Anxiety and Health
« on: May 29, 2014, 11:22:57 AM »
Just a quick introduction here since there are so many different topics. About 4 months ago I started to get chest pain. Went to my PCP and told me it was stress. 4 days later I ended up in the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack. I didnít. Since then it has been a mess with doctor visits and still no answers. I have been to so many doctors and all giving me different opinions. They have put me on Zoloft and Klonopin (I am weening of that after 1 Ĺ use). I did not want to go that route but ended there. I still have the chest pain with a lot of other symptoms that come up. It just seem like something new happens every day and I canít get out of this hole I am in. So now I have anxiety and scared with health issues. The chest pain is what started all of this. Before this I was a very active person. I played basketball my whole life up to semi-pro level. I was not in the best of shape at the time but I was still playing basketball 2 nights a week and hockey would be starting up. I never had problems like this before. Hopefully, I will find some support and suggestions. Also, hope that I may be able to help others as well.

Any chance your chest pain is just acid indigestion? I used to get terrible chest pain and found cutting a lot of things out of my diet helped like greasy foods, chocolate, spicy foods, and caffeine. If it's not and your cholesterol is okay and it sounds like you take really good care of yourself I am sure it can be chalked up as anxiety. Anxiety can do a lot of crazy things to our bodies including chest pain.
