Yeah, I'm noticing a LOT of people on this site that have heart worries. I ran 3.16 miles today and ran/walked 5.22 miles last week! My heart worries are much less now that I had those tests done because I can attribute all of it to anxiety now.

oh man, i can relate to this SO MUCH.  It's like I'm obsessed with any twinge or slight pain or stress in my chest and automatically assume im about to die from a heart attack.   I'm curious as to how CBT is working out for you?  I've had three sessions so far and am a little skeptical.

snew I will tell you the same things folks have told me before, if you had a heart issue you wouldn't be able to do the things you do. If you ran over 3 miles with a heart problem you'd not be here typing on this board. Keep that in mind, it helps.

Thank you Mike.

jjZauis, three sessions isn't enough to make a determination. Keep going with it. I have enjoyed mine a lot, especially having a Christian therapist. CBT tends to be the best way to help control anxiety without masking the feelings through complicated medications, although sometimes medications ARE needed.
