So I visited the doctor today to discuss some of the symptoms I've been feeling and to get medication for anxiety. He was actually able to ease my fears on some of the illnesses I feared such as colon cancer and lymphoma. Embarrassingly enough for me, he informed me that the area I claimed to feel enlarged lymph nodes doesn't even contain lymph nodes. I was prescribed medication for my anxiety which I'm happy about.
But here's the thing. Towards the end of the appointment he listened to my heart and immediately goes "Hm, you have a pretty apparent heart murmur. Has anyone ever told you that before?" Well no, they haven't. My heart was actually one part of my body that I haven't really freaked out over. He told me I need to schedule an echocardiogram. Of course my chest has been tight all night now and I swear I can feel my heart beating abnormally. I'm not even that familiar with heart murmurs. I guess they can be serious or could be nothing. Hopefully it's nothing, but of course I go to the doctor's to start treating my anxiety and leave with more of it.
