My fear of Heart Failure has returned 10 fold. I'm 25, 5'8" and 220lbs, but am currently exercising and doing Tai Chi to get in shape. Everyone I know, my doctor included, has told me Heart Failure at my age is very rare, but the hypochondriac in me is completely ignoring them all. I've been having trouble sleeping lately, and I've also been feeling tired a lot lately, though I suspect that has more to do with the crappy weather than anything else.
My last doctor's appointment was a few months ago, during which my doctor listened to my heart and lungs and said they sounded fine. I don't think things could change that quickly, but...I can't seem to convince myself of that. All of my symptoms can also be attributed to anxiety, I know, but I can't help but to fret. I've wanted to avoid medication after my nightmarish experience with withdrawal a few years ago, but I'm wondering now if it's not such a bad idea.
Anywho, thanks for listening AnxietyZone. <3
