I'm new here. I decided to make an account to post this question because I am worried and hoping maybe some other people have experienced the same.
-Completely out of the blue a few weeks ago, I started having knee pain..followed by chest pressure,chills and stabbing pains in my back and ribs that brought me to tears. Background, I never cry and am a genuinely healthy person who has never had any major health problems, anxiety, etc.
-Went to ER a few hours later for fear of blood clot/PE or heart attack.
-They ran EKG, Ultrasound on leg, CT scan of lungs, blood test, etc. Long story short they said everything looked fine and sent me home to follow up with primary care doctor.
-Primary Doctor said it was likely just stress/anxiety and a lack of muscle that made me susceptible to nerve damage....
-It has been two weeks since that day everything began out of nowhere, and I have been having continuous random pains: Pinching/Stabbing pains in my heart, random shooting pains in the back of my arms & calves, feeling overall groggy/weak.
I am wondering if it is possible I could have had an anxiety attack without realizing and if so, is it normal to have continued symptoms weeks later? Is this my body still recovering?
I have never had what I understand to be an actual panic/anxiety "attack"...no sweaty palms, shortness of breath, ,etc.... Just keep getting these random on and off pains throughout the day at any point.
Could this all be anxiety related?
