I've posted here tonnes over the past year or so. My symptoms are very tight chest, shortness of breath, light headed feeling, vision problems, head/neck pressure, racing HR. These can be when at rest - not necessarily during activity.

I'm a 26 year-old non smoker, not overweight and eat reasonably healthily. I've had the usual tests (ECG, 24hr ECG, echo, stress ecg, chest X-ray, blood tests) and seen a couple of specialists in London who both said my heart was fine (along with numerous docs at hospitals across London in A&E depts).

I'm told it's probably anxiety but I just can't convince myself - it feels like it 'must' be heart disease. These symptoms feel soooo bad and it's 24hrs (sometimes far worse than others). Does anyone else have the same symptoms at a young age? Do you think that it could be anything else that accounts for all my symptoms?

I feel really really low and half expect that every night when I go to bed that I won't wake up in the morning. The selfish thing is (I'm married) the thought of dying in the night seems better than the chance of having to have open heart surgery as this has been my worst nightmare since childhood (one of my uncles had a bypass in his fifties and it scared the Hell out of me - although there's no strong history of Heart disease in the family). Even going for the stress tests, ech etc was really stressful and frightening for me.

Just for the record, I don't have "panick attacks" although I do think about my heart constantly.

Can anyone sympathise? I know hillery is in the same boat - anyone else? :eek:
