Hi, I'm still a newbie here so let me just start off by saying that my health anxiety is really bad and it affects me on a daily basis. I have something that's really bothering me right now, and that is the fear of an impending heart attack. I'm only 15, I exercise, I eat healthy, and my doctor says that I am physically fine. I know heart problems are rare for my age, but I can't stop thinking that I could be the next statistic. I've literally had almost every symptom of a heart attack, except the actual heart attack itself. I've had chest pain, arm pain, jaw pain, anxiety, stomach aches, headaches, and palpitations. By chest pains I mean every type of chest pain possible except for a crushing pain in the center. I remember I had this one symptom yesterday and I couldn't tell if it was a palpitation, a muscle twitch, or a body jolt. I was just sitting in the car trying to relax and got a shooting pain on the left side of my chest. It was close to my heart, and my left arm jolted right after. I'm so terrified right now and it feels like hell to me. Why do panic attacks and heart attacks have to be so similar??? I'm only 15, I feel like I'm wasting my life by thinking about this so much. I'm so paranoid I check my pulse all the time and whenever I get chest pain I freeze in terror to see if my heart's in trouble it's literally killing me. I'm even scared of just the words HEART ATTACK and HEART DISEASE and CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE and CARDIAC ARREST that I'm exhausted by day's end because of all this worrying!!! I don't want to have a heart attack but all this stress will raise my blood pressure and give me one someday!!! Or it could possibly give me congestive heart failure and I don't want my heart to enlarge! I'm so paranoid I've watched videos on heart attacks and congestive heart failure and watching hearts enlarge and not get enough blood supply and I just freak out! I've also read that 45% of heart attacks happen before the age of 65, so I can't get the stupid thought out of my mind. I'm terrible at thinking that I just have anxiety, because nothing feels like anxiety to me anymore so help would be appreciated!
