I have been plagued with tons of different symptoms from my HA in the last 2 years. This includes being light headed, nauseous, stomach discomfort, gas, acid reflux, skin rash, headaches, frequent urination, chest pains. I have gone through all these symptoms at different times, with periods where I was fine and didnít have anything. Now I cannot go back 2 years ago and remember what triggered my HA each time, but the last 2 times have been VERY interesting and wanted to share with everyone.
In February of this year I remember one day at my desk sitting there and all of a sudden feeling a rush to my head followed by a light headed feeling. This was my FIRST HA symptom 2 years ago and immediately I started to panic and say to myself ďoh my god, not again. I thought I was done with thisĒ. This got me right away into a panic/anxious state and started dwelling about it and remembering 2 years ago when I was feeling light headed and sometimes nauseous. Well .. guess what ... I started feeling nauseous that day and since then up until now I have on/off nausea that goes away at night but effects me on/off during the day.
This month, I was also at my desk and for some odd reason placed my hand on my chest, left side. It felt very sore and started to panic. I started pressing it all the time and started to think it was something with my heart. Later that day, I started to actually feel chest pains (not touching my chest), again on/off and started to really worry that I was having some heart problems. The original area that was sore went away as it seemed to have been caused by an ingrown hair .... but guess what .... the chest pain (when not touching) lasted for about 2 weeks ... It eventually went away a few days ago.
This is all to say that we get triggered by something and create something bigger that isnít really there. In my case, I started thinking about nausea and got it and also started thinking i had a heart problem and started getting a pain. I really donít think itís a coincidence that timing was right spot on with when I started thinking I had a problem.
Any of you ever experience something like this ???? It is really crazy what the mind can do and I hope some of you read my story and relate to it. It might just make you realize that your symptoms are nothing to be worried about.
