Zosolizard- You sound like your living my life.....Mine started about 5 years ago. I was having palps and finally told i had MVP and it was all apart of that. I was put on a beta blocker to help with the palps and eventually the anxiety of them went away when they came less often. I was doing fine, would just have a few around my monthly cycle but i learned they were not going to kill me. Then back in March i started getting pains in my left arm i had read that that could be a sign of a heart issue so i started freaking up i obsessed about it all day and it landed me in the ER that nite in full blown panic mode. They gave me some ativan and told me to stop worrying. I went to see my cardio he did test and said my heart is fine and not to worry, well its not that easy now is it, they just dont get it. The pains kept coming along with more after a few days, i ended up at the ER again, this time they kept me and ran more test, those to were fine. I kept telling myself they were missing something. Well i had another trip a few weeks later to another hospital they said the same your heart is fine and wanted to put me on anti-depressants. I refused them. I dont want to be put on medication to TRY to make me feel better if there is something really wrong. My last ER trip was in May, since then i contiune to have chest pain, jaw pain, left arm pain, nausea, dizziness. Im to the point where i dont even bother going to the ER cause they say the same thing everytime. I went yesterday for a calcium screening to see what that test shows, the only test i have not had is a cardic cath, im to scared to get it done, they did say they would do it so i could put my mind at ease. I started having chest pains yesterday and im still having them, i keep trying to tell myself its not my heart, its gas or something so i dont go into full panic. I can sleep and not have the pain so i figure if it was my heart that wouldnt happen, that i would be in pain all the time. I agree with what you said.......if the pain would go away then the anxiety would go away. I dont have pain due to anxiety attacks i have anxiety due to pain!!!!!!!!! THEY DONT UNDERSTAND AND IT MAKES ME SOOOOOOOOOO MAD!!!!!!!!!!! I wish i had some advice for you all i can say is dont let them tell you something that you dont believe is right, keep pushing for answers until YOU feel comfortable with the answers. I live like this EVERYDAY i go to bed worrying about my heart and i wake up doing the same, it never ends. I am in anxiety therapy but it is not doing any good. It teaches me how to relax but i need help on getting this idea of heart disease out of my mind, cause once i can get it out of my head then my anxiety will be gone. Keep us posted on how your doing, coming here and reading and talking to everyone does help.
