heya. my name is jess and i was diagnosed with anxiety in 2017. I didnt really struggle with it until last year after i post my mom. i was also in a wreck last june that ended up with me being septic. after 2 surgeries and a year of healing its almost healed completely. i have panic attacks and constantly check my heart rate thinking its to high or hard. and ive had ekg's, cardiac panels, blood work, the whole 9. and it always comes back normal. only thing ever is that i have to many red blood cells. which could be from the sepsis and my body coming back. i also have severe gerd and constantly burp. always have pressure in my chest and stomach. are these 2 maybe related? anyone else experience this and it go away? i take propranolol to lower my heart rate and block the adrenaline to keep panic attacks to a minimum. still worried its my heart..

      My fiance has went through this with me for the 8 years we've been together. I've had all this doe the past 16 years of my life if not longer. You'd think I'd be used to it by now, but each time it's just as worse and as bad. My fiance and 2 years old son are the light of my life, mashed be the happiest, but within my self am screaming for relief at times

      Completely there with you both! All my tests, blood, EKG (name it) came back all normal. But know I am not crazy, just stress and anxiety ridden.... Everyday to every other day. Makes me feel fatigued 😩😴 tired etc....

      I recently was in the ER for chest pain. Ecg came back normal, chest x ray was normal, found nothing wrong with me, but I was convinced I was dying. I've also been having neck pains/aches, scaring myself into thinking there is something wrong with me. I've determined it is most likely due to my anxiety and emotional stress. I've purchased a rose quartz face roller and Gua sha stones to help relieve tension. So far they have helped tremendously, I put them in the fridge, it is so relaxing and makes me feel so much better. I listen to this app called Dare when my anxiety and panic get really bad or I need to relax. The exercises are extremely helpful in getting me through my panic attacks and anxiety. I also take medication, Hydroxyzine, which helps but not always.

      I also have a lot of muscle pain from being sedentary for so long after my wreck. I also have severe gas and am always burping or uncomfortable. Today has been pretty okay other than the occasional feeling that im vibrating but thats anxiety. Exercising comes few and far between. Im scared my heart rate will get to high. Idk i want to be better. Do better. Yanno?

      I feel like a hypochondriac because of all these four things going on with me and all, but have to tell myself because it it real, mentally emotionally and becomes officially as well. With having severe anxiety and and panic, stress doesn't help, and I even get this severe neck pain that hurts with all of it. Thank you all for truly understanding what in going through. Finally people who truly understand because they're going through same, if not similar exact things, not just someone who says they understand when they have not been through it

      So sorry to hear that, I've also had panic attacks after losing a family member. I also take propranolol to keep my heart rate down and it mostly works, but I understand the anxiety that comes from obsessing over it which just causes it to tick up. If you're anxious about your heart I would recommend doing what you can to take care of it, like exercising and meditating. Doing what you can helps with the mental aspect and the physical, and has worked well for me. Also my name is Jess too lol

      I have a 2 year old son and a fiance they are both my world, but when it comes to my health, I feel alone even though I'm not lonely and can tell my boyfriend everything, you have to have someone go through it to truly understand. And you are not alone I read your message and it so sounded so much like me

      Makes you feel alone too, because with me too, it truly debilitates and cripples me to where I feel paralyzed at times and can't do anything like enjoy life etc
