Hello everyone, let me just say first I think this is great - to have a place where people with the same issue can come together and talk.
I am 20 years old, I did some stupid things when I was younger, I smoked a lot of cigarettes, I used different drugs (designer drugs as well) and even became addicted to Benzodiazepams (Xanax and Valium) for almost 5 years. In September it will be two years since I am clean off drugs and cigarettes (I did smoke cannabis a few times, but nothing more not even alcohol). I have been having during these whole two years symptoms that resemble cardiac problems, and have been told by doctors that it is all down to anxiety. When I first went to the doctor he gave me an ECG and blood tests, all came back normal, since then some days are better than others but moments like now were I feel every single cardiac symptom possible and more even. I am here because I want to know I need to find another doctor fast or if these things REALLY ARE just truly down to anxiety (if that becomes the case then the mind is MESSED UP) I have pain in my chest, left arm pit area, down my left leg down to my feet, sometimes going to the other leg, pain on mostly my left arm but also my right, my back hurst, the left side of my neck and the left side of my head like as if there is something wrong with my arteries. The pain I feel is strong! These are not pins and needles, this hurts! Has anyone else every had things like this? By the way I know these pains are connected because for example, if I feel pain on my thigh (inner) as a 6/10 for example, I will then for sure feel a 6/10 pain coming on my left arm pit, inner left upper arm area, and then throughout the rest of the body, please I am so scared, the doctor will see me again in 1 weeks time.
Thank you so much in advance.
