Worrying about heart attack symptoms
« on: April 08, 2014, 01:15:40 AM »
For a week I've been having these pains throughout my arms. It's in my right arm but then sometimes travels to my left arm. And I do have a little chest tightness sometimes too. Then I started worrying about having a heart attack... I've been sweating a lot and I feel fatigued. My family thinks I am crazy because I am eighteen and think it's impossible to have a heart attack. How do I get over this?  :spineyes:

Just know usually the symptoms of a heart attack are not fleeting such as the ones you're describing. Look at the likely hood of it being a cardiac vs. you age an risk factors, which I assume is pretty low. My anxiety creates a lot of symptoms in my chest giving me the fear of heart attacks all the time.  You're not alone :)

I can't remember the last time I went a day without chest pain.
