Ah dam lol theres always something i forget..
headaches whenever my held feels cold or numb :/
had a really bad pain in my armpit but im sure that was a lymph node.. is it possible for the lump on the botton of my sternum to be a lymph node?
Can a few panic attacks really cause all of this. So strange
I am glad that you went to go get checked out, but now you have to believe your doctors, in my opinion. With health anxiety, you can become immersed in what you believe you have a problem with; I was the same way when I was dealing with health anxiety issues concerning my heart. Every little pain, palpatation, sensation, etc, was a cause for alarm. If I thought about it, I had it...the mind can be VERY powerful and our instincts hard to overcome.
Throughout all of this, have you sought the advice of a therapist? Learning about this panic cycle is one of the best ways to get out of it in my opinion...keep us posted!
Thanks for reply.
Shortly after writing this i went to lay down after my workout and could have sworn my heart stopped, sounds silly i know but with this anxiety problem my heart seems to be pounding all the time and suddenly it wasnt. I jumped up in complete shock my body went cold and i lost it. All my emotions started coming out, Its the scariest thing ever! thing is you actualy believe what is happening is real.
Shortly after that, it happened again i went straight to the hospital and got an ECG done and blood test taken. It came back clean and nothing was going on, everything was normal. The Doctor couldnt hear/feel any palputations either so i guess it is all in my head haha! funny but not at the same time :D
I have been experiencing these exact same things!!!!!! I am still trying to figure this out myself. These pains are not really in your head. They are real. But probably nothing to worry about. I have been to the ER many times in the span of a month (5 times). Seen physical therapist, gastro DR, many internists, ct scans, xrays, blood tests and next is a Therapist.
Have you overcome this? Please let me know how you beat it if you have.
I also have similar experiances as you described, I can't enjoy anything fun with my kids, each time I try to play with them,I stop because I am affraid of having an heart attack, I went to my doctor few times and he checked everything even sent me to the chardialogist,who gave me a stress echo and everything seems to be fine. But this feeling every once in a while gets me worried and makes me think that I am going to have an heart attack.
My left arm gets such pains and but no numbness though but I get this burning pains under my ribs and in chest sometimes and it gets me worried.I am 43 yrs old and also take medicine for BP and Cholestrol.
Any comments and thoughts on that.
Also I skip beats sometimes as well.My doctor tells me that its all Anxiety, nothing else. Also I have allergies too and every time my allergies get bad I get these symptems, is that possible?
Oh i am with you my side has been hurting really bad lately..I think its my rib cage not sure or i have pulled a muscle it kills me.I suffer panic attacks which i have gone to the Doc and got checked out.But seems like when you have panic/anxiety attacks you experience something new everyday..I swear it gets old..And with you saying about it felt like you hurt just stopped oh i know what you mean sometimes i just feel like i just stop breathing but i don't but it feels like it..
