapy, relaxation techniques, meditation, and sometimes medication can help calm the nervous system and allow patients to live their lives to the fullest.

      The reason why im concerned about my heart is because of genetic mutations. They're not the same as heart disease from what ive known... Or im not sure if a genetic disorder is considered a disease. Often they are not detected until its too late. Which makes me concerned... I no longer fear i have lqts...

      If i laugh dont be offended. You traded fears thats all. Please love it is called ocd for a reason. Its not going to stop. I will tell you the peak uber test for an anxiety sufferer..immune and an allergist center do gentic testings. Its about three thousand dollars. Will provide you with a list of what is in you and prevalent. An anxiety disorder persons bible of fears. But it exists. If your parents want to do it, without giving you the result they can answer your heart fear. Will it fix you u.NOPE. You will find something else to worry about anyway. This is why psychiatrist is needed to help you and cbt for ocd.

      D*** why so expensive?? Its ok if you laugh i totally get it. I could never have genetic testing.. Not gonna happen. My mom had a holter and it was normal.. So that got rid of my fear. My cousin also had an ecg and it was normal.. So im guessing having any genetic disorder with the heart is highly unlikely

      I entirely disagree with your assessment of Cristina's parents, LISA.

      They've spent a fortune on tests for her. They will even soon have ro pay for the ambulances she keeps calling for nothing. Here is the UK not all people even get into the ambulance.  If the paramedics decide they don't need to be seen in A & E, they simply don't take the patient.

      Cristina is one of a group of young teens who for somw reason believe hey heart disease.

      I am baffled by this.

      She  NEEDS therapy tess. She needs love and support. Yelling at her wont heal or help her. Feeding and enabling it was useless. Yes tests need to be run but she needs psychiatrist to help her. They cant just threaten and scream. It wont help her. She is 17. Feels scared and is helpless so yes her parents needs to get a grip and get her a psychiatrist and begin helping and supporting her healing.

    Lisa is right, Cristina. This isn't fair to you at all. I can promise you that you're physically okay, but your mind is not okay at all. You can't be expected to cope with all this by yourself, dear. None of us can do that. You really need to get into some kind of therapy or psych, because then you'll learn better coping skills. And if your parents believe that you're making all this up for attention, then I hate to say it, but they're being very selfish. This isn't about them, it's about you.

      Thanks you nick for understanding me!!! I feel like they just dont get it ! And they say im selfish and ungrateful. Now im not trying to say they are abusive.. Or are horrible parents... In fact.. They are actually really great parents.. And i love them with all my heart.. They are generally really easy going and nice people! And we get along for MOST of the time. But this whole anxiety thing is getting out of control. Im going back to therapy soon. Hopefully it will help! Ive been to a psychiatrist and he diagnosed me with ADHD. Which makes a lot of sense!! But im not gonna explain that because its off topic..
