hi there,
am feeling a little down at the mo, have just had a sharp pain in the chest and thought this is it!
Its hard to feel positive when things like that happen, you think "i've got this all sorted im not scared, nothing going to happen"  but then you think i could have died then, it could have all been over.
Sorry to go on, it's just a bit much somtimes

Dear Jim,

Good Morning, sorry your feeling slightly down.  When ever I have a weird pain or my anxiety kicks in and I get the "I am going to die" feeling I usually reason with myself to just "stop" the thinking as there is Nothing I can do if it truly was my time"  This usually does the trick.  Why worry about something that you cannot control?

If you having new chest pain sx or you have a cardiac problems than seek out medical attention.

Happy New Year.

Hi Jim,

It really is hard to stay positive sometimes when you're having weird pains.  But I do agree with Kitt, why worry about what you can't control?  Try to  just go with it and tell yourself that "this to shall pass".  I know it's hard, but just try to be as positive as you possibly can. 

Please keep posting and let us know how you are doing.

I totally agree we cannot control all we feel from this DD or disorder so just go with it
Many ppl with a/p have chest pains and feel like they are having a heart attack

HOWEVER as Kitt said IF it concerns you to the point where you are truly worried and think it may be a heart problem
PLZ seek a professional's help ...........
