I wanted to first introduce myself, I'm Frank, I'm new to this forum because I'm new to this "fear" feeling. I couldn't resist joining a forum to help calm me down and get your thoughts.
So here is my story/symptoms:
I have not officially been diagnosed with Anxiety but I feel after reading I may be suffering from it.
My uncle passed away 45 days ago from complications from his heart. After he passed I started having difficulty breathing and felt severe chest pain.... Like a severe heartburn and this chest pain would go for days!!! I would not be social, have headaches and constantly have difficulty breathing. This wasn't just for hours I'm talking about days. So 1 of the days I started to really freak out my body felt week and begged my Dad to take me to the hospital. He rushed me to an urgent care clinic and I was over breathing and hyperventilating fearing I was having a heart attack. So the doctor checked my blood pressure my breathing etc.... Her diagnosis was you are having HEARTBURN mixed with ANXIETY.
I couldn't believe that Anxiety caused the "GERD" as she called it. So about 4 days later I still felt it was tough to breathe and chest pains. I went to another doctor and told him. Urging for more.... He did an EKG and an CHEST Xray and he said it all looks good.
So for about 20-25 days after that I was doing really well.. It didn't enter my mind. But all is a sudden I started having stomach pains and heartburn, and my stool would come out as Dirahea. I started freaking out again!!! That went in for a few days and the other day I started getting tingling sensations.
My hands and toes kept tingling, and they still are tingling right now as I type this because it's all I can think about. I feel fatigued as well! Currently right now as I type this I have stomach pain(no heartburn), I burp and it feels better, my toes and fingers tingle/numb for 4DAYS and breathing isn't easy!
What's strange is if I get my mind off it for a second the pain isnt there, the problem is it's all I can think about. I keep saying "why is my stomach feel like acid". Why is my stomach hurting me. Why are my toes and fingers tingling for 4 straight days. Plus an occasional headache.
It's SCARY! Plz tell me I'm not losing my mind. I'm 25 years old!! I haven't gone to doctor again because I've already gone twice. I'm tempted to get blood tested or CT scans BUT IDK !!
Are these normal? Thank you all. God Bless
