Thank you for your reply, Staceylee.
Unfortunately, it's been about six or seven days and I still have a lot of little aches and pains.
They seem to be all over my torso - sometimes it's my neck, other times my shoulder, and (most alarmingly) occasionally in my chest.
A couple of hours ago, I was on the phone talking to a friend when I rolled onto my left side. While lying on my side, I found it painful to breathe. I rolled off that side, and over the course of 15 minutes, I rolled from side to side and found that I felt that slight pain every time I was on my left side. I felt a sudden wave of pure fear - a falling sensation accompanied by a very cold feeling in my arms and legs.
I fought it off, and now I'm sipping some warm tea. It feels like my body is hyper-sensitive to every little sensation. When I'm anxious like this, and I drink something hot or cold, I can feel it traveling down my throat and into my stomach. That's very weird, and not exactly pleasant.
My biggest worry is that my anxiety will make it harder for me to detect more serious problems. What if one day my chest pain is a real indicator of a heart problem, but I dismiss it as anxiety?
At first, after the initial scariness wore off, I actually started thinking I would be able to easily defeat anxiety if feeling scared was all it was. But it keeps manifesting itself in different forms - first I was worried about my breathing, now I'm worried about my heart.
