Well results are back..

Posted , 5 users are following.

Today's newest symptom is a burning pain deep in the chest.. It comes and goes for about 15 min, 5 seconds at a time.. Gotta love when new symptoms pop up! It happened during two extremely stressful points today. (one when my power went out and scared me half to death, the other when my doctor called lol). Anyways, she said that the echo (and I'm assuming holter) was normal. Now I'm just trying to tell myself that the burning pain isn't going to happen all the time and just watch some YouTube to relax. Its so weird finally having answers. I'm not sure exactly how to take it now. My mind is trying to wrap my head around the past 8 months of thinking I was dying and had a severe heart issue, to all of a sudden within 5 seconds of a phone call figure out theuve officially tested everything and that's it. There's no real issue. So weird to know that anxiety actually can cause this.

    Its a mean trick of the anxiety. Its used to you worrying and when you stopped it just popped up to get your attention. You had formed a habit with it but its a disorder your hearts fine. I do not  fully get why new symptoms form, things none of us ever heard of or new of but they do. And over time, a few months they too go away. Its really annoying and weird. Maybe its how this whole disorder feeds itself because eventually you stop fearing the symptoms you get used too.  I have had burning but it isnt the heart. Usually digestion related. Drink lots of water is the best thing i can think of and see if  pepcid helps it. Your heart is fine. Always check snd be sure if your on new meds that reflux isnt a side effect too.

      Are you kidding me? A CHILI DOG AND FRIES? You ate them for breakfast?

      I can't stop laughing - sorry - no wonder you've got indigestion and reflux.

      Have a really hot curry tonight for dinner.

      Oh and don't forget a double Big Mac with fries and a milkshake for lunch.

      Dieting? I am, too, having reached the disgraceful weight of 17st 7 lb. (245 lb).

      After six weeks I've lost 26 pounds hooray!!!!!!

    people don't realise just what anxiety does to you i had suffered many years with anxiety and depression but this last episode was the worst i couldnt think that anxiety can cause all these problems and more even down to the "lump" that was in my throat for weeks the excessive palps and the irrational thoughts i kept getting,I had anxiety for years and nothing like this so something must have been serious right? I am now in a better place at the moment thanks to councilling and medication  I look back and think omg anxiety actually caused all of my pains aches and stress.
