Re: OCD or Hypochondria over heart worries?
I can help by saying I know how you feel. I started getting skipped heartbeats about 7 years ago and since then I have had every single heart test imaginable. All came back clean, yet, I can't shake the fear of my heart having a problem. I constantly check my pulse, have images of my heart stopping and me dying. Therapist says it my generalized anxiety disorder. Makes sence, but I still don't like living like this everyday, it gets very tiring. I have been in cognitive behavioral therapy for 16 months. While it helps, it is a long and slow journey. (everyone's experience is different, though)
