I wrote this in anxiety group because it had me scared. But I thought Id pop in here. I'll give a bit of history.
I'm 33, mom of 3 boys. My problem started Im guessing 2 or so years ago. I have bad panic disorder and anxiety. Well anyway. I kept getting chest pain. So Id go to the doctor and they'd check my lungs. Which were fine. I went and they did the same test over and over. I was fine. Well the chest pains started getting worse. Id get a feeling like I couldn't breathe. Then parts of my face and hands would go numb and sometimes Id sweat. I swore they were just really bad panic attacks. Only my anxiety medicine wasn't working.
I finally saw a doctor a couple weeks ago. And since I haven't been in for a long time he wanted to do some blood tests and an EKG. My EKG ended up not coming out good then had to go for a chest ultrasound. I don't know the results of it till my follow up. I made it after my initial appointment because he told me to do the tests no later than 2 weeks and follow up at 3. The technician told me it was left ventricle hypertrophy and that the wall of my heart was hardening. He told me it makes it hard for my heart to pump blood and oxygen.
So I see the doctor on the 25th. Everyone told me if it's serious he'd call me in sooner. Which I'm sure is true. But getting that news and just sent home was not a comfortable feeling at all.
