Bad health anxiety
Jul 15, 2010
Hello! I haven't posted on this board for quite a long time. My anxiety started 6 years ago and over the past 3 years or so, things haven't been too bad. I still worry day to day about little aches and pains but nothing that freaked me out too bad. In the past I've been convinced I had a heart problem, stroke, brain tumor, MS, cancer, and many others.

I'm under a lot of stress right now and I'm getting ready to take a 5-hour drive to the beach in a week with my kids and my mom. I'm already worried about the trip as I am not very comfortable driving unless I know exactly where I'm going but now I'm having problems with my Jeep so I don't know what vehicle we are going to take, so this is stressing me, too. Anyway, about 2 weeks ago I was moving very heavy furniture, which I should have left for my husband to do, and afterwards I noticed some tight feelings in my chest. I'm 36 and in pretty good heart attacks/strokes in my parents (only bypass surgery in grandparents in their 60s). I tried to brush it off as a muscle but it still freaked me out a bit. I kept myself busy for a couple days but the worry kept creeping back. I couldn't help but worry that what if something is wrong and happens while we are at the beach. Since then I've experienced a feeling like I can't breathe right, yawning a lot, constantly taking deep breaths, fleeting chest pains, sore muscles in my upper back and chest, tingling in hands, hot feeling in my face, nausea, no appetite, strange full feeling in my stomach...the list probably is longer but I can't think of everything right now. Pretty much all these symptoms I've had before, but they are really intense right now. I tend to focus on my physical symptoms so every day has been different. I'm pretty sure it is all just anxiety because when I'm busy with other things I feel fine but as soon as I'm sitting in front of my computer to work or in front of the TV, I start feeling panicky. This is probably the worst my anxiety has been in a few years. Can anyone relate??
