Im new to this, so im wondering if anyone have had the symptoms that I am suffering with.
Many many years ago I suffered from depression, which i got under control. For the last 6months these chest pains along with panic attacks have happened, it doesnt happen every day, but this last 2 wks its been regular. Every morning I wake up I have this dull ache in my chest, at the lower part of my ribs, which sometimes I feel it in my back. This then starts off my attacks, nervousness, butterfly feeling in my stomach, diahorrea, palpatations, feeling sick etc etc. The first time it happened i thought i was having a heart attack, went to hospital checked over everything fine, heart monitored, blood taken, blood pressure checked.
The next time went to docs prescribed antibiotics for chest infection, chest still the same. I cant understand why im feeling like this as before I had a reason, hated my job, but last month I have started a new job which I love, love my family, money isnt fantastic but better than it was.
Ive just started going to a therapist 1st appt last wk to see if she can help.
Anyway the thing that is niggling me the most is this constant chest pain especially in the morning, it isnt a sharp pain, just a dull pressure type of pain. Now im going bk to the docs later to ask for a chest xray to see if i cn have some answers. Does anyone else suffer from this symptom and could this chest pain all be linked to my anxiety? Please help im in my late forties, and hate feeling like this.
Also I have bn taking some herbal tabs to try and calm me, but I cant see them working, Does anybody take any medication which does have an effect on calming especially during a panic attack.
