I'm scared that I'm having a heart attack again. This isn't the first time.
For the past few days I've noticed while I'm walking that there's this odd tingly/prickly sensation in my legs. Not unusual for me since I have a neurological condition, but it happened pretty out of the blue when I've been relatively symptom-free for a while.
Then, about two hours ago, I started having this pressure-y sensation between my shoulder blades. I thought I would feel better if I could make myself burp, but I could only make myself burp once, and it didn't help. After a while it got annoying so I googled it, thinking gallbladder stuff would come up again, and of course heart attack stuff comes up. Then I start reading and panicking. Now I've got this burning feeling from my ribs to my ribcage (I sometimes get this sensation after I eat hot cheetos). But it's weird. It doesn't feel like heartburn, it just feels like my nerves are slightly warmer than normal. If you've ever had an iodine contrast injection before, that's kind of what it feels like. So there's this warm feeling in my chest that keeps coming and going, and now I keep getting little stabs of pain everywhere - sometimes under my ribs, sometimes in my arms. I'm convincing myself that it's a heart attack and that someone's going to find me dead in my room tomorrow because I didn't call an ambulance. Don't feel nauseous, although earlier I was feeling a little queasy after I ate too much at dinner. I did have some pretty rich food and I also took ibuprofen, so I realize this could totally be reflux. But I'm worried because I've been having random palpitations all year when I never used to get them, and I've been having them lately along with shortness of breath whenever I'm outside (which might have something to do with the 85-90 degree weather we've been having), so now my brain is certain that I must be having a heart attack.
I hate this, I wish I could stop doing this to myself.
