Scared.

I am 17, you can say im an active person but have only really stopped alot of my exercise this year.
I went to see my doctor because of recurring panic attacks and high pulse and my doctor said it was because of stress. I had a blood test done and it didnt show of any diseases in my blood.
So i left it for a bit and tried to calm down and it hasn't worked. Im still a bit anxious although sometimes i dont feel it.
Point is, the reason that i am posting in the heart disease forum is because i have been having chest pains (only lately) and tingly sensations in my arms. I sometimes feel light in my chest and it scares me. I am getting properly tested by a heart specialist just to be safe and i would like to know (hopefully how little) chance there is of me having any sort of a problem with my heart? or is it all just in my head? It doesnt feel that way though i just dont feel healthy. Any comments on this? I would like to know what you think.

Cheers.

Re: Scared.

I believe panic attacks mimic the tingling in your arms, as you said you have panic attacks. I too suffered from these for years. Try relaxation, not as easy as it sounds. Its not just lying down and 'thinking your relaxing'. True relaxation can take weeks months to master. I almost fainted with panic attacks and learnt to focus on everything but my breathing....thats the key....breathing! It took a while to do this, but when i did learn to focus on something else i was fine. The worst thing about panic attacks i felt was that, the more you panicked the worse it got.....i thought i was dying. But with breathing excercise and focus you can beat it.
